-transcription note: Every effort has been taken to produce a true & accurate transcription, but errors may exist due to the occasional difficulty in reading the microfilm. The researcher should obtain the original record to confirm accuracy.

*See also discharge record for George Wexsmith. I am not absolutely certain, but believe both records to be for the same man, different enlistments & discharges.

Thank-you to IAGenWeb volunteer Constance Diamond for making these records available for transcription!!!
