Delaware County's Civil War Soldiers List

This is very much a work in progress. It comes from a compilation by Shirley Houck and other staff at the Delaware County Clerk's office of soldiers enumerated in the 1865 New York State Census. (Note: The column 'census district' only applies to those names pulled from the 1865 census.) DCHA Curator Angela Gaffney added a number of names found in Munsell's History of Delaware County, New York but not on the 1865 census. DCHA Archivist Ray LaFever has collected other names while several people have come forward with further names and/or suggested corrections. We working on a project at DCHA to match up this list with the Town Clerk registers of soldiers, also created in 1865. As of this date, we are about 1/3 of the way through this review.

Currently, the list has 2,523 names. We very much welcome any additions or corrections to the list. If you have any back-up documentation, that would be much appreciated. If not, we will go to several sources to verify the soldier's service. Contact us at (607) 746-3849 or e-mail us at: with any information about soldiers who may be missing from this list.
