Re: John McBoyle & Anne Elizabeth Ironsides
I have found Arvine Bassett in the Illinois Civil War Rosters serving in Company B, 52nd Illinois Infantry. His rank is Private, his residence La Salle, date of muster is 25th October 1861 and he was discharged,disabled, on 10th April 1863.
His son in law, Alonzo Rathbun also appears in these rosters serving as a musician in Company D, 104th Regiment, from 22nd August 1862 to 30th May 1865.
Hope this helps,
