Roster of the Field, Staff,  Line Officers, and Musicians, Sergeants, Corporals


           The following presents a complete Roster of the Field, Staff and line officers of the Eighty-First Regiment, New York State Volunteer Infantry (Second Oswego Regiment) after its consolidation with the Mohawk Rife Regiment, on the 10th day of February, 1862 and as it left the barracks, at Albany, for the seat of war, on the 21st day of February following. Also, a complete Roster of all the enlisted men that ever belonged to the Regiment, as far as can be ascertained from the muster rolls, and enlistment papers now on file in the Adjutant General’s office. It is stated that some mustering officers neglected to forward their muster rolls and did not make returns to this office, as they should have done. In case any names of enlisted men who belonged to the Regiment should not appear on this Roster, the above, it is hoped, will be sufficient explanation for such omissions. It has been the Authors desire to furnish a complete muster of the officers and men, to be engrossed in the History of the Regiment, on which he has spent much time in research.
            Non commissioned Staff, Musicians, Sergeants and Corporals will be found under their respective heads, as far as the records show, and the Privates in alphabetical order.

This information was generously contributed by Bill Young, who proudly states that he has 2 g-uncles that served in the Civil War, one in the 81st NY, and the other in the 184th NY, both from Oswego County.  Bill has many ancestors from Oswego, and would love to share information.  He is researching the following surnames:  CHAPPELL, HARRIS, DION ( CANADA), YOUNG, MALLETTE / MALLET(CANADA), BRANAGAN. Bill has been trying, without success, to locate where his 2G-grandfather BRANAGAN was buried in Oswego, and if anyone has information on this, please contact him at Scout10520@aol.com
