How many New Yorkers died?

David Ireland

Ive come across three graves here in the Southern Tier of NY mentioning a KIA at Antietam.

One was Alvin Alcott, who is buried by my bow hunting area but whose unit I can’t figure out.

The other is one buried across the street from my house whose name is illegible at this point.

The other is a 14 year old from Elmira, who after reading the regimental history of that city’s regiment, I discovered was a drummer boy who had his legs ripped off by a canon ball.

I think it would be cool to start a thread honoring New Yorkers killed in action on that day with their biographies.

Does anyone know how many New Yorkers were killed or wounded at Antietam?

Fewer ads. Lots of American Civil War content!

Also can anyone tell me which regiment Alvin Alcott was from?

The stone also has his brother’s name, who was killed at Wilderness.

Info about both brothers can be found on and Find A Grave. Alvin Alcott served as a Private in Company E, 34th New York Infantry. His brother, Daniel Alcott, was a 2nd Lieutenant in Company A, 13th Regiment, Pennsylvania Reserve Infantry (aka 42nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, 1st Pennsylvania Rifles, "Bucktails"). Daniel was killed on May 8, 1864, in the opening phase of the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House.

Thanks for resolving that mystery!

What’s interesting is that his brother’s stone says he died at Wilderness.

How do you know Alvin’s regiment? He’s not on the roster or muster rolls of that unit.

How do you know Alvin’s regiment? He’s not on the roster or muster rolls of that unit.
Searching for Alvin on Ancestry shows him listed in the 1850 Census as Oliver Orcut. In the 1860 Census it's Alvin Acutt. Both records show him in Hornby, Steuben County. The 1850 record shows a Daniel Orcut as well. In the roster of the 34th New York there is an Alvin Orcutt enlisted in Company E at age 18 on May 18, 1861, and killed at Antietam on September 17, 1862. I cannot explain the variations in the name but the records seem to indicate this is your man.

I could have sworn that I had posted it but I couldn't find it after a cursory glance. I have the names of many of the men from New York regiments who died at Antietam and will post them later today.

Anyone have any theories about why Alvin’s name is different on his stone than it is in the records?

There was no standardization of spelling and everything was spelled phonetically, especially in the army. A recruiting officer wrote it one way, a sergeant wrote it another, and Alvin spelled it a third way. It's a major issue in looking at Civil War records.

Searching for Alvin on Ancestry shows him listed in the 1850 Census as Oliver Orcut. In the 1860 Census it's Alvin Acutt. Both records show him in Hornby, Steuben County. The 1850 record shows a Daniel Orcut as well. In the roster of the 34th New York there is an Alvin Orcutt enlisted in Company E at age 18 on May 18, 1861, and killed at Antietam on September 17, 1862. I cannot explain the variations in the name but the records seem to indicate this is your man.
Yeah the cemetery is in Hornby in the middle of the woods.

Records of the deaths of Alvin and Daniel Orcutt taken from Registers of Deaths of Volunteers, 1861 - 1865 found on Alvin is the seventh line from the bottom on the first sheet; Daniel in the middle of the second. Alvin's actual grave is in the Antietam National Cemetery under the name Alvey Orcutt. National Cemetery 1867.pdf
