Elmon Greely

Elmon Greely, also known as "Elmo," was born in 1831.

Elmon was 30 years old and probably living in the vicinity of Hastings, Barry County (or perhaps in Ionia County), Michigan, when he enlisted in the Hastings Rifle Company in April of 1861. The company was disbanded shortly after it arrived in Grand Rapids and its members distributed to other companies of the Third Michigan infantry then forming at Cantonment Anderson just south of the city, and Elmon eventually enlisted in Company E on May 13, 1861.

He was killed in action on May 31, 1862, at Fair Oaks, Virginia, and presumably buried among the unknown soldiers in Seven Pines National Cemetery.

No pension seems to be available.
