White County Illinois Veterans
in the Soldiers and Sailors Home
(1887–1916)

This database indexes the names of male residents of the Illinois Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home admitted from its opening in 1887 through September 1916. Female residents are also included from their first admissions in 1908 through September 1916. The database contains more than 14,000 entries. The 1st –16th Biennial Reports of the Illinois Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home are the sources of the names included in the database.

In 1885 the General Assembly created the Illinois Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home at Quincy to provide subsistence and a home for honorably discharged and disabled veterans of the Mexican and Civil Wars. In succeeding years Illinois veterans of all wars and veterans’ wives, mothers, and daughters became eligible for admission. In 1973 the General Assembly changed the home’s name to the Illinois Veterans’ Home. Since 1976 the Department of Veterans’ Affairs has administered the home.
