HONOR ROLL

THE CIVIL WAR
1861-1865

Members of our family fought on both sides of this conflict. While some men living in the Union slave states of Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland fought for the North and others for the South, I have yet to find any proof that anyone living in the Confederacy fought for the Union, but I have found evidence of "brother fighting brother" in Missouri: It appears Ellsberry and James sided with the Confederacy while John and William Henry backed the Union.

Our family had at least 173 men in blue and 18 in gray -- and at least 27 of them died during the war. Another member of the family, Muhlenburg C. 1836- ? [01-04324] Aladdin "Burg" Muhlenburg, John, Giles, Hiel, Nathaniel, Nathaniel, John, John, was said to have died in the war in Virginia -- but I can't find any evidence to which side he was on. His brother Silas fought for the Confederacy.

This list has been compiled from records of the National Archives, the National Park Service, muster rolls and state archives. While the Union soldiers and sailors are documented in Washington, the Confederates' records are in various state collections which makes it more cumbersome. And many Confederates -- understandably -- had only their initials recorded in records instead of their complete names, adding to the difficulty in figuring out who's whom. I've also run across one black member of the family who served in the Union Army.

More information will be added to each soldier's entry when time allows. Because men frequently changed companies or regiments, this list is in flux and there may be more than one entry for the same man (I'm trying to whittle those "unplaced" soldiers down.) Those men whose names are in red died in the war.

Evidence is more than welcome if you know of other Parmelees, not listed below, who participated in our nation's bloodiest conflict. Pictures of these men would be greatly appreciated.
