A List of Pelham Residents Who Served the Union During the Civil War

Records of early Memorial Day commemorations in the files of The Office of The Historian of The Town of Pelham include references to Pelham residents who served their country during the Civil War. Today's Blog posting provides the list and, for each, adds information about the serviceman's unit where it can be determined. Please note that no effort yet has been made to determine the accuracy of this information (including the spelling of the names below as they appeared in various records including old Memorial Day programs).

William Dorrance Beach

Samuel D. Bertine

William Dally - Company D, 133rd Infantry Regiment New York
Patrick J. Gleason

James C. Hazen

William P. Hibler

John T. Logan

David Lyon

Samuel E. Lyon

William Mercer

Peter McLaughlin

William H. Valentine - Company D, 5th Veteran Infantry Regiment New York

Charles A. Walker

Over the next few months I will be working to confirm this information and to learn more about these Pelham residents said to have died during service to their country during the Civil War.
