J. F. St. Vollman
Co. F
20 Ark Inf
Sep 12, 1862
(Reported as Sep 20, 1862)

This marker may be that of Sergeant J. F. St. Vollman, 20th Ark Inf, Co. F.

The cards of his compiled service record are filed with "S." T. but he is also seen as "F." T. His surname is seen spelled Vollman, Volman, and Volkman.

According to the company muster roll report for 3 Mar to 2 May 1862, he enlisted in March of 1862 in Perryville, Ark., for a period of one year in the King's Regiment, Arkansas Inf, which soon became the 22nd Reg Ark Inf. That regiment in May 1862 became the 20th Ark Inf.

Until 15 May 1862, he was 5th Sergeant. On the Jul & Aug 1862 muster roll report, St. Vollman is "absent, sick,"  which may explain his rank change to private.

On the Sep & Oct 1862 report, still ranked as a private, "F." T. St. Volman  is reported, "Died September 20th."

This card portion above from his compiled service record illustrates the various ways this soldier's name is spelled.

Though the last card we have for him in his compiled service record ranks him as a private, here he is shown as entering the service as a sergeant and leaving as a sergeant.
