CIVIL WAR RECORDS OF JEFFERSON COUNTY,
TOWN OF LYME



In 1865, NY State Bureau of Military Record required each town clerk to make 
a report of the service personnel serving in the Civil War from his town.  
The suggestions, reproduced below, explain the nature of each entry.  
The originals should be kept by each township, but some have disappeared 
over the years.  All the towns, except Pamelia, are recorded on microfilm at 
the New York State Archives.  The Town of Lyme, from that microfilm, has been 
deciphered and committed to electronic data by Karen Ellsworth, a volunteer 
who has done a marvelous job. 

We are negotiating for hard copy of more towns, and will present them as we 
get them.  

SUGGESTIONS IN REGARD TO PREPARING THE RECORD.

STATE OF NEW YORK.
     BUREAU OF MILITARY RECORD,
  Albany, August 10th, 1865.

TO THE TOWN CLERK:

It is desirable that the following suggestions be particularly observed in 
preparing the record.

I. The MIDDLE name, if any, as well as the FIRST name of each Officer, Soldier 
or Seaman, should be written in full.

II. The PRESENT rank refers to rank now held in the service, or if out of 
service, to rank at the date of muster, or at the time of death, if deceased.

III. The Regiment and Company refer to the regiment and company which the 
party ENTERED at the time he was CREDITED to the QUOTA of YOUR TOWN.

IV. In giving amount of relief granted to family, the weekly or monthly rate, 
if so paid, or if paid by ?? Board, the gross sum may be given.

V. The given name of father and the MAIDEN name of mother are desired.

VI. The promotions, only so far as they may be known to you, are expected; 
but the more important facts, relating to service, to death and burial, 
(if deceased,) to being wounded, (if at any time wounded,) or, if taken 
prisoner, to that event, are required.

VII. The book should be paged by you after the fourth, which is already paged.

VIII. An Index is furnished at the end of the book, in which you are desired 
to write all the names ALPHABETICALLY, (two columns of names to a page, 
to save space,) of Officers, Soldiers, and Seamen, embraced in the ??.

The names and pages only are desired in the Index, thus: "Brown, Jeremiah, 5,"
On the last sheet of the book, before the Index, are blanks for the record of 
Officers and Seamen from your town.  With a view to being clearly understood 
three examples of record are given on the second and third pages below.

That no individual shall be omitted from the list of volunteers from your town, 
it is desired that a separate page be devoted to those who, though living 
in your town, have enlisted and been credited elsewhere.
                                   Respectfully yours,

                                   Lockwood L. Doty    

For ease in downloading, the list has been arbitrarily divided into 13 parts 
or pages.  The names are in the order found on the original town clerk's list.  
The hyperlinks (clicks) in the index will take you to the page in which the 
chosen name is found.  Either scroll down through that page, or use your 
computer's finding aid to reach the name.
