Biography -- (Findagrave.com):

Private WILLIAM HENRY WISENBURG, Co. K, 86th Illinois

William Henry Wisenburg was born on January 7, 1842, probably in Knox County, the only child born to Louis Wydenbarger & Elizabeth Rebecca (Smith) Wydenbarger. Louis Wydenbarger was born in the early 1800's. He and Elizabeth Rebecca Smith were married on December 10, 1840 in Knox County, Illinois. William Henry was born in 1842. The story in the family is that sometime before 1850, Louis went west and was never heard from again. So whether Louis and Elizabeth were divorced, or whether he abandoned her and their young son, or whether he went west intending to come back for them and just never returned is not known. In any case, by 1850, Elizabeth and William Henry are on their own in Knox County.
Elizabeth Rebecca Smith was the daughter of Conrad Smith and Barbary (Knaus) Smith. She was born about November 2, 18__ in York County, Pennsylvania. The Smith family came west, settling in Illinois in Knox County in 1836. There Louis and Elizabeth were married in 1840. Elizabeth's name is sometimes listed as Whisenburcher or Wisenberger, but the name, at least in William Henry's case was eventually settled on as Wisenburg. Elizabeth was married to Carlos Alford on August 9, 1851 in Knox County and three children, Sarah E. Alford, Roswell J. Alford and Charles Alford, were born to them. Elizabeth's mother, Barbary, died on Sept. 5, 1852. Elizabeth's father, Conrad, died on July 12, 1863 and Elizabeth died in 1885. All are believed to be buried in the Smith Cemetery (also known as the Etherly Cemetery) in Victoria Township in Knox County, Illinois. At the time of the 1860 census, William Henry Wisenburg is found residing in Princeville Township with his mother and step-father, Carlos Alford. They are farming for a living.
On August 7, 1862, at the age of 20, William was one of the very first to volunteer to serve in a company of men which was being raised in Princeville, Illinois for service in the Union Army by Princeville School Teacher, John F. French.

When French had about 100 volunteers, he led the Princeville Company to Peoria, Illinois where they went into camp at Camp Lyon, near present day Glen Oak Park. On August 27, 1862, French and 95 of his volunteers were mustered into the service as Co. K of the 86th Regiment of Illinois Volunteer Infantry.
On September 7, 1862, the men of the 85th Illinois, which was also organized at Camp Lyon, and 86th Illinois marched out of the gates of Camp Lyon through the streets of Peoria, with much fanfare, to the railroad depot. There they boarded trains headed for Jeffersonville, Indiana and Camp Joe Holt, which were located across the river from Louisville, Kentucky. Three weeks later, the 85th and 86th Illinois were in the field in Kentucky as part of Colonel Daniel McCook's Brigade chasing Confederate troops. On Oct. 8, 1862, just six weeks after they had been mustered into the service, the men of the 86th Illinois were engaged with those Confederate troops, suffering their first casualties. There would be many more during the next two and a half years.
During the next year and a half, William served faithfully in Co. K, participating in and witnessing some of the most brutal and bloody fighting in the Western Theatre of the war. This included the Battles of Chickamauga, Georgia; Resaca, Georgia; and Rome, Georgia. William was most likely in the ranks of Co. K on the morning of June 27, 1864, when the 86th as part of McCook's Brigade made the bloody assault on what would become known as the "Dead Angle" on Cheatham Hill on Kennesaw Mountain, Georgia. During this 30 minute assault, the 86th Illinois would suffer more than 100 casualties and McCook's Brigade would suffer more than 500 casualties, all in less than 30 minutes. Several days later, the Confederates were forced to give up Kennesaw and the drive for Atlanta, Georgia continued. On July 19th, the men of McCook's Brigade were heavily engaged with the enemy during the Battle of Peach Tree Creek, Georgia. On the 28th of July, the Battle of Ezra Church was fought. The following day, July 29, 1864, as the Campaign for Atlanta continued, as the men of McCook's Brigade were moving into line of battle, Private William Henry Wisenburg was severely wounded in the left arm and was sent to the rear to a Field Hospital. William would spend the remainder of the war in Army Hospitals. Much of this time was spent in the Army Hospital at Quincy, Illinois. Finally, on April 7, 1865, after spending more than 8 months in hospitals, Private William Henry Wisenburg was discharged from the service at Quincy, Illinois and he returned to his home and family in Princeville.
William Henry Wisenburg was married to Nancy Jane Carroll on Oct 20, 1866 in Peoria County. Nancy Jane was born on October 18, 1848 at ____________, Connecticut, the daughter of Job Carroll and Hannah (_____________) Carroll. Job was born in Rhode Island about 1802, while Hannah was born about 1820 in Connecticut. The Carroll family came west where they settled in Princeville Township sometime after 1850, and probably after 1860. Four children are known to have been born to William and Nancy, They are;
1. Emma Jane Wisenburg; born Sept. 17, 1867
2. Willie (William) Eugene Wisenburg, born May 17, 1869
3. Louis Albert Wisenburg, born January 20, 1872
4. Mabel Almira Wisenburg, born June 19, 1879

William and Nancy resided in Princeville Township the rest of their lives, farming the land. In 1887, the surviving members of the 86th Illinois held a reunion in Peoria on the 25th anniversary of their being mustered into the service, August 27, 1887. William was one of 9 Co. K men to attend that first reunion. As the reunions continued, always being held in Peoria during the week of August 27th, William was one of about ten Co. K men who were almost always there, rairly missing a reunion. The last reunion that William was able to attend was the reunion of 1908. Private William Henry Wisenburg died the following spring on May 12, 1909. His earthly remains were laid to rest in the Princeville Township Cemetery. Nancy Jane (Carroll) Wisenburg died on January 15, 1912. Her earthly remains were laid beside those of her husband of over 42 years in the Princeville Township Cemetery.
