James Alexander Paregien - Private   
James A. Paregien was from Jackson County, Illinois. He was the son of Jacob Paregien. He and Hariett Brummett had nine children, including my grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Paregien.

He was fought at the battles of Fort Heiman, Fort Henry, Fort Donelson, Shiloh and Corinth (where he was wounded and subsequently dismissed from the service).

He rejoined the Army on Dec. 21, 1863. He was assigned to the 13th Regiment of the Illinois Cavalry Volunteers. He rose to the rank of Sargeant and was, in fact, a drill sargeant at Benton Barracks in St. Louis, Missouri.

However, he went A.W.O.L. for three days and was busted to a private and transferred to Company I, where he was appointed company bugler.

The Regiment was sent to Pine Bluff, Arkansas. He married Hariett Brummett there on April 30, 1865. He was mustered out of the Army on Aug. 31, 1865.

He died at the Old Soldiers'' and Sailors'' Home in Quincy, Illinois on Dec. 26, 1915. He is buried there in Sunset Cemetery (Division 6, Row 8, Letter N).

Francis D. Hubbel - 1st Sergeant   
Francis D. Hubbel was born on 13 August 1841 in Hillsboro, Montgomery County, Illinois. The second son born to Eleazer Hubbel and the first of two born to his second wife, Eliza Gaston Hubbel. The elder Hubbel was himself a military veteran of the War with Mexico, where he served with the Regiment of Mounted Rifles.
Francis (Frank) enlisted on April 16, 1861 into what would soon be designated as Co. H, 9th Regiment Illinois Volunteer Infantry. In reference to the emotional send off of the volunteers by the local community, he entered in his journal that ''there was 100 women at the depot to see us off and 100 men. Had to bite my lip to keep from crying and then could not do it.''
He was enlisted as a corporal, but by June was a sergeant. In July, with the call for 3 year reenlistments, he signed on again, this time being appointed 1st Sergeant; a rank he would hold until his death at Shiloh, April 6, 1862.
Before his death he took part in an aborted expedition, in June, to the Little River (Missouri); participated in the occupation of Paducah, Kentucky, on the morning of September 6th; fought in a skirmish at Saratoga Crossroads on October 26th; took part in a march in support of the November, 1861 Battle of Belmont, Mo. (a move intended to deceive Confederate forces of Federal objectives).
Although the Regiment was heavily engaged at Fort Donelson, in Feb. 1862, Co. H was on detached service as Provost Guard at Paducah, thereby missing the battle. They rejoined the Regiment about a week after the Fort''s fall.
After a brief stop in Nashville, the 9th retuned to the Ohio River and into the Tennessee River. By the end of March they were encamped at Pittsburg Landing, Tn. There, on April 6, 1862, the Battle of Shiloh opened and 1st Sgt Francis Hubbel was killed.
