Civil War Days
Ancestry has released some great databases recently pertinent to the Civil War - I will note here that this year is the 150th anniversary of that conflict - and one of the databases is that of New York Town Clerk Records of Men Who Served in the Civil War.
Here is one of the records I found and I was not aware of this son of Cotton & Martha (Davis) Percival. Actually, I didn't have Martha's maiden name before either.
