These lists of men who served from the Town of Schuyler, Herkimer County, were contributed to us by Laura Perkins and digitally transcribed by Bob Petrie. The research below was done in the early 1930s by well-known Klock family researcher Edgar Jackson Klock, who was a resident of Frankfort, NY. His sources are unknown but we assume he made use of the resources of local libraries, historical societies and cemeteries, as well as the records and memories of friends and family.

These lists were typed by Bob Petrie, who was instrumental in getting our Town of Schuyler section going and will be typing other articles this winter. Bob looks forward to corresponding with others researching the surnames Petrie, Dodge, Countryman, Knapp, Ellison, Robbins, Devendorf, Berner, Hartman, Kane, Burton, Barber and Mosher, as well as the history of the Town of Schuyler.

Laura Perkins, contributer of these lists and other upcoming Schuyler items, is proud of her extended family's participation in local Civil War regiments. Her gg-grandfather served in the 146th NY Vol. Infantry. Laura is researching the family names of SNYDER and BAKER. Her ggg-grandparents were Richard K. and Elizabeth Snyder Baker. Richard was born in Schuyler. Elizabeth, the daughter of John and Catherine Snyder, was born in Frankfort. Laura believes that Richard and Eliz. lived most of their lives in Utica, NY. Any information on them would be most helpful.

Note: Neither Bob, Laura or other Herkimer/Montgomery GenWeb volunteers have further information about the men listed above. The records of Civil War men whose regiments and companies are indicated may be ordered from the National Archives. Do you have information about any of the Schuyler men listed above? Please send it to the Coordinator for posting on this page.
