Since this Edmund Newsome isn't an ancestor of yours, I won't spend a lot of time digging into his life. However, a few things just pop right out and you might be interested in seeing them.
First of all, he died in 1895. Here is where he ended up.

It turns out that he was also an author:
He wrote about his experiences in the war (EXPERIENCE IN THE WAR OF THE GREAT REBELLION). He also wrote: HISTORICAL SKETCHES OF JACKSON COUNTY, IL. So, he was into history, too. You can even order the books if you are curious.
