1- Person #1 strongly resembles my third great grandfather, Jacob Reinig (11/19/1836 - 12/15/1909). He was a private in Company C under Albert Stoddard. I still have his original discharge papers and his wife's application for pension after his death in 1909. I think this person strongly resembles Jacob.  Submitted by Jason M. Staker, Nov. 2001

4- John Garing (wounded May 16, 1863 at Champion Hill – single mini-ball hit both jaw and arm based on his personal description of the event) Submitted by J Garing, July 4, 2018

5- William F. Rippey - name submitted by Carolyn Dennis

William M. Wellons, c. 19078- In the reunion picture c.a. 1900 of the above Civil War veterans from 10th.Iowa, it's possible that # 8 is my great grandfather, William M. Wellons, B. 4/4/1833 in Pulaski Co., Ky.  He lived in Warren Co., Ia. from 1853 until his death in 1922.  He was listed in the 1861 roster of the 10th. Iowa G Company as William M. Wellows, but Wellons is the correct name.   He was wounded in Corinth, Mississippi after 13 months in the service, and was discharged 10/4/1862.  He re-enlisted in Jan. 1865, and served 6 months in Co. C, 34th. Iowa Infantry.  He was discharged in Houston Tx. on 8/15/1865.  I have a picture of him with some of his family, probably taken in the summer of 1907.  The portion of the photo which included him is attached.  Allan Gerling New Martinsville, WV



8 - Robert Walton says he believes #8 is his great-grandfather James Walton who served in the 10th Infantry, company C.  James Walton enlisted July 31, 1861, was wounded May 16, 1863 in Champion Hills Mississippi, was captured and paroled and mustered out September 28, 1864.

8 - Douglas Carlsen is 95% sure the man in #8 is David Bowman Dillman. Born in 1820 and died in 1906. It says he served in Co K 10th Iowa infantry His information and picture are here.

22- It’s possible that in front is Knight Dexter. I’ve attached a photo I have of him in his uniform taken in 1863, the year he was discharged due to an illness that took him 10 years to recover from. He served in Company C under Captain Albert Stoddard. In 1864 he was elected Sheriff of Tama County, Iowa, a position he held for 9 years. There is more information about him at   Emily Williamson
