– Published in The Burlington Weekly Hawk-Eye, Burlington, Iowa, Saturday, February 1, 1862, p. 2

Editor’s Note: The last person named in this list may be the John Elinger of Co. F, 9th Illinois Cavalry, who the United States Department of Veterans Affairs National Grave Site Locator states died Jan. 25, 1862 and is buried in Section 50 Site 694 in Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, St. Louis, Missouri.  However, his Pension Index Card on gives is date of death as June 27, 1909.  Based on these 2 conflicting pieces of information, I cannot make a positive identification.  It could very well also be a death reported in error.
