Civil War Soldiers of Perinton & Fairport

This list is a work-in-progress.  Due to its larger geographical size, Perinton has many more soldiers than Pittsford.  When I research the soldiers, names are pulled from multiple sources – military records, the 1890 Veterans’ Schedule, newspaper articles, G.A.R. membership and cemetery records.  Therefore, the soldiers I include as “Perinton/Fairport soldiers” may have moved to the area after the war.  They may have enlisted in Perinton but never lived there.  There are many reasons they may be listed as “Perinton/Fairport soldiers”.

9 Comments on “Civil War Soldiers of Perinton & Fairport”

  1. Stephen Barrett Says:

    Enoch A Barrett was the brother of my great-grandfather. If you need more information on him
    to add to your information on Civil War veterans from Perinton, let me know.

    • I’m so happy to hear from a Barrett descendant! Thanks for taking the time to write, Stephen. I’d love any information you have about Enoch A. Barrett and his family.

  2. Craig Mann Says:

    Your list includes a ‘Jeremiah Treadwell’. My great-great-great grandfather was named Jeremiah Jarvis Treadwell, born in 1820. He lived in NY in 1850, but lived mostly in Mass. What other identifiers do have in your records (i.e. race, parents, yr of birth, etc.)?

    • Hi Craig,

      My Jeremiah Treadwell is a man of mystery. Little is known of him. I will email you directly the information I do have on him. Thanks for checking out Illuminated History!

      • Craig Mann Says:

        Jeremiah was married to a Harriet Kellis of Southampton, NY, a member of the Shinnecock Nation. I’ve been told that Jeremiah was a cook for President Lincoln.

      • It would be amazing if Jeremiah cooked for President Lincoln! Any idea how we could verify that?

  3. Jim Holihan Says:

    Vicky, my great grandfather James Holihan was a Civil War veteran and I’d be very interested in any information you have about him. We’ve gathered some information but always looking for more! Thanks in advance for your reply.

    • Hi Jim,

      Thanks for stopping by Illuminated History. I’ve got very little about James Holihan, except that he enlisted 09/05/1864 in Canandaigua, New York, as a Private in Co. G, 188th New York Infantry. James was discharged 07/01/1865 in Washington, D.C. He is listed as a Fairport/Perinton veteran because he was a member of G.A.R. E.A. Slocum Post #211 of Fairport. The G.A.R. was a veteran’s organization started after the Civil War. I’ll see what else I can find about James.

    Thanks Vicki for your prompt reply and any other information you can dig up would be appreciated!
