Andrew Miller - Sergeant   
“Gettysburg:
A Paterson boy Killed at Gettysburg.
Among those who lost their lives at Gettysburg was a young man named Andrew Miller, whose family formerly lived in this city, having kept a tea store in Broadway. Removing to Wisconsin, he entered the regular service of the United States, in which served a number of years, and was honorably discharged. Subsequently he assisted in raising a company of the sixth Wisconsin regiment of volunteers, in which he was offered a commission; but preferred to remain in the ranks, with the grade of orderly sergeant. He participated in the peninsular campaign and the engagements in Western Maryland last year. At Gettysburg he fell mortally wounded. He was a young man of excellent disposition as well as manly courage.”

Bodley Hoffman Jones - Private   
Bodley was killed in action 1 July 1863 at Gettysburg. In Phil Cheek's History of the Regiment he states that Waller said that Bodley Jones went for the flag in the charge and had it in his possession when he was killed, Waller further allegedly said that he took the flag from Bodley and took it and turned it over to the proper officer and he also said that if Bodley had not been killed then he would have gotten the Medal of Honor instead of me (Waller). This is believed to be the only source that claims that Bodley had the flag in his possession when he was killed. The men in his company referred to him as brave Bodley Jones. Bodley is buried in an unmarked soldiers grave at Gettysburg
