Please Note: Revised Roster and the 1865 Adjutant General's Report erroneously list this soldier as Naylor. He is listed as both Naylor and Naylon in the National Archives records, and listed correctly as Naylon in the list of casualties in Haynes' History of the 10th Vermont, however, G. G. Benedict, in his "Vermont in the Civil War," incorrectly lists him as Michael Naylor. - webmaster
