I've searched this forum and am looking for a database listing Civil War Marines, but there doesn't seem to be anything available.
Specifically, I'm looking for information an a man named Davis Page Smith. He was from Pennsylvania, born in 1839 and died in 1916. He's buried in Chillicothe, IL and his tombstone has the following inscribed on it: Davis Page Smith, Marine, Co H 42, 1839-1916.
In 1880 he was living in PA with a wife and two children. At some point he moved to Illinois.
I believe the family has ordered military records from the archives but that will take a while to get to them.
Any help in locating a database that give more than we have a the moment would be appreciated.
