9th Illinois Infantry History:
“On the 24th day of April, the NINTH ILLINOIS INFANTRY VOLUNTEERS was mustered into the service at Springfield for the term of three months. It was one of the six regiments organized under the first call of the President, at the commencement of the war of the rebellion. Six companies – A, B, C, D, E and F – were from St. Clair county; G, I and K, from Madison, and H from Montgomery. The regiment was ordered to Cairo, where it was stationed, doing garrison duty until the close of the term of service, July 26, 1861, when it was mustered out.

During that time the garrison at Cairo was composed of the 8th, 9th, 10th and 12th Infantry. The brigade at Cairo was composed of these regiments and the 7th and 11th Infantry, the latter being stationed at Bird’s Point, Mo., and the 7th a part of the time at Cairo, and a part of the time at Mound City. The brigade was commanded by General Prentiss.

During the three months’ service the work of the solider was made up of fatigue duty, building barracks, clearing off parade grounds, building fort defenses and the re-dang earthwork where the Ohio River is wedded to the Mississippi, and which guarded the confluence of those rivers from the possible advance of rebel gunboats.

The monotonous work of this period was broken only by one incident, a march into the swamps of Missouri, back of Commerce, after Jeff. Thompson. The marching column was composed of battalions from the several regiments, including one from the Ninth.

At the expiration of their term of service of the regiments herein named there was no force to take their place as a garrison, which placed Cairo and the vast government stores almost at the mercy of the enemy, but this difficulty was happily overcome by volunteer response from the officers and men of the disbanded regiments to do garrison duty until their places could be filled by soldiers who had enlisted in the three years’ service, which was from four to six days.

Some of the hundred and fifty of this volunteer garrison was composed of the Ninth Infantry, who proposed to re-enlist. In this way the enlistment was for the three years’ service began with the Ninth.

On this mere skeleton of a regiment of officers and men recruiting began in earnest, and in less than thirty days it was again a full regiment. It was organized at Cairo with companies B, C, D and F from St. Clair county; A and I from Madison; H from Montgomery; G from Pulaski; K from Alexander, and E from St. Clair and Mercer. On the night of September 5, 1861.

General Grant moved with the Ninth and Twelfth Infantry from Cairo to Paducah, Kentucky taking possession of that city early on the morning of the 6th, thus defeating a similar movement on the part of the rebels only by five or six hours.

The Ninth was ordered to move out and tear up railroad track and destroy a bridge which was about twelve miles out from Paducah. This being accomplished, the regiment returned to Paducah where it was stationed until early in February 1862. The brigade to which the Ninth belonged was directed to make a feint on Columbus, on the day of the battle at Belmont, which occurred November 7th, 1861.

The regiment made several reconnaissances during the time it was stationed at Paducah, Kentucky, but the chief duty was the constant drill and picket duty with the steady demand for fatigue parties for the construction of fortifications, which prepared the soldier for duty in the field.”

[ABRAHAM] A. LINDERMAN RE-ENLISTED AS UNION [YANKEE] SOLDIER, ON 14 AUGUST 1862, A SERGEANT IN COMPANY F, OF THE 117th. ILLINOIS INFANTRY , ENLISTED IN CAIRO, ALEXANDER COUNTY, ILLINOIS; DURING THE CIVIL WAR BETWEEN 1862-1865, BOX #000539, EXTRAC. 0053, RECORD #0000169.

We are proud German descendants of the LINDERMAN family, and the Scottish descendants of the HAMMELL family.

Abraham married Mary Hammell on 26 November 1835 in Newfield, Tompkins County, New York.
Abraham and Mary Linderman moved to Kane County, Illinois between 1837-8 with Abraham’s father, Ezekiel Linderman.

Abraham and Mary moved to Minnesota in 1856. Their homestead was at 231 E. Mark St, Winona, Minnesota.

He and Mary had one daughter, Mary Linderman, that I am positive about.
They had Elizabeth A. Eliza “Lizzie” Linderman (James)(Loftus), residing with them in 1857 Census for Winona, Minnesota. (I am not positive about who her parents were, because I have not been able to find birth records for her)
My Maternal Great Grandfather, Edward Francis Linderman, only spoke of her as Aunt Lizzie Loftus ( I believe that she is Abraham’s sister or niece).

According to several Census records she resided with them at 231 E. Mark Street, Winona, Winona County, Minnesota. She was born in 1843 in Illinois. She died in 1905 and is buried in the Linderman Family plot.

Abraham survived the Civil War, and lived until 1891 with his beloved wife Mary, in the Linderman Home place at 231 E. Mark St., Winona, Minnesota.

His wife, Maria “Mary” A. (Hammell) Linderman, preceded him in death, in 1884.
They are all buried together in the LINDERMAN Family Plot in Woodlawn Cemetery, Winona, Winona County, Minnesota.
