Burial Locations for the Men of Battery G

Sources for information on this page are included when possible.
As always, visitors to this website are encouraged to confirm the information they find here by consulting other sources, as well.
Some of these burial sites have been visited by members of the modern-day Battery G, and when possible, directions are provided to obscure or small country cemeteries. Additional section, lot, or grave location information within the cemetery is provided when known, as well as date of death. The bulk of this list has been compiled by Tim Tedrick, Tom Lyons, and Linda Barnickel. Other individuals have also made contributions to this effort.

This portion of this site is new and still very much under construction. Please be patient. Someday, we hope to have information on ALL of the soldiers listed below. If you can help by providing us with additional information, please let us know by contacting battg2@bellsouth.net and put “Battery G” in your subject line. Thanks for your interest and support!

Adams, Albert – Feb. 23, 1903. Elmwood Cemetery; Chicago, IL. Grave 6, Lot 2, Block 4. [Source: Roll of Honor, Deceased Ex Service Men and Women in Illinois. (Springfield, IL, 1929) Extracted by Tim Tedrick.]

Bain, Robert – April 12, 1923. Flagg Center Cem.; Ogle Co., IL. Approx. 1/2 mi. W of Center Rd. on S side of Flagg Rd. Flagg Rd. is about 1 mi. N of Rt. 38, extending W from US 251. Center Rd. is 2/3 mi. W of US251. [Personal observation and/or research by Tom Lyons.]

Calhoun, Andrew – CONFLICTING INFORMATION: Oakwood Cem.; DeKalb, IL. [Source: Roll of Honor, Deceased Ex Service Men and Women in Illinois. (Springfield, IL, 1929) Extracted by Tim Tedrick.] Ohio Grove Cem.; Sycamore, IL. [Source: “Civil War Veterans in/of DeKalb County, Illinois” brochure published by DeKalb Co. Hist.& Gen. Soc., Memorial Day Weekend 1999 and personal observation by Linda Barnickel, May 1999.] It is my conclusion that the Ohio Grove location is more questionable than the Oakwood location. I did not find a veteran’s stone or any other indication of Civil War service at the Calhoun grave in Ohio Grove. I have not made a personal observation of the grave at Oakwood. I tend to favor the Oakwood burial site because it appeared in the Roll of Honor. Linda Barnickel.
