Company A
Joseph Ugron - Private   
Ugron's last name was spelled phoentically as 'Eugrawn' in his Civil War records. (He was born 'Hugron' in French Canada, and it was changed to 'Ugron' in Kankakee Co., Illinois.)

Military discharge paper for 'Joseph Eugrawn' were found among the papers of his nephew, Stephen Thomas Ugron upon Stephen's death in 1961. Joseph appears to have lied about his age. He claimed to be 18 in 1865; he was probably 16. The text:
