While researching father's mother's side( my grandmother), it seems her grandfather was in Co G. 9th INF. , He's from NY. Any ideas what unit that was? What would I look up, NY 9th volunteers, or was is a regular army unit. Thanks for any help.

I found the second one you posted, Hawkins zouaves, I checked the roster the only Joyce is a Patrick not John. Are cilvil war records precise? Maybe he went by middle name. Cavalry? Never thought that. I'll see if I can find the roster.

Don’t confuse Calvary, which is the cemetery’s name, with the cavalry. Your man was a Private in Company G, 9th Infantry Regiment. Probably a volunteer infantry regiment from New York, but it could have been from another state. Good luck.

The units I suggested were two volunteer units from New York I found, it was only a quick search do give some ideas of possible units. I'll give the name a search in ancestry and see if it yields any results.

I am unsure if this is your guy but it was the best of the records that came up in my search.

Thanks huntsurplus, but your link just brings me to the ancestry home page. Nothing else. Thank you for trying.

No I actually thought he meant cavalry, not the cemetery. I know the cemetery well I'm from that area. I wonder why he's not on the roster. Could his unit be from another state? And not NY

The National Park Service Soldier and Sailor Roster has well over a dozen John Joyce's from New York State alone, all in different units. 

What led you to believe this one is your guy?
