Malcolm J. Gillis - update 8/22/2016

Malcolm J. Gillis was born in 1839.

Malcolm was 22 years old and probably living in Muskegon County, Michigan, when he enlisted in Company H on May 13, 1861. (Company H, formerly the “Muskegon Rangers,” was made up largely of men from the vicinity of Muskegon and Newaygo counties.)

He died of disease on August 5, 1861, at Georgetown, DC, and is probably the same M. Gillis who served from Michigan and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

No pension seems to be available.

(Note the first photo is apparently shows a replacement marker without the original grave number though.)
