91st PA: Michael Muldoon

Michael Muldoon

Note

I am assuming that the Michael Muldoon who served in company D is the same person as the Michael E Muldoon who served in company H. Note, however, that the only direct evidence in favor of that is the Pennsylvania Archives card on the company H Muldoon. Further, the index to compiled service records has separate cards for them.

Before the war

He was born in 1843/44 (3 (19, muster rolls have '34', in 1861), 7 (17 in 1861)).

When he enlisted, he was living in Philadelphia (7).

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 25 September 1861 or 20 December 1861 (1 [20 Dec], 3 [25 Sep], 4 [25 Sep], 7 [25 Sep]). He was mustered in as a private, in company D (1, 3, 7, 8, 9 (co. H)).

He was transferred to company H.

According to the company D records, he deserted on 25 October 1861 (1 [unknown date], 2, 3 [unknown date]). He was discharged at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on writ of habeas corpus, probably because he was a minor (4, 5, 6, 7). He was a private (8 (co.D), 9 (co. H)).
