* Honors/Service Distinctions: A George Foley is listed on the roster for Company D of the 47th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers in the Civil War Veterans’ Card File at the Pennsylvania State Archives. (This entry was based on this same George Foley’s listing on the Company D roster by Samuel P. Bates in his History of Pennsylvania Volunteers. While George Foley is not listed on the 47th’s initial muster rolls for 1861, he is shown on the 1863 ledger of U.S. Civil War Draft Registrations for Perry County. That June 1863 entry notes that he served for 18 months with the Pennsylvania Volunteer Reserve Corps – meaning that he would have mustered in for service with the 47th Pennsylvania Volunteers anytime after June 1863. A Philadelphia death certificate and federal burial ledger confirm that he died on in Philadelphia on 23 April 1864 while in service.)

Hanes, John*
Term of Service: 27 February 1864 – unknown service end date (not on muster out roll)
Rank: Private
* Note: Samuel P. Bates in his History of Pennsylvania Volunteers, 1861-5, originally listed this soldier on his list of “Unassigned Men” for the 47th Pennsylvania Volunteers; however, this soldier’s entry in the Civil War Veterans’ Card File at the Pennsylvania State Archives indicates that he was assigned to the 47th Pennsylvania’s Company D; however, no muster out date was listed

Harper, Martin* and **  (see also “Company H”)
* Name: Listed in Bates’ History of Pennsylvania Volunteers, 1861-5 as “Harper, Martin.” The U.S. Civil War Pension Index card listing for him indicates that this was an “alias,” and that his name was “Harper, Robert Martin.”
Term of Service: 31 August 1861 – 28 July 1862 (discharged on Surgeon’s Certificate of Disability)
Rank: Private
** Honors/Service Distinctions: Mustered in as a Private with Company H, 47th Pennsylvania Volunteers, he was transferred by regimental order to Company D on 20 September 1861. Two entries on his entry in the Civil War Veterans’ Card File at the Pennsylvania State Archives indicate that he was discharged on a Surgeon’s Certificate of Disability. One notes that the discharge occurred while he was stationed at Beaufort, South Carolina, but gives the discharge date of 20 September 1861 – which is impossible since the 47th Pennsylvania was still stationed in Washington, D.C. at this time. The second gives the date as 28 July 1862, which would be an accurate date since the 47th was in Beaufort, South Carolina at this time.

Alternate Spellings of Surname: Jordan, Jourdan
Term of Service No. 1: 11 September 1861 – 10 April 1863 (discharged on Surgeon’s Certificate from Fort Jefferson)
Term of Service No. 2: 30 March 1864 – 25 December 1865 (mustered out with regiment)
Rank: Private
Prior Service: See information re: two terms of service above.
Honors/Service Distinctions: In his History of Pennsylvania Volunteers, 1861-5, historian Samuel P. Bates listed two different soldiers by the name of “Jordan, Anthony” who served with Company D of the 47th Pennsylvania Volunteers at different times. This confusion appears to stem from military and other records (including the Civil War Veterans’ Card File at the Pennsylvania State Archives) which spelled this soldier’s surname on his record as “Jourdan” for his initial enlistment and as “Jordan” for the second. The 1890 U.S. Veterans’ Schedule makes clear that “Anthony Jourdan” and “Anthony Jordan” were the same individual, that he was discharged on a Surgeon’s Certificate from his first term of service with Company D at Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas in Florida on 10 April 1863, and then re-enlisted with Company D on 30 March 1864
