List of ex-soldiers, sailors and marines, living in (Tama County) Iowa (1885)


Excerpts from List of ex-soldiers, sailors and marines, living in Iowa (published in 1886), by William L. Alexander, Adjutant-General for the State of Iowa. The link takes you to the entire 792-page book, which can be viewed online, or downloaded, in a variety of formats. The list below consists of those living in Tama County in 1886, alphabetized by surname.

The first part of the book is divided into chapters, one for each state. The text doesn't specify, but I think these refer to Civil War (War of the Rebellion) veterans, only. So, e,g., W.H. Anderson served in the Second Iowa Cavalry. The later chapters list soldiers from various other conficts before 1885, and there is one chapter for the Navy in the War of the Rebellion. I have put them in separate tables, below.

See more notes below the tables.

More Notes.

The "1885 residence" column refers to the "Present Post-Office Address". Several of these are in communities that no longer exist. I listed the ones with post offices in Tama County, although it is possible for someone to live in one county while their nearest post office is in another.

The book includes former Confederate soldiers, but none are listed in Tama County.

The information in this book was gathered by the Assessors for each township. These officers were already very busy collecting data for the 1885 Iowa State Census. The information was compiled and organized by military unit. Now I have done the opposite, picking out the ones in Tama County.

Please check my transcriptions and let me know if I have made any mistakes or omissions. The search tool wasn't working very well, and there may be some that I have missed.
