127th New York Infantry
127thNewYork.com is a non-commercial Website dedicated to preserving the history of the 127th New York Infantry and the men who served. It was a Civil War Regiment raised on Long Island, and in Brooklyn and New York. Included on the page is a section about Civil War Veteran Burial sites, as well as a database containing the names of over 1,350 veterans.
Kevin Frye, a Volunteer Researcher at
Andersonville Civil War Prison in Andersonville, Georgia, has
graciously offered to do FREE LOOKUPS for those who are searching
for their ancestors held prisoner at the Andersonville facility.
Mr. Frye's message...
There are more than 32,000 prisoners on record from the Union, and quite a few who were held prisoner here as Union regiments from Confederate states. There are also nearly 13,000 marked graves of those who died here. My focus is dedicated to ALL of those held prisoner during this war, on both sides as well as all Americans who gave their freedoms for those that we enjoy today.
My sources of research are as follows: There are 2 online databases to do lookups.....One by name...one by Company and Regiment. I also have a copy of the Dorence Atwater Death list which has the names and grave numbers of 12,960 graves with only 460 marked as " UNKNOWN " This along with a CD I have which contains 34,000 names of the 45,000 who were imprisoned there which helps me find prisoner records because of misspellings of the names or alternate names. I also have the continued update database which is dated July 19, 2002. I visit the prison site every couple of weeks and have access to the onsite databases as well as the physical files.
Please visit my website dedicated to those Americans who were imprisoned and died in captivity while in the service to our country.
