Turns out this was not only the site of Peabody's HQ but the Chicago Daily Tribune of 28 APR 1862 front page column one indicates Colonel Peabody's body was initially buried "under his tent" (before being exhumed and relocated to  Springfield Massachusetts) see https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn84031490/1862-04-28/ed-1/seq-1/#date1=1862&sort=date&date2=1862&words=Everett&language=&sequence=0&lccn=&index=17&state=Illinois&rows=20&ortext=&proxtext=Everett&year=&phrasetext=&andtext=&proxValue=&dateFilterType=yearRange&page=3 .
