James Mooney in his 1896 work The Ghost-Dance Religion and the Sioux Outbreak of 1890, provided a more comprehensive list of all Soldiers killed during the campaign (it is buried in a footnote listed on pages 871-872). On his list (below) I have annotated updated name spellings and provided dates and places of birth and final burial locations that I've been able to locate. I'm also working to compile all of these on FindAGrave at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=375642
Following is the excerpt from Mooney:

"Below is given a complete list of officers and enlisted men who were killed, or died of wounds or exposure, in connection with the Sioux campaign. The statement is contained in an official letter of reply from the Adjutant-General's office dated May 26, 1894. Unless otherwise noted all were of the Seventh cavalry and were killed on December 29, the date of the battle of Wounded Knee. In addition to these, two others, Henry Miller, a herder, and George Wilhauer, of the Nebraska militia, were killed in the same connection. With the 6 Indian police killed in arresting Sitting Bull, this makes a total of 49 deaths on the government side, including 7 Indians and a negro:
