This database gives records of Civil War infantrymen from southeastern New York (79th and 80th infantry units). It lists each person's name, age, date and place of enlistment, and outcome of service. There is also a "Comments" section that lists the final entry on the serviceman's record. Some of the men in the database were from Pennsylvania; they temporarily served with the 79th infantry from January to April 1864, and are therefore included with the infantry unit's records.

Obituary generously donated by Gail Cramer, Northville Historian. Pg. 5 VanArnam Scrapbook:
"Washington Dunham died at his home in this village yesterday morning at 5 o'clock after an illness which has confined him to his home for four months. His trouble has been mostly heart difficulty. He had reached the age of 70 last January, and for a man so well advanced in years was very active in his affairs. He enlisted in the Civil War Sept. 6, 1864, in Company D, 4th N. Y. Vols., and served his country well until the close of the war. He was a member of Matherson post, G.A.R. He was a member of no church, but was an attendant of the Methodist Church. He leaves his widow, one daughter, Mrs. Ed Smith of Gloversville, two sisters, Mrs. Nancy Morrison of Gloversville; Mrs. Jennie Hall of Cadillac, Mich., two brothers, Nelson of Batchellerville and William of Wells. The funeral will be held Friday afternoon at his home, corner of Washington and First streets, and Rev. Geo. K. Frasier, pastor of the Presbyterian church also an honorary member of the post of which deceased was a member, will have charge of the services, assisted by Rev. John H. Clark of the Methodist church. Matherson Post will attend in a body and will conduct its ritual services at the grave if the weather will permit; if not, at the home at the conclusion of the regular services. Interment will be made in Prospect Hill Cemetery in this village."
