I checked the Iowa Roster for Francis M. Stanfield, and perhaps you already have this
information. Born in Iowa County, he was 17 when he enlisted with Co. E, 8th Iowa
Volunteer Infantry. He enlisted in Iowa County on Oct. 25, 1864, and mustered out almost
a year later, on Oct. 24, 1865, at Montgomery, Alabama.
An Augustus Stanfield served in the same company and regiment as Francis. A Martin V.
Stanfield also shows up with Co. E, 8th Iowa, but was rejected by the Mustering Officer
(Sept. 4, 1861). No reason given, but could have been health or even age related.
I'm not sure what the numbers indicated that you included but I can see what I can
