Civil War Muster-In Rolls

Copy provided by the Delaware County Clerk's Office, Delhi, NY, February 10, 1997

Delaware County men and boys served in many military units during the Civil War. Records of such service can be found in Schedules III, IV and VII in the 1865 State Census; the 1865 State Statistical Census; Soldier's Discharges, Volumes 1-111; and Munsell's "History of Delaware County, New York," pages 79-100; and the Civil War Muster-In Rolls.

The complete title of the last mentioned resource is "A Record of the Commissioned Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and Privates, of the Regiments which were Organized in the State of New York and called into the Service of the United States to Assist in Suppressing the Rebellion Caused by the Secession of Some of the Southern States from the Union, A.D. 1861, as taken from the Muster-In Rolls on file in the Adjutant-General's Office, State of New York". This is an 8 volume set of books (no Table of Contents or Index) which was distributed to the Counties of the State. These Rolls contain only the names of the persons at the time the particular unit was mustered-into Federal Service. Names of persons, who joined the units at later dates, or transferred into them, are not included.

Records of the units, containing a significant number from Delaware County, are abstracted below. Research into African-Americans serving from this County is on-going. Photocopies of the records of these units, made from the Rolls and the typed lists are available from the Delaware County Clerk's Office. Please send SASE for listing and costs.
