This group of men served during the Civil War in the Arizona Territory. Their assignment was to establish a military presence in the Arizona Territory to discourage Texas invaders from taking the western territories. Nothing else is known of these men.

Interesting notes:

  • Is Downer Street in Oroville, perhaps related to Private. H. P. Downer?

  • Could it be that the Bloch Funeral Home in Gridley was established by someone in Private Joseph Bloch's family?

  • Is Private Jno. Cassaday related to the family of the same name in Gridley?
