Scipio in the Civil War

As promised, I have been busy getting started on Civil War information for our town. I have reviewed all the names listed in the 1865 Town Clerk's book of those who served. I believe it is pretty accurate, and our boys in blue numbered 156.
Next I will need to check the census data for Scipio in 1865. I believe we'll find about 10% of our residents served their country.
I will publish the names of those listed in the Town Clerk Book over the next few weeks, so check back to see if you recognize any names.
