ROSTER OF CIVIL WAR ENLISTEES
TOWN OF METOMEN
Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin


The Wisconsin State Historical Society has transferred enlistment records for the Civil War to an electronic database that is accessible at the Veterans Museum in Madison. Records can be searched by name, but they can also be searched by enlistment location, and much of the following information was obtained that way. To date, the database is not accessible via the Internet.

Additional sources of information have included the roster pages (540-551) in the History of Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, published by the Western Historical Company in Chicago in 1880 and local cemetery records.

Because the intent of this list is to be as complete as possible, some entries have been included in which the family name occurs in Metomen and the enlistment location is in the immediate vicinity, even if it is not Metomen itself. In a number of instances, known residents of the town of Metomen enlisted elsewhere (typically Ripon) but obviously should be and therefore are included. A number of residents from the town of Alto have also been included, because they enlisted in the town of Metomen (primarily Fairwater). Of special note in that regard is George Pond, who along with his brother James (Janesville) was awarded the Medal of Honor. The Pond family farm was located two miles southeast of Fairwater in section 8 of the town of Alto.
