A name may appear multiple times - just as it did in the original source.
You may want to try searching for spelling variations in the lists above. Some names were also reversed with first name appearing as surname in the military records. Check all possibilities!
This index lists over 18,000 entries. According to the book: approximately 17,000 California men volunteered for the war. Some of them were stationed in other States during their enlistment. There were 400+ California men who also volunteered to serve for the 2nd Massachusetts regiment, and were involved in many battles which helped decide the outcome of the war. Some of our men were there when General Lee surrendered!
