Morgan County
Civil War Veteran's
Discharge Index
Papers Filed in the
Morgan County IL Courthouse

Every effort was made in providing a correct transcription, but as in any transcribed records, errors could occur and one should verify the correctness with the original document. Even then some names were mispelled, so check the variant spellings of your surname. If you did not find your Civil War Veteran in this index, they probably did not file their discharge with the County Clerk's Office. It has been noted that a filing fee of 5O cents was charged. Bear in mind that this was at least a half day's pay in that time era!

Copies of these discharge papers can be obtained by writing to the County Clerk, Morgan County, Jacksonville, IL.
