Death of another Monroe Soldier

We regret to learn of the death of another Monroe soldier. Corporal J.L. Alexander of the 1st Iowa Battery, died in hospital at Milliken’s Bend on the 22d of May, of congestive fever. He leaves a wife and one small child in this city. A letter from the Commandant of the battery, announcing his death speaks of him as a brave and good soldier having the confidence and esteem of his officers and fellow soldiers and that his death is sincerely regretted by them. Corporal Alexander was in the 29th year of his age. He formerly resided in Ypsilanti, where he was engaged in the livery business.
