1864 September 3: Enrollment List for Polk County

September 6, 2014

The following enrollment list for Polk County comes from the September 3, 1864, issue of The Polk County Press.  There are several interesting names on the list, including the State of Wisconsin’s Adjutant General, August Gaylord (technically from St. Croix Falls), and several men who had already served, such as Daniel Mears, William J. Vincent, Carmine Garlick, and Veit Geiger.  There are multiple names that are probably mis-spelled, so if you are looking for a particular person, keep that in mind.  Please post a comment with any corrected spellings.

THE ENROLLMENT LIST.—We publish the enrollment list, which through the politeness of J. M. RANDALL, Chief Clerk of the Provost Marshal Office, we are enabled to lay before our readers.  We publish it that it may be corrected.  We call the attention to the Chairmen of the different Town Boards, and trust they will take the matter in hand, and have all names stricken from the roll which they can substantiate with proof, as not belonging there.  The list is taken from the original sheets of the rolling officer, and is more imperfect than the books in the office as there has been no corrections made since the 1st of last June.

It is, however, safe to make the corrections by the list we publish.
