Note: The contributor of names for Company G, unknown to me (Dave Stover), 
took the time to append each entry with comments about each soldier. A sample 
of the comments is provided.

....killed in the charge of Gettysburg in the very front July 2, 1863; a 
tidy, brave and responsible soldier, a loss to this country.

....wounded, recovered and returned to the company; a fine sample of the 
Christian soldier, true and brave;

....no man in the company did more or better service than this boy; 
discharged with the company;

....was a particularly good soldier until July 8, 1863, when he deserted, to 
the surprise of all.

....deserted; was never in action; was no good.

....wounded June 17th near Petersburg, Virginian, and again October 26, 1864, 
and captured by the enemy; died in prison; a young man, esteemed by all; a 
brave and earnest soldier.
