Find Your Ancestor: Biographical Sketches, Arranged Alphabetically
Portions of what you see here are also included elsewhere on this website. On this page, however, names have been arranged alphabetically, making it much easier for you to find your ancestor. It is intended to be an all-inclusive listing of all soldiers in the 92nd about whom “at least something” is known.
There is one exception to this rule: Soldiers’ names are not listed here if all that is known is simply their hometowns, rank and “muster-in” and “muster-out” dates as spelled out in the Adjutant General’s Report. Such information is readily available on numerous other websites. (For the vast majority of 92nd soldiers, enlistment occurred 8/62, muster-in 9/62 and muster-out 6/65. Enlistment dates, muster dates, and early discharges other than on the above dates are given in this section.)
In addition to including wartime facts, this page also reveals personal data about soldiers who survived the war, such as genealogy, residencies, occupations, achievements, education, death, location of burial and so forth. Any quotes included in the following biographies have been selected from sources listed on “References” page of this website.
There are over 750 soldiers listed here. That’s a good start. But that also means there are nearly 250 soldiers about whom nothing is known.
Can’t find your ancestor from the 92nd Illinois listed here? Or maybe your ancestor is listed here, but you know something about him I don’t. If so, please e-mail me with any information you have. Let’s make this list as complete as possible.
I’d like to thank all of you who have already provided details. It’s great hearing from everyone! Much appreciated!

after first sermon in May, 1863, won respect and love of men and officers; men not ordered to attend preaching, but Cartwright found way to get them out. “At half-past ten, the usual church time, the melodious and sonorous voice of the Chaplain was heard, ‘Ho, Boys! Ho, boys! Come up here, and help me serve the Lord for half an hour, and I will help you in the trenches the balance of the week.’ That was a proposition, on the part of the Chaplain, that meant business. The boys took him at his word. He had a congregation of willing listeners, and the men did not afterward complain that the chaplain did not keep his part of the bargain. It did not run in the Cartwright blood to be lazy, and with a pick, or spade, or axe, the chaplain was adept.”
On one particularly very hot and showery day, dirt roads horrible for men and trains, men lightened up their loads by throwing away extra pairs of shoes, overcoats, dress coats and blankets. It was the first march for the new, old Chaplain, and the kindhearted old man knew the boys would want their blankets when night came, so he loaded down his horse with as many blankets his horse could carry. After reaching camp, he called the boys to get their blankets. He did not even save one for himself.

Giles, Charles H., Pvt.; killed as result of wounds, 9/17/63, Catlett’s Gap; of Giles, a fellow soldier wrote 9/17/63: “This evening the first man of our regiment who was killed in battle was buried. He was a young man belonging to Co. E named Charlie Giles. The chaplain took charge of the services. He was buried under a large tree with nothing around him but his blanket. A little pen was made of rails to mark the spot where he was left to rest.”
An additional account of Giles’ death follows:
“was a fine young man. We brought him to camp in our ambulance, and that night between 9 and 10 oclock laid him in his grave…the surroundings were impressive. Night in a forest. The whole of the woods for miles around sparkling with camp fires.” The chaplain offered a short prayer, then, “without winding sheet or coffin, he was wrapped in his blanket and buried. All that surrounded that grave felt that before many days some of our number would need the same kind office performed for us, and so it was.”

Shortly after treason of Benedict Arnold, Baron Frederick William von Steuben was at morning roll call when Connecticut soldier Jonathan Arnold was called. Von Steuben asked soldier to step forward and ordered him to report to him that morning. When Jonathan did, von Steuben told him he was too fine of soldier to bear name of traitor. Furthermore he should change his name. When Jonathan didn't know what name to use, the Baron offered his own. From then on Jonathan Arnold became known as Jonathan Steuben. The name change became official by governor, legislature and general court of Connecticut after the war. Jonathan was known as adopted son of the Baron. When Jonathan named one of his sons "Frederick William" after the Baron's, the Baron promised to give the child land in Steuben, New York. The promise was honored by the Baron's heirs. This Frederick died in War of 1812. It is assumed his brother, Benjamin Walker Steuben, son of Jonathan and Father of the 92nd Illinois Frederick William named his son after both the Baron and his uncle.
