Just a shot in the dark guess.....BUT, COULD he have served with a different unit and trasnferred in as Sgt??....If you have his war record, you may have specified his record for the 154th, and as a result, you were only sent info for his service in the 154th.....I had this happen when I sent for a Confederate War record for someone in an artillery unit, only to find out that the person I was looking for had prior service in an infantry unit, and all I got was the artillery record....I had to seperately send for the prior infantry service record...

As to your ancestor, see
where it says the following: WEIBLE, George

1st Serg.

Padua (Place of Residence)

Feb 17, 1865

Died at Millstadt, Ill, Jun 25, 1865

Since the Regiment was in Nashville at the time of his death, I'd say he was sent back to Illinois, where he died...

On Facebook, check out:
I bet you may get some questions answered there. If there are any photos of troops in uniform, that will also help you.

Good luck!!
Hope I've helped!!
