Another CW Vet passed away on this day

David Krausgrill was born to Phillip Krasugrill and Mary Keller on Jan 2, 1848 in Harrison County Kentucky. At the age of 16 he enlisted into the 13th Indiana Cav on April 2, 1864 and mustered out on November 18th 1865. It should be noted he was 1 of three 3 brothers that entered the war. 2 of his older brothers, Conrad and George Washington Krausgrill, enlisted in the 38th Infantry Company E, September 18th 1861 and both remained in the service until July 15th 1865. Conrad was a Wagoner and George entered as a Private but when discharged was a Sgt.

His time after the service is listed below in a BIO from Posey County. His time after 1874 is listed below that.

History of Posey County Indiana, The Goodspeed Publishing Co., Chicago, 1886. Reprinted by Unigraphic, Inc., Evansville, IN 1967 [Harrison Co] DR. DAVID KRAUSGRILL was born January 2, 1848, in Harrison County, Ky., son of Philip and Mary (Keller) Krausgrill. He was reared and educated in his native county, and when sixteen years old enlisted in the army in the Thirteenth Indiana Cavalry, serving from March 14, 1864, to December 4, 1865. After his return from the war he attended school at Orleans, Ind., for three years, and followed the occupation of teaching for four subsequent years. He then commenced the study of medicine and entered college at Cincinnati, Ohio, graduating from the medical college of that State in 1879. He began, however, the practice of medicine in 1873 in Francisco, Gibson Co., Ind., and two years later moved to Wadesville, where he has ever since successfully practiced his profession. He married Miss Linnie Barber, October 7, 1874. To their union three children were born: Ernst, Clyde and Emmett. The Doctor is a member of the A.O.U.W. and Masonic fraternities. Politically he is a Democrat and a leader of his party, and is one of the most successful physicians in that section of the county.

Though use of Census information, we know that David and his family moved to Chesterton Indiana sometime after 1880 and before 1900.

He had a very successful practice in Chesterton, settleing in and calling this their new home. He was active Mason in the community and well known for that. Not only was David a Physician and Surgeon, he also had a Drug store which also included toiletries,and was a dealer in Paint, and Wallpaper supplies.

In 1889, he applied for his Invalid Pension having received a certificate no of 602.222,

David is Interned at Chesterton Cemetery Indiana.

It is not known where his wife is buried at the time of this blog. As one can see his name is the only one listed on the Family Stone. No records for her can be found on Find a Grave- we do know from her death certificate that she passed away in 1936 in Princeton IN. It should also be mentioned that David's Death Certificate can not be found- It is possible that a transcription error occurred or his name was misspelled at the time of his death.
