bullet  General Notes:

Jerome served in the Civil War from December 1863 to August 9, 1865, serving as a private, Company C, 15th Regiment, Illinois. He was captured and imprisoned in Georgia in early 1864, spending the remainder of the war as a POW. He appears on the 1890 Census Veteran's Roll, living in Beatrice, Gage County, Nebraska. An application for widow's pension by Clara E. Holroyd dated August 30, 1921 is filed in the state of Missouri. Their son, Leonard, was living in St. Joseph, Buchanon County, Missouri at that time, in the household of his wife's parents, so presumably Clara lived with him briefly after her husband's death.

The 1880 US Census shows Jerome and his family living with his parents in Eagle Point, Illinois, and indicates that Jerome is disabled with a dislocated hip.
