Civil War Veterans Who Later Settled In Lake County

Since Lake County was not settled until 1870, it did not actively participate in the War Between the States. Many veterans did settle here later. Their reasons included free land, a fresh chance to make a better life, and hope of leaving the horrors of war behind them.

This list is by no means complete. These are just the names we have been able to identify so far.
