Soldier Data for Officers and Enlisted Soldiers of the 100th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry
1) ROUNDHEAD OFFICERS (LISTED BY COMPANY AND RANK WITH FIRST NAME OF SOLDIER FOLLOWED BY LAST NAME--SAME WAY BATES LISTED THE SOLDIERS)
2) ROUNDHEAD ENLISTED (ALPHABETICAL BY LAST NAME)
From the websmith, David L. Welch, August 31, 2011, updated November 2, 2014:
In honor of the majority of initial veterans of the 100th PA that enlisted on this date 150 years ago, I post these interactive data spreadsheets for descendants, Civil War historians and other friends of the Roundheads. Because of the volume of information and that I don't have this information accessible within an on-line database, I have re-organized the information since August 2011 such that there are TWO tables for 'Officers' (Co A through E; Co. F through M with Field & Staff) and there will be multiple tables for 'Enlisted' personnel, alphabetical by last name. There is still much to add, it is a work in progress and the data for each soldier is not guaranteed but a place to embark on an adventure to finding the history of these brave and honorable men.
If there is anyone out there that is willing to help me put this information into an on-line relational database specific to the Roundhead Regiment and has the technical know how, I would love to do this at some point but this is my starting point. There are hundreds of pieces of information here to discover inside and outside of the tables via interactive hyperlinks. More information will be added over the remainder of the 150th anniverary sequicentennial commemoration of the American Civil War, 1861-1865.
A big thank you to Tami McConahy for transcribing many soldier pension card data is in order. Also, I would like to thank Jeff Alborn for his numerous Roundhead gravestone images that he has photographed of cemeteries in Lawrence County. Also thanks to professional genealogist Kate Eakmon, of History and Heritage LLC, for giving me additional ideas to incorporate into the tables such as links to free scanned documents such as veteran and pension cards available from various internet sources--these will be added over time.
This information has been compiled from a variety of sources and links soldiers to images, biographies, letters/diaries, gravesites/gravestones, personal data (age at enlistment, height, hair color, etc.), birthdate, deathdate, newspaper articles (obituaries, marriage announcements, reunions, wartime correspondence)
