Civil War Veterans Buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Fabius, New York

For the core data on which the following table is based, I am indebted to Virginia Cameron, the Village Historian of Fabius, (P.O. Box #117, Fabius, NY, 13063, 315-683-9446), and to Sandra K. Walling. Virginia compiled the original list, and Sandra thoughtfully made a copy available to me. Sandra and I have made (and are still working on) several additions and corrections. Virginia's data is in black font, while our additions/corrections are presented in a light gray color and enclosed in square brackets. Sandra's information has been taken from the AGO muster rolls on My material has come mostly from the AGO muster rolls on a CD that is part of Sierra's Generations Family Tree, version 5.2. I have attempted to identify and appropriately credit data not from either of these two sources. If you detect any obvious errors or have any information to add, please drop me a note.

July 12, 2002 I received an email from Mary Oree Kolodziej of Minoa, NY, a great-granddaughter of William Albert Morgan. In it she said:

. . . WILLIAM ALBERT MORGAN was my great-grandfather. I have considerable information on him. You may want to add some of the following:
He was born 1 July 1844 in Tully and enlisted there on 23 August 1861 as a Private. He was 18 years old. (This per the 1865 Record of the Town of Tully, County of Onondaga, Officers, Sailors & Seaman composing quotas of the troops furnished to the United State by the Town of Tully, page 13.) Dorothy Preston of the Tully Area Historical Society showed me this book.
On 27 September 1861 he mustered into Co. "A", 10th NY Cavalry.
He re-enlisted on 31 December 1863.
He mustered out on 26 June 1865 at Cloud's Mills, VA.
He was promoted to Blacksmith and Carriage Maker on 15 August 1862.
9 June 1863 he was injured in a cavalry charge at Brandy Station, VA. The brigade, commanded by Gen. Kilpatrick, was charging a battery and Stewart's Headquarters. There was a wall fence in the way, and Wm. Albert's horse fell, throwing him off. He was not able to leave the battle area until the last of July, when he went to a Hospital in Frederick City, MD.

I know he returned home and set up a blacksmith & carriage making shop, first in Taylor, Cortland Co. and then in Preble, Cortland Co. I have his pension applications, etc., and I am forwarding a copy of them, together with his family tree, to the Onondaga Historical Association and the Tully Area Historical Society.

Thanks for the opportunity to add to his file information. Use whatever you think is appropriate.
