Research question: Illinois Infantry, Regiment 101, Company K, Thomas J. Thomas
Posted by: Barbara (ID *****0177) Date: June 13, 2014 at 06:41:18

We have a Thomas J. Thomas in our line, and a Thomas J. Thomas served in the Civil War from Illinois. A Thomas J. Thomas was listed as drafted into service, age 43, farmer, born in Kentucky dated January 1863, record from:
U.S., Civil War Draft Registrations Records, 1863-1865.

How do I find out if he actually served?

There is another Thomas J. Thomas (Illinois Infantry, Regiment 101, Company K) who has this listing:
THOMAS, Thomas J., Private, Jacksonville, mustered Sep 2, 1862, Died, Memphis, Feb 9, 1863

So there must have been two named Thomas J. Thomas because the muster date for one overlaps the draft date of the other. Ours lived until 1891, but there are pension records for the llinois Infantry, Regiment 101, Company K.

What I'm asking is if there is any way to find out what's in those papers, or did anyone order those papers and help me sort out the two people named "Thomas J. Thomas"?

Also, could someone have been drafted and not served? I haven't (yet) found anything for another Thomas J. Thomas from Illinois.

Thank you for any help!!
