Westbrook's Notes: Bates' History is short 38 names in this Company, having no account of them. This Roll is dated dec 31, 1861, at Camp Griffin, Va.; signed by Captain Joseph M. Greene and Colonel William H. Irwin and checked off from the Rolls in Adjutant General's Office at Harrisburg, Pa. The date of Com. Officers Greene, Davidson and Harper is July 4, 1861. All remaining in Company July 11, 63 were transferred to Co. D.

Breth's Transcription Notes: Corrections were made only if certainly known. Alphabetical order of names was corrected. No dates were changed or omitted. This Regiment also called Penn's Valley Infantry. The residence listed is actually the muster point. Some surname spellings do not agree with Linn's History.



*****NOTE: Robert Westbrook complains many times in his book that Samuel P. Bates' "History of the Pennsylvania Volunteers" contains many errors of ommision. Listed below are Westbrook's discrepancies with Bates.
