Not sure much about my 3rd Great Grandfather except he was from Fayetteville, Illinois. He was in the 40th Regiment, Company B and he was killed in action in Atlanta, Georgia on July 22, 1864. Also, in the U.S. Register of Deaths of Volunteers 1861-1865 under the remarks column it says 'Wm. Graham' I have no idea what that means. 02/04/2019 Update: Wm. Graham (William Graham) was one of the company surgeons. This is probably who signed the death certificate. See: http://www.civilwarindex.com/armyil/rosters/40th_il_infantry_roster.pdf
