91st PA--non-commissioned officers in Company E

Non-commissioned officers in Company E

[Source: descriptive books, National Archives and Records Administration]
[Note: this list does not include all promotions. For example, Samuel Conrad was promoted to first sergeant effective 26 May 1865, but is not listed as a first sergeant, and George Hampton was promoted to sergeant on 1 June 1865, but is not listed as a sergeant, and George W Keever was promoted to sergeant on 1 June 1865, but is not listed. Clearly, the list does not include promotions at the end of the company's service. More surprisingly, William Jeffries is not listed as a corporal, although the descriptive roll lists him as promoted to corporal, and then to sergeant.]
[I have proofread and edited this list.]
[This list is on two pages, and is divided into four groups: first sergeants, sergeants, corporals, and musicians.]
