Daniel Frailey 29th IL Civil War Inform.

As it happens, my Daniel Webster Frailey wasn't the Daniel Frailey of the 29th IL Infantry Co A. (One old biography suggests Kentucky's 15th Cavalry, Co. F, so that will be my next try.) Here is the information for the other Daniel from the military records. The pension record is also available, since his widow, Margaret Frailey applied for it. The National Archive's file number is MO-C-177-726. Hopefully this will help with someone else's missing puzzle pieces. (And if this is YOUR Daniel, grab the Pension Record; they are usually treasure troves of information.)He enlisted July 29, 1861 in Elizabethtown, IL, joined for duty and enrolled there on Aug 13, 1861, and was mustered into service at Camp Butler, near Springfield, IL Aug 19, 1861. He was then 23 years old, fair complexion, fair hair, grey eyes, born in Franklin, IL, and was a farmer. He was killed in battle at fort Donelson, TN. The exact date of his death is a bit ambiguous, since three dates are given. It was either Feb. 13, 14, or 15, 1862. If anyone has a clue about my Daniel Webster, please let me know. I've hit yet another brick wall....
