*This one?
A Civil War pension index card listed 22 June 1897 as the date of death for Walter O. Carpenter, who served in Co. F, 146th IL Infantry.

Was this Clarence Carpenter, living in Rhode Island, but born in Creston, Iowa, the son of Walter and Sarah?  I would say it's almost a certainty since he named his son Sturgis, after his grandfather, Sturgis Phinney Carpenter.
