John Chancey Weidenhamer - Private   
Son of John Jacob Jr. & Elizabeth 'Betsy' (Glenn) Weidenhamer, born 2 Aug 1848 at Camp Point, Adams County, Illinois. Mustered in 14 Oct 1864 as a substitute; mustered out 10 Jul 1865. Fought at Bentonville, where there was heavy skirmishing in his part of the line. Occupied Goldsboro and Raleigh, then moved on to Richmond and Washington D.C., where the 12th marched in the Grand Review Parade. (My thanks to Gary Muffley for history on the 12th Illinois Regiment). Family oral tradtion states that when John Chancey's father, John Jacob, was drafted later in the war (after he had already been discharged for disabilities), and was unable to serve due to ill health, John Chancey enlisted to serve for him at the age of 16.
