Compendium of History and Biography of Hillsdale County Michigan. Elon G. Reynolds. ed. Chicago: AW Bowen & Co 2 Parts - Fully Historical (1903) and Largely Biographical (1903) p 105-106

Very few of the old counties in the Union responded so well to the call to arms in the Civil War of 1861-5 as did patriotic Hillsdale. As the names of the gallant soldiers have had only a limited publication in the county we republish them and thereby give an added reference value to this volume. The first and second Fourth Regiments of Infantry has this long roll of gallant defenders of the Union

Besides the soldiers who enlisted in the above organizations there were a considerable number from this county, who enlisted in other States, and of whom no record is to be found in Michigan. Some of these we here give:
