Troops Furnished By The Town of Adams, New York, For Service During the War of the Rebellion, 1861-1865 ix


With a foreword by Sue Herse, Town of Adams Historian. In 1865 the author's Great-Great Grandfather, A. E. Cooley, Esq. (the circuit court judge for Jefferson County and Town Clerk for the Town of Adams, NY), prepared a ledger for the State of New York's Bureau of Military Records of volunteers who enlisted into the Union forces from the Town of Adams, Jefferson County, NY. The current volume, prepared in the year 2000 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Town of Adams, is a transcript of all the legible information contained in the original ledger - "an important new resource for those persons interested in the impact of the Civil War on the North Country as well as those genealogists researching family connections or ancestors from the Adams, New York area." Records are grouped under "Residents of Town Credited on Quota," "Residents of Town Not Credited on Quota," and "Record of Officers & Sailors in the Naval Service," then listed by surname. Entries contain (as available): full name, place of residence, date and place of birth, mustered-in date, rank and regiment, race, marital status, names of parents, occupation, military actions, mustered-out date, date and place of death, and place of burial. A full name index adds to the value of this work.
