CIVIL WAR VETERANS FROM PORTAGE COUNTY

Surnames R - U

A - C          D - G          H - L          M - P          V - Z

(Ed. Note: Published in sections in the SPAGS newsletter, "Pedigree Pointers," October 1982 through Winter 1984. The source: Roster of Wisconsin Volunteers, War of the Rebellion, 1861-1865 . Compiled by authority of the Legislature, under the direction of Jeremiah M. Rusk, governor, and Chandler P. Chapman, adjutant general. Publisher: Madison, Democrat printing co., state printers, 1886. 2 vol.)

Starting with this issue I will be listing alphabetically those men from Portage County who fought in the Civil War. I got the names from going through the two volumes of Rusk & Chap­man's ROSTER OF WISCONSIN VOLUNTEERS page by page. I am sure that there are errors even though I have tried to be as thorough as possible.

Rusk & Chapman did not differentiate between the town­ship of Sharon and the village of Sharon in southern Wisconsin. The same is true for the township of Belmont and the village of Belmont in southern Wisconsin. (Malcolm) Rosholt in OUR COUNTY, OUR STORY, states that Jordan did not have a post office until 1864. I have listed men from Jordan and do not know if there was another town by that name in the state or not. Therefore, for men listed from Belmont, Jordan, and Sharon, they possibly may not have been from Portage County.

I also have included men who came from Knowlton even though it is in Marathon County. It is so close to the border that I felt it should be included.

The other thing to remember is that these are men who enlisted or were drafted from Portage County. It does not include the names of men who fought in the war and settled in Portage County after­wards. And these men did not necessarily live here after the war.
