Hi, my first post here so, Hi to everyone. I was researching Martin DeBord and was given a photo of which. I thought was him, but he is not registered with the Illinois GAR which I think started in 1866
Martin DeBord enlisted as a private in co. a, 37th illinois infantry
His son also joined Martin DeBord when he enlisted in co. a, 37th illinois infantry , but sadly died.
Here is the picture but it could just be a relative and not him. The one without a hat has been identified as him, but could be wrong.
Thanks

Martin and John W. DeBord were both in Co. A, 37th Illinois Volunteer Infantry.

Where was Martin living post-war? He would have joined the G.A.R. Post closest to his home, regardless of what state he had served from during the war. I find Martin DeBords in Kentucky, Kansas, Nebraska, and Oregon, 1880-1930 -- though not necessarily in the G.A.R.
