Jim Willauer said...

Jeremiah Willouer - the correct alternative spelling is the original German Willauer was according to his record : Wounded in the "left side and back" on June 3 1864. He was taken to Carver General Hospital, Judiciary Square, Washington DC. He died June 22, 1864 - cause of death was listed as "Pyemia". When he died he possessed $1.34 in specie, a watch, wallet, a pair of trousers and a blanket. They were sent to his wife Elizabeth in Donaldson, Schuylkill County, Pa. His name is misspelled on his headstone, but then having the last name misspelled is 300 year old family tradition.
