16th NY Artillery, Companies F and H

Roster of Montgomery County Members of Companies F and H


From "The History of Montgomery and Fulton Counties" by F.W. Beers

Rex and I extend our thanks to Maggie for her assistance in providing us with this great material. Beers' book was reprinted several years ago by Heart of the Lakes Publishing Company. If you are interested in a reprint of the original 1878 book contact Mr. Walt Steesy at HLP at (607)532-4997, fax him at (607) 532-4686 or email him at HLP books@aol.com for further information.



More specific information about this regiment comes from "The History of Montgomery County" by Washington Frothingham, published in 1892 in Syracuse, NY by D. Mason & Co, Publishers and Printers.

"On the 19th of June, 1863, Col. Joseph J. Morrison was authorized by the war department to recruit an artillery regiment, which, when organized in the city of New York, was given the above designation. Companies F and H, to which the towns of Canajoharie, Minden and St. Johnsville contributed about thirty-five men, were mustered into service at Elmira. The Sixteenth left the state by detachments, the local companies in January, 1864. The regiment served as heavy artillery and infantry at Fortress Monroe, Yorktown and Gloucester Point, but was divided and sent on detached service during the greater part of 1864 and 1865. Company F, in which were several recruits from Canajoharie and St. Johnsville, was one of six companies that volunteered to General Butler to build the Dutch Gap canal, which work was begun August 9, 1864. The local troops, however, were withdrawn from this work after ten days. In July, 1865, the Sixteenth was united and commanded by Colonel Morrison. It was honorably discharged and mustered out of service August 31, 1865, at Washington."

Note: In the listing below I have placed information which differs from that in Beers' 1878 book under the man's name.
