My William Henry Hopkins 1838-1911 Private, Co. A, Iowa 9th Vol. was wounded at Missionary Ridge. He states in a diary that he was taken to a hospital in Nashville, TN where he caught the small pox and lost the sight in his left eye.

He's buried in Odebolt, Sac Co., Iowa and belonged to the Odebolt G.A.R. I also have a ribbon and pin from the Dan Patch G.A.R. He was married to Kate Moore in Jackson Co., IA in Dec. 1864.
