Do you have the info about John Henry Justice from the Find a Grave database? I've copied it here in case you don't, though I'm not sure if it'll help answer your question:
"Birth: Aug. 11, 1838,,Putnam County,Indiana, USA
Death: Dec. 30, 1906,Saint Bernice, Vermillion County, Indiana, USA

John Henry was the son of Hiram Justice and Ann/Emily Vest. He was 1st married to Sarah Kelley in 1860. Sometime after 1870 she died and he remarried to Mary Webster in 1873.

John Henry enlisted in the Civil War on 21 Dec 1861 in Co. I, 40th IN INF. He mustered out on 21 Dec 1865. At the Battle of Mission Ridge in Nov 1863 he was slightly wounded in the arm. On 31 Jan 1864 he was discharged due to injury at Chattanooga, TN, but then re enlisted the next day. On 14 May 1864 at General Sherman's Atlanta Campaign in GA he was carried off the battlefield due to rheumatism in the hips and knees and chronic diarrhea due to exposure. In June the same year he was admitted to the hospital for a back injury resulting from a fall.

Eventually he died of rheumatism of the heart and lived with the effects from the exposure the rest of his life. "
