91st PA: William (or John) McCormick

William (or John) McCormick

Before the war

He was born in 1817/18 (2 (43 in 1861), 5 (44 in 1861)).

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 19 November 1861 (1, 2, 4 (6 Nov 61)). He was a private in company B (1, 3, 4, 6).

He deserted on 10 December 1861 (1, 2). He was a private, in company B (3, 4 [not on the muster-out roll], 6).

Note on identification

Bates (4) has another John McCormick mustered in on 6 November 1861, in company K, but they were different ages when they enrolled according to the Pennsylvania Archives cards (5). The index to compiled service records (3) indicates that a John and William are the same person; it is possible that I've linked the wrong John to William.
