Soldiers of Monroe County, Indiana Who Died During The Civil War

Submitted by Randi Richardson

The information in this database was extracted from an "Old Bloomington" column written by D.C. Miller which appeared in the December 8, 9 & 10, 1947 issues of the Bloomington World. This newspaper is available on microfilm at the Monroe County Public Library in Bloomington, Indiana as well as the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis. A preface to Miller's 1947 column seems to indicate that he had extracted this information from the newspapers that were published during the war and immediately afterward. This database includes all the information that was in Miller's column - if a column is blank, it means that Miller did not include that information for that soldier.

Some of the spellings seem suspect - flexibility (and a genealogist's eye) should be given to the soldiers' names.
