Steve to Norman Hole2017-01-17 11:49:57Hi Norman....I couldn't find much more information on James in the Pennsylvania State Archives. Have you tried Ancestry.com ? That site has shipping data for many ports and James might be listed there. Also, that site has other information that may help. Have you tried the U.S. Archives ? Good luck in your search.
Norman Hole2017-01-15 15:47:15Hi Steve. great site.James Mckeogh (Mckeough) shown on this site as M'keogh wounded at Gaines Mill was my gr gr grandfather's brother. I've found a number of records to evidence this. He was born in Ireland and was a coal miner in county Durham England emigrating to the US sometime between 1854 and 1859. I'm trying to find a record of his death to see if it gives any clues to his origins in Ireland. He doesn't appear on any census but I have found 2 of his children in 1870 in Pennsylvania and another who appears to be born there in 1859 who is mentioned on his pension record and who died in a home for civil war wives. Any ideas where I can search next?
Steve to Keith Moylan2017-01-09 23:36:27Hi Keith.....thanks for letting me know about the other spelling of your second great grandfather. I'll add a note to his record the next time I update the database. Have you checked the 53rd Regimental history or the PA State Archives?
Keith Moylan2017-01-06 17:11:12Steve, This is a great site. I searched for my 2nd great grandfather who was a Sgt and served with the Pa 53rd Regiment B Co. I noticed his name was misspelled as Moylin. Is there any other information you may have on him Thanks
Steve M.2016-11-14 13:39:25The roster of the 78th New York Volunteer Infantry has been added to the database. Stephen Beebe's record has been edited too.
Steve M. to Steve Beebe2016-10-11 10:23:37I'll fix the spelling the next time I update the database. Thanks for the information on Stephen Hamilton Beebe.

Alyce Barry2016-09-22 12:19:02Dear Steve Maczuga, My g-g-grandfather, John Barry, fought in the Civil War, and his 4 children grew up in a Soldier's Home in Uniontown, PA. He presumably died between June 1869 and March 1870 because his 4th child, my g-grandfather, appears in the US Census as born March 1870, son of John Barry of Ireland and Emma of Ohio. The last time I devoted time to family geneaology was in the 1980s before the computer era, and I stopped because I couldn't find any further record of John. Today I found the pa-roots.com website and found quite a few John Barrys. I'm writing to ask if you might know of any resources that would help me figure out (a) if a veteran's children went to Uniontown, did it mean he fought in a PA regiment, and (b) if any documents have become available that would help me connect dots between one of these John Barrys in PA regiments to the man whose children went to Uniontown?
Steve2016-09-19 15:28:25The roster of the 125th Regiment, New York Volunteer Infantry has been added to the database.
Steve Maczuga to Steve Painter2016-07-18 13:14:34Thank you.
Steven Painter2016-07-18 01:27:01Steve, in looking through this site for an ancestor I noticed an error in the spelling of the last name which made my search rather difficult. Specifically, if you search the name "Humnmel" you get exactly two names. One of which, John, is my 2nd great grandfather. There should be no "n" in the name. The name "Hummel" is a german word meaning, "bumblebee," and is also a common german last name, while the word/name "humnmel" doesn't exist. Comparatively, there are dozens of "Hummels" in the regiment rolls from PA. Since "m" and "n" are juxtaposed on a keyboard, I'm assuming this is a typo, especially since the name is spelled correctly on the Gettysburg monument also on this site. I would appreciate if you could correct this typo and suggest that you also do this for the second "Humnmel" (Samuel) as that is certainly also a typo. Best Regards, Steve Painter 1paints1@gmail.com
Steve to Donna Ewald2016-06-13 15:02:08Thank you for finding a missing link. The 17th is now linked up on my page of regiments on the upper level of the Pennsylvania Monument at Gettysburg. George's name (or someone close to his spelling) does indeed appear to have been removed from the monument. Perhaps George was re-assigned to another post or ill during the battle of Gettysburg. Perhaps the NPS at Gettysburg could help you with that information.
Donna Ewald2016-06-13 12:02:08When I visited Gettysburg several years ago I went to the Pa State Monument and looked for my great-great grandfather George B Snively. He was from Franklin Co, Shady Grove, Pa, a couple of miles away. He was at Gettysburg. He was in the 17th Reg, PA Cav (162nd Volunteers), from Oct 18, 1862 to Aug 7, 1865. Upon finding the correct panel, much to my horror, I saw his name was scratched off the monument. At least I think it was his name since it was right where it would have been alphabetically. I was so happy to see your website and check my memory. However, the 17th Regiment of Cavalry does not seem to be on your website. It was also called the 2nd Pa Prov Cavalry, but I can't find that either. Is there a way to see that panel? His ID is 210021. I have his ceremonial discharge and he is listed as fighting at Gettysburg July 3, 1863. Thanks for any help!
