91st PA--consolidation of Edward Wallace's and Edgar Gregory's regiments

Consolidation of the regiments

Bates (p.186) claims that in October 1861, the men recruited by Edward Wallace were consolidated with the regiment Edgar Gregory was forming. And a newspaper article from 19 October 1861 claims that the regiments were consolidated 'to get the sooner into the field'.

The only other reference I have so far found to this consolidation is in the Company F descriptive roll, which claims that some men were transferred from company F to Captain Sinex's company D "on Consolidation of the two Regts". The transferred men include William Weaver, Joseph Billheart, George Smith, and William Pentland.
