The information for this particular regiment has come from two sources.
Thanks to Karen Souhrada for helping to combine information from both of them. 

The first source is:

Crumrine, Boyd, "History of Washington County, Pennsylvania with Biographical Sketches" (Philadelphia: L. H. Everts & Co., 1882), pp 355-362 in a section entitled "War of the Rebellion".

The second source is:

Ferrar, Samuel Clarke, "The Twenty-Second Pennsylvania Cavalry--- and the Ringgold Battalion 1861-1865"; published 1911, under the auspices of the Twenty-Second Pennsylvania Ringgold Cavalry Association. Regimental rosters found on page 468-531.

Where appropriate in the lists below, remarks found between parentheses () will denote notes or corrections to Crumrine's material. Remarks found between braces {} will denote additional information from Farrar's material.
