Volume II, Part Two, Munsell Publishing Co., Chicago
KAYLOR, John - a retired farmer and prominent citizen of Illiopolis, Ill., is an honored
veteran of the Civil War,in which he served with credit for three years. Mr. Kaylor is
native of Johnstown, Pa., born March 8, 1836, a son of DANIEL and MARGARET
(EKIS) KAYLOR, the former a native of Pennsylvania, and the latter of Hagerstown,
Md. The paternal great-grandfather was a Revolutionary War soldier. A relic of him and Revolutionary days is a sugar
bowl over 200 years old, owned by Mr. Kaylor, but now in the possession of his daughter, Mrs. Clark of Illiopolis, Ill.
DANIEL KAYLOR was a farmer, who in 1860, moved to Edgar County, Ill., where he
lived on a farm until his death in 1882, his wife having died two years previously. The
family were originally from Germany, and the grandfather DANIEL KAYLOR also
served in the Revolutionary War. There were eight children born in the family to which John Kaylor belongs:
William; John and Theodore, the sons, and Mary A.; Louise; Ellen and Malinda, the daughters in addition to one who
died in infancy. William enlisted in Company H, Fourth Indiana Cavalry during the Civil War and died in Andersonville
John Kaylor received his education in Pennsylvania, spending his boyhood on a farm. As a young man he drove a stage,
being in the employ of the Ohio State Company, along the Erie and Pittsburg turnpike, beginning this work in 1853. He
drove a Coat-and-six from Mercer, Pa., to Iowa City, and after the Company moved their outfit of 200 horses and twenty-four
stage Coaches, he drove two years for the Western Stage Coach Company, operating between Des Moines to Adel, Iowa.
He then moved to Edgar County, Ill., and took up farming which he Continued from1858 to 1862, meeting with very
gratifying success. On August 1, 1862, he enlisted in Company H, Fourth Indiana Cavalry, serving during the remainder
of the war, receiving his discharge August 12, 1865. He enlisted at Terre Haute, Ind., and was mustered out at Nashville,
Mr. Kaylor under the Command of General COOK and George H. Purdy, was Captain of
his Company. He participated in the engagement at Perryville, with his divison helping in the taking of Nashville; fought at
Murfreesboro and Tullahoma, Tenn.; Huntsville, Ala.; Chickamauga and Missionary Ridge, and in the last named battle,
this divison Co-operated with General Grant. Mr. Kaylor took part in the forced march to Knoxville, helped to drive the
Confederates to Bulls Gap, Va., then returned to Cleveland, Tenn. May 2, 1864, the cavalry marched to Dalton, Ga., where
the Company was almost annihilated, only three of them surviving the Conflict. May 11, 1864, he was detailed for Courier
duty, which he Continued until September 2, after the capture of Atlanta, when he was returned to his Company and
regiment. Mr. Kaylor participated in the seCond battle of Nashville, marching with his Company to Eastport, Miss. thence.
March 6, 1865 to Jackson, where he took part in the engagement at Selma and Montgomery, and after the surrender of the
latter city to General Wilson, who was Commanding the regiment, marched to Columbus, and West Point, Ga., both of
which cities were captured. He helped to capture Macon, and soon thereafter peace was declared. Mr. Kaylor having
served much of the time as Courier, a position similar to that of Veterinary officer. He is now a prominent member of
Morgan Post, No. 208, G. A. R., of which he is Quartermaster. During his term of service, his wife and three children,
after being left behind, went to live with her parents. There they remained until the close of the Conflict restored the
brave husband and father to them. Mrs. Kaylor had two brothers, who also responded to the call of their Country, and
served in the Civil War.
For the past eighteen years, Mr. Kaylor has served as Assessor of his township and city and in 1920, was elected to
another two year term. He has lived in his present home for the past ten years, and is retired from active life. He spent
many years in hard work, being fairly successful in all his undertakings. Much of his effort was directed along agricultural
lines, as he has always loved farming. At the close of the war, he located on a farm near Illiopolis, which he cultivated for
thirty eight years. In politics, he is a staunch Republican, and actively interested in public affairs and issues. He has many
warm friends in the Community, and is universally esteemed. A devout member of the Christian Church, he is willing to
further any worthy cause.
Mr. Kaylor was married at Redfield, Dallas County, Iowa, August 16, 1857, to CERILLA VAN NORMAN, born in Knox
County, O., May 16, 1837, being a daughter of THEODORE VAN NORMAN, a farmer, who died in Buffalo, Dallas

From John Kaylor
I've been reading some long treasured letters,
They are wrinkled and yellow and old
But though faded and worn they are dearer
To me than their measures of gold;
For they bear on their pages therecord
Of the days where wars cyclone of wrath
Winnowed out the ripe grain of Gods harvest
Leaveing stubble and chaff in its path.
But these letters bear naught of Complaining
And never a doubt of our cause
In their steed of unflinching devotion
To the Country its flag and its land
Interwoven with words of endearment
To the loved ones at home far away
Are predictions grown strangely prophetic
When viewed in the light of today.
Shall I read you some lines from the pages
That have grown still more dear with the years
That have Come and gone by since thes letters
Received their first baptism of tears.
When we read them a hundred times over
Thanked God and (took Courage and?)
Since we boys who were rocked in the our cradels
Were the men who were wearing the blue.
For we knew they were loyal and faithful,
And where ever their tents they might pitch,
They would scale the grand mountain of victory
Or die in the very last ditch.
Who had whispered Godspeed when we left them
And marched off in our uniforms blue.
And the letters we wrote them are sacrad,
But I read from their pages to you.
From John Kaylor
Dear wife the smoke of the battel
Lies thick all around as I write,
But I know you are anxious by waiting
To hear the results of the fight.
