The Illinois Soldiers' and Sailors' Home at Quincy has been serving veterans since 1886. It is still in operation and is now known as the Illinois Veterans Home at Quincy (external link). Another website, Illinois Veterans' Home (external link), gives a brief History and Facility Description.

Copies of records were received from the Illinois Archives, Database of Soldiers' and Sailors' Home Residents (1887-1916) (external link) for the veterans that lived in Clinton County at the time they entered the Home. We spelled the names here as they are spelled in the Quincy data base. You can download and print any of these records or you can order copies from the Archives. If you have questions, Contact Us.
