Civil War Deaths
as reported in the
1865 New York State Census
Some of the pages were not in good condition,
handwriting was at times extremely hard to read,
therefore, there are probably mistakes, sometimes the enumerator
spelled the names wrongly but they are transcribed as he
spelled them.  Always refer to the source document for
accuracy, this should be used only a research tool.
