The following data comes from the 8 volume set of Adjutant General's
report for Illinois, 1883. This was a gift to this project from Bob
Busch and we cannot thank him enough for his generosity!
This 8 volume set of books belonged to the founder of modern Orland
Park, Mr. John Humphries, who was a member of the Illinois General
Assembly in the late 1800s. His Grandson left this set to the society
and they generously allowed Bob to make copies of all 8 volumes.
We plan to transcribe records in the 8 volumes that are not online
at this time, more of the unusual and less heard of regiments and
correspondence, along with the burials of Union soldiers. Below is
what we have online currently. More will be added as it is transcribed.
You can refer to our other Civil War material, such as a list of
Statewide Pensioners, Pensions submitted by fellow
researchers and our Military Descriptive Rolls, along with visiting our County pages for more Civil War Information and Data.
The Illinois State Archives also has a Civil War Database online which lists
all men who served.
We hope you find this information useful and as Bob says, " We
hope you find Great, Great Grandpa!"
