91st PA: John Wood

John Wood

Before the war

He was born in 1820/21 (3 (40 in 1861)).

During the war

He was enlisted and mustered into service, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 11 October 1861 (1, 3, 4). He was mustered in as a private in company I (1, 3, 5).

He may be the John Wood whom Sinex reported on 8 September 1863 was in Philadelphia and able to rejoin the regiment, and requested his return (2).

He was not on the muster-out roll (1, 3). He was a private, in company I (5). According to the pension index card, he also served in company A of the 19th Veterans' Reserve Corps--but the index to compiled service records doesn't refer to his service in the VRC (4, 5).

After the war

On 9 February 1882, he successfully applied for a pension (4).
