42 nd Regiment
The source of this listing is the 1897 Tioga County History
Transcribed for Tri-Counties by Donna Wert 
This famous regiment was at first commanded by Col. Thomas L. Kane, and was organized June 12, 1861. As its history is well known it need not be repeated here. Each man wore a bucktail in his cap, which became the emblem of the regiment. After seeing much hard service the regiment was mustered out June 11, 1864, having served three years. "The old bunting, " says Bates, "which had floated over the rafts on which the original Bucktails were borne down the Susquehanna in April, 1861, and which had been carried by them in all their campaigns, was borne in procession in Philadelphia on the 4th of July, 1866, by the scarred veterans who survived, and delivered up to the governor, amid the loud acclamations of the multitudes, as they recognized the familiar emblem that surmounted its staff."

William T. Humphrey, of Osceola, who went out as assistant surgeon of the regiment, was promoted to surgeon of the 149th Pennsylvania Volunteers, November 1, 1862.

Company A of this regiment was recruited at Lawrenceville, the roster being as follows:
