We're very pleased to present another work created and donated to our site by Charles Shaw. The listings below represent an incredible amount of dedication and work on his part over a long period of time. Charles' comments below give insight into the type of research, resources and judgement he used to create this very special list.

"These records are found in the several volumes of "New York State Adjutant General Reports". It should be noted that these reports are hardly error free, but they are among some of the few sources available for this type of research. I have used them for several years and have learned to weed out some of the records as stated. For instance: I have omitted many names that are noted "no further record", although sometimes these men's names appear in the volumes of "Roll of Honor" by the US QM Dept. as buried in National Cemeteries. The same can be said of the "deserted" notation - often these men did not desert, but were sick or missing and this term seems to me as an easy way to dispose of them from additional morning reports of co. clerks. Having said this I can say that they still are the best or, in some cases, the only source at our disposal."

"With my wife's help, I have been indexing NY State cemeteries since 1986 and have acquired a large number of Civil War Vets. burial sites. We were in Wayne Co. last year and checked several cems. Later, after checking your web site, I became very impressed with the cemetery lists and the ease of reading them. The info found in ( ) is from my own records."
