Montgomery County Soldiers Serving in Other Civil War Regiments


From "The History of Montgomery and Fulton Counties" by F.W. Beers, 1878

Many thanks to Maggie Coletta 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.

"The following smaller representations in various regiments and companies close our record of the brave men from Montgomery who fought and suffered to keep the nation whole. " (Beers , 1878)



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.

IN OTHER COMMANDS

"It cannot be safely asserted that the foregoing rolls include the names of all the Montgomery county volunteers in service during the war of 1861-65. There were many men who left the county and enlisted in companies formed in other parts of the state, and were not, therefore, credited to their own town. The names of some of these have been obtained, but they are classified under the heading adopted above."

Note: In the listing below I have noted information which differs from that in Beers' 1878 book under the man's name. Men marked by the star * are new listings in the Frothingham book. Also, there is a discrepancy between Battery Two and Battery 12 - both have the same men! Can anyone advise as to what was the correct regimental number?
