Israel Newport-b. 1848 Indiana

I am trying to sort out an Israel Newport, born about 1848 in Indiana, that married Amanda Harris Reese in Owen Co., Indiana in 1867. He & Amanda had William S. Newport in Vigo Co., Indiana in 1867. They then moved across the Wabash to Edgar Co, Illinois where John, Frank, Mahala, Jesse, & Chester were born. There was also a daughter that only lived a few weeks but not sure of birth date or place.

I think he is the same Israel that joined the 149th Indiana Infantry in Owen Co., Indiana in 1865, married Lou T. Cantwell in Vigo Co., Indiana in 1891, then moved across the Wabash to Clark Co., Illinois. He died there in 1915.

I thought he might be the son of John & Susannah Rainsberger Newport, but he married Mary Miller in Owen Co., Indiana in 1870 so he does not quite fit.

Does anyone have any Israel suggestions?
