Co. K, 207th PA Regt.

I stumbled upon an absolutely WONDERFUL website with information and archives from Tioga County, PA, and the surrounding areas:

The 207th regiment was chiefly composed of soldiers whose homes were in Tioga, Bradford and Lycoming counties. Companies A, D, H and K and parts of B, E and G were recruited in Tioga county. Company C was recruited in Clinton County, F in Cumberland and Franklin, I in Lycoming, and parts of B, E and G in Bradford, York and Lancaster. 

The regiment was organized at Camp Curtain, Harrisburg, September 8th 1864, with Robert C. Cox, of Tioga county, colonel; W. W. Snoddy lieutenant-colonel, and Victor A. Elliott, of Tioga, major; and on the 12th of September it started on the front. It did distinguished service, particularly in the closing scenes in and around Petersburg and Richmond.

    PastorD–thanks for posting this. Andrew Duryea is my great grandfather. I have only one photo of the Duryea family, evidently taken after their son, Lyman died, since he’s not present in it. I”d be glad to send it to you if you’ll provide and email address.
