I recently found a Civil War Pension Record of Margaret C. Luttrell, widow of Jeremiah Luttrell. Jeremiah is my 3rd great grandfather. Margaret filed for a widows pension on May 5, 1866. Jeremiah was a farmer from Marion County, Illinois at the time of mustering in with G Company 23rd Illinois Infantry. In the Illinois State Archives, Civil War Detail Report is states that he enlisted on March 7, 1865 and on July 24, 1865 he was sent to the hospital. According to the records of the unit they were in Richmond, Virginia on July 24, 1865. I have not been able to find any other information regarding his cause and date of death. Did he make it to Richmond? Any suggestions?
