These are notices from the newspapers of men that were killed or died from injuries while serving a Wayne County Union Army during the Civil War.

This was posted for about 2 weeks on the 'old site' Nov., 2004.  Then it  got lost in the moves of new sites and new computers.  Novw, 4 yrs later, it is back to stay.

When Tia came to stay with me during 2004, we went to a library to read the microfilms.  We started out finishing vital announcements but came across these death notices of our Civil War Boys.   She read and I typed, now you get to see it all.

Thanks Tia!

DIED. - Wm. H.  Haines, of Co. D, 87th Reg. Ills. Vols, of Camp disease, at the U. S. Marine General Hospital, New Orleans, La., Jan. 4, 1864.

The deceased was born in this county, March 9, 1864 and joined the 87th Ills. April 13, 1864.  He was the only brother of Cpt. Dan Haynes, of the 18th Ills. and the youngest member of his family.  He was an affectionate son and brother and his aged parents have in this their deep  affliction, the heartfelt sympathies of their neighbors and friends.

At first when Tia read the dates she thought she had her contacts in the wrong eyes.  We laughed but, the dates and brother's last name are as written in the paper.
