  Burial :
Unknown
  Samuel Keady, from Elkhorn, Washington County, Illinois

Served during the Civil War in the Union Army
with Co. F, 10th Regiment Missouri Volunteer Infantry
Enlisted on August 1, 1861 in Coulterville, Illinois
Mustered in as a Private on August 10, 1861 in St. Louis, Missouri
Dischared for disability on February 10, 1863
 
Died on January 27, 1925 at the Old Soldiers Home in Sawtelle, California.
Death information furnished by : Janeice Keady Crosson
 
Information furnished by : Mike Jones
Samuel Keady (Moses Keady's brother) was in the 1910 Malibu, Los
Angeles, California, census. He was an "inmate" (today, patient or
resident) of the Pacific Branch, National Home for Disabled Volunteer
Soldiers. He was born about 1842 in Ohio and was married.

 
In the 1920 census, there are two slightly different listings for
Samuel Keady in the San Diego, California, census. One has him 77 and
now widowed, with Ohio his place of birth. The other shows him in Los
Angeles Township at the National Military Home (same thing as the
“home” mentioned above), age 78. Here, though, his place of birth was
Illinois.
 
I believe what's going on here is that he was on "furlough" and
probably had a home or apartment, plus a residence at the Military
Home. My guess is someone else--a staff person--gave the census
information and, because Samuel served from Illinois, gave Illinois as
his residence. I don't know this for a fact, obviously. In any event,
he was enumerated twice.
