123rd New York Volunteer Infantry

1862 - 1865

Roster - Company K

Granville and Hampton

Granville was thoroughly awake and put forth every effort to furnish her quota under the call for troops. On Aug. 8th, 1862, a meeting of the citizens was held at the house of R.D. Wing. Rev. S. Haynes was made chairman and A.S. Burdick, secretary. Resolutions were adopted authorizing the Supervisor to borrow $5,200 to be used for the procuring of men; $100 to be paid to each soldier enlisted to the credit of the town - this was before the state had passed any law legalizing such appropriation. To secure the matter beyond all question, the money was raised by the Supervisor executing a note for the amount, and then 116 citizens signed an agreement indemnifying in protecting the Supervisor against loss.

On Dec. 12, 1863, another meeting was held, at which Rev. Haynes again acted as chairman. The meeting approved the action of the Supervisor in raising money to provide for a bounty of $200 to each soldier. At other meetings held in 1864, prompt action was taken to fill the quota of the town. The bounty was raised to $350, and finally to $1,000. In January, 1865, the town was found to have a surplus of men, and the people of Granville did nobly in caring for the families of the soldiers who were away fighting the battles. Granville and Hampton sent 94 men out with the 123rd regiment and took position on the left as Co. K.
