91st PA: Robert Newton Martin

Robert Newton Martin

Before the war

He was born in 1840 (7).

During the war

He served as a private in company A of the 3rd Pennsylvania Infantry (7).

He was mustered in as orderly sergeant in company M of the 62nd Pennsylvania Infantry (8).

He was promoted to First Lieutenant of company M of the 62nd Pennsylvania Infantry (7, 8).

On 20 July 1864, John Lentz asked how Lieutenant Robert N Martin, transfered from the 62nd Pennsylvania Infantry, should be assigned (1).

On 21 July 1864, he, and all the members of companies L and M, were assigned to company G (2). On 22 July 1864, they were transferred to company K, following brigade instructions to assign them to the smallest company (3).

On 23 July 1864, he was ordered to join the company of the 62nd Pennsylvania at Washington DC (4, 6). This consisted of men from companies L and M whose terms expired before 25 August 1864 (5).

After the war

He died in 1912 (7). He was buried in Renovo, Blair County, Pennsylvania (7).

Note

I have not added him to the database of men who served in the 91st, since the index to the compiled service records mentions only his service in the 62nd PA, and that is consistent with the rest of the information I have about him.