It was long and intense and our Comrades
Went down thick and fast,
But the stars on our banner shown brighter
For victory crowned us at last.
We have buried our dead in the treanches
Our wounded are sent to the rear
God will Comfort and help us,
To win the good cause never fear
We Could fight on with (undoubted?) Courage
We Could face what ever might Come
And the struggle would end all the sooner,
If it were not for the traitors at home.
You may tell them for me that their hisses
May give strength for a time to the foe,
But secession is doomed and the Union
They can not destory or o'erthrow
For the government we are defending
Is the best that the sunshines upon.
Now may God bless you always, dear wife
Yours most loveingly, John.
And again my dear wife I can write you
But a few lines at the best.
For a prisenor cannot wase paper
To say what you all must have guessed
We held out till the last hope had vanished
To surrender was all we Could do
We are prisenors now - but our prayers
Still go up for the Country and you.
Once again How I long for a letter
Some news from dear ones at home
I have waited and yearned for some message
But no token or word has Come.
We are crowded in prison by thousands
And the list of our dead Comrade tell
How slow torture and steady starvation
Kill more than bullet and shell
From John Kaylor
I have written your over and over
How our boys one by one met their fate
Until now ten thousand are round me,
I seem almost alone - yet I wait.
For the tread of the Conquering army
To burst open thoes strong prison bars
And release what are left of our army
To still fight for the stripes and the stars.
Still another at last it is over,
And I write you dear wife to say,
You may look for me home now,
A parole has been granted today.
It was almost to late for me,
A few more days at the best,
And I to should of died in the prison
And been buried with the rest.
But thank God all is over;
The release we longed for has Come
With an army I marched to battle,
All alone I am (loitering?) home
On the boat were a lot of exchanged men,
Starved so they scarcely Could drag
Their poor feet, but thoes heroes
Staggered up and saluted the flag.
Shall I read of these letters still others
They are sacrad to me and to you
But I fold them and tenderly lie them
With ribbons of red, white and blue,
And I lay them away in their caskets
With tears for the boys we have lost,
And pray God for the cause which they died for
May be worth all the price it has Cost.
John Kaylor was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR).

THE STATE CENTER-RECoRD
Well Beloved Mother Passes Away
LIMNEY CERILDA VANORMAN was born May16, 1837, Knox County, Ohio. She was married to JOHN KAYLOR at
Redfield, Dallas County, Iowa, August 16, 1857. After her marriage she went in a short time to Indiana settling near Terre
Haute. She made these long trips across the unsettled Country in Covered wagons; that being the only mode of traveling in
those early days. She used to tell of incidents occurring on these trips that were very interesting; one especially of an
enCounter on the prairies of western Iowa with the Mormans who were then going in great numbers to the west.
Three children were born to her during her residence in Indiana, namely, Theodore, William and Amanda. While the
youngest was yet a babe in arms the great civil war broke out in which her husband enlisted. She, separated from her
husband by the cruel and uncertain perils of war, suffered as many brave, noble women in those dark days of bloodshed,
praying at home for the safe return of her loved one. She has often told of how when she would hear of battles being
fought she would make calculations from letters received whether her husband was there, and then of the long anxious
wait to know was he among the slain. Once the news came direct from his Captain that he was killed in battle and later the
glad tidings from him that he was not killed but captured and safely escaped. Only one, old enough to remember that great
strife can know any thing of the trials she bore during those long dark days when for four years she was a "war widow",
sustained by her faith in God and her love for the Saviour whom she had Confessed and obeyed since early girlhood.
While the war was going on she moved her little family to Morgan County, Illinois near Jacksonville; there her husband
came back to her when the war was over and they then moved near Illiopolis in Sangamon County, where they have since
After their removal to Sangamon County, seven more children were born to them: John; Mary Alice; Ednor; Charles; Eva;
Alfred and Gertrude. John and Alfred died in infancy, Gertrude died September 27, 1903. For the past fifteen years Mrs.
Kaylor had been a patient sufferer. Before her health failed she was an active Christian worker. She was a prayerful
woman not given to ostentation, praying to her God daily in her closet for help and guidance. She was a good daughter,
her sisters say a kinder sister never lived, a true wife and a good mother.
To her, death Comes not as a grim reaper to destroy but as an angel of peace bearing the heavenly message "well done thou
faithful one enter into the joy of the Lord". Her life is just begun, her toils and struggles, her pains and trials are over.
Hers has been a long and hard trial in that preparatory school which we call the world but she at last entered the higher
class where the faithful are peacefully at rest.
For the past four years Mrs. Kaylor has made her home with her daughter, Edna Clark in Illiopolis. She was taken on
Sunday March 1st to Springfield to the home of her son Charles at which place she became bed fast on last Monday and
she died Saturday evening, April 11th, shortly after sever o'clock.
The funeral was held Monday at the Christian Church in Illiopolis and the interment was at Riverside. Rev. A. P. Cobb
presided at the funeral and delivered a deep disCourse full of thought lofty and ennobling.
Miss Gertrude Ford who when a child, Mrs. Kaylor used to love to hear sing, sang the song "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere"
and the choir sang two of her favorite hymns.
She leaves four sisters, three brothers, three sons and five daughters, twenty nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild
and her husband, relatives and friends followed her earthly form of clay and stood by and watched it lowered into its silent
chamber in the city of the dead knowing that God in his wisdom and mercy doeth all things well; that while her body
beComes dust her soul has gone forth to the God who gave it and that she is safe with her angel babies united with her
daughter, clothed in a new body and new mind and calls us to Come home to her where all will be made clear, safe in
Heaven at last.
