Background

Many from Middletown volunteered to serve in the Civil War as members of the Wallkill Guards, the Tenth Legion, and the Orange Blossoms, among others. The town sent over 900 men, with 110 dying on the battlefield. 20 of the men who hailed from Middletown were black. Three Middletown Civil War Veterans received the Congressional Medal of Honor and are buried in Hillside Cemetery, these being Sgt. Thomas D. Collins, Pvt. Nathan M. Hallock, and Capt. Lewis S. Wisner.

Historical Society of Middletown Records

The Historical Society of Middletown poured through many documents along with online databases to build a comprehensive list of the town's Civil War soldiers. This list was put together into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, and then published on the Society's website. The Society has photos of these men on their website (click here).

Interment.net converted the spreadsheet into PDF format to accommodate persons without Microsoft Excel...


Research of Frank S. Coleman

Frank S. Coleman had published some material about Civil War soldiers who were laid to rest at Hillside Cemetery in Middletown. He had published this on his own personal website, but that website had since been taken offline. We disovered his material in Archives.org, and converted it to PDF files so that it continues to serve genealogists, local historians, and Civil War enthusiasts...

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
