Sergeant John Dono(g)hue was admitted to Harper Hospital in Detroit on July 18, 1865, two days after Benjamin W Ellison was admitted there.

I am still transcribing the Harper Hospital records and these are being published in the Detroit Society for Genealogical Research magazine (see last two issues with more to come).
