Hello, everyone! I was wondering if anyone could help me with researching a sailor from the Civil War. According to the “U.S., Naval Enlistment Rendezvous, 1855-1891” an Edward Bixby enlisted on December 30, 1864, in New York. The record says he was a 30-year old broker living in Otsego. He was a Massachusetts native. It also lists him as having enlisted for two years, but there is no further record of his service. I attached the enlistment record (courtesy of FamilySearch) for anyone interested. He is the sixth man listed. In “History of Otsego County, New York” (1878) by Duane Hurd, Edward Bixby is listed as one of the men from the county as having served in the Navy during the war, again with no record of his service given. I was wondering where I could look to find further record of his service. I was also wondering if anyone could help verify his identity-as I am guessing the man who enlisted was Edward Everett Bixby, son of Montgomery and Mary Bixby, born 1829 in Massachusetts and died 1873 in New York, but the age difference and the fact that I can not find any records of him having lived in Otsego make it difficult to verify. Thanks!
