Need info/Philip Slocum
For once, I need help on the following person.
Philip Slocum, but could have been Slocombe, Slocumbs, Stocum, all variations in the spelling of the surname Slocum as perhaps deciphered by the individual hearing the name verbaly ???
Anyhow, Philip enlisted against the Rebellion at Elmira, N.Y., November 26, 1861, (then aged 18 years) Thus he was born in 1843, as a private soldier in Co. B., 10th Regiment New York Volunteer Cavalry.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
