Roster of the Private's

This is from a book about the history of the 81st NY, which includes a roster, dated 1866, by Bartholomew S. DeForest, titled "Random sketches and wondering thoughts; or what I saw in camp, on the march, the bivouac, the battle field etc.  Many thanks to contributor, Bill Young, who has been diligently working on this project and is now transcribing the names of the privates.  This will be an ongoing project.  For easier browsing, the names are listed in alphabetical order.

For further information on any of the names, please contact the local Historical Society or Town Historian.  Military records can also be ordered from the .  For a history on the 81st NY, see the Regimental History page.

Note from Bill: The book was in very poor shape. The paper flaked and easily tore. Very unusual for a book of this nature to actually fall apart.  There are a few places where the paper flaked and could not be copied. This is shown by -? Marks, or in the name of the individual.

*Note: D. C. Calkins.  I recently came across an article in the newsletter, "The Drumbeat",  published by The Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War 1861 - 1865, Vol 15 Nu. 41, by Judy Brown, Tent #14, Dept. of Michigan, about an abandoned cemetery in Oscoda County, Michigan.  All the graves there were re-interred to a new cemetery about 1926, except for one grave, that of a civil war veteran, whose grave stone read, Artifr - D. C. Calkins - Co. D. 50 N.Y. Engrs.  No one really knows why he was the only one left there, and several local newspaper articles were written, in hopes that someone would be able to identify him.  A great granddaughter saw one of the articles, and contacted the editor of the paper, identifying him as Daniel C. Calkins, enlisted at age 21, in Elmira, Co. F of the 81st NY. Vol., and who was loaned out to the 50th NY Engineers for most of his enlistment.  Arrangements were subsequently made to have him reburied in a family plot with his son-in-law and two grandchildren in the "new" Elmer Township Cemetery near Mio, Michigan.  Almost 500 people attended the Civil War Ceremony on May 29, 1999, including members of the Michigan DUVCW, SUVCW, American Legion, and representatives from the New York Dept. SUVCW. Laura Perkins.
