CIVIL WAR ENLISTEES
WAYNE COUNTY, NY
Below is a transcription of the original handwritten Town Supervisor's list of all men whose enlistments were credited to the Town of Ontario as of July 2, 1862. As this is early in the War, it won't include men who may have enlisted between July 3, 1862 and April 9, 1865. All names are spelled exactly as on the original document. The original document lists men who enlisted in three different regiments. As this is an original piece of historical documentation, we will NOT be adding your relative or later recruits to the three regiments to this page. We have no way of determining if the men stayed with these regiments, transferred to others, or survived the War. Thank you to the Office of the County Historian of Wayne County, NY.
