IOWA BENNS IN THE CIVIL WAR

In Reply to: WILLIAM BENN B 1876 IOWA by Dawn Anderson of 515

I noticed that you were interested in finding any info on Benns from Iowa. I have the c.d. index of The Civil War Muster Rolls of the National Archives. It lists 82 names of Benns who served in the Civil War. Four of them were attached to Iowa units during that period, and most likely had lived in Iowa when they enlisted. Here is the index information on these four. The "Box. Roll and Record" numbers indicate where the entire Muster Roll Record for a particular soldier may be located at the National Archives. The National Archives has a very useful website which explains how to obtain various records. Use an on-line search engine to locate it.
