According to his obit, Mark D. Merchant was "born on November 15, 1846 in Wiscoy, Alleghany Co. NY, where his boyhood was spent. On his 18th birthday, Nov. 15, 1864 he enlisted in Co. K. First NY Dragoons, a cavalry regiment for service in the Union army...." " He returned to his boyhood home after receiving his honorable discharge from the army July 16, 1865 and remained there until 1868. In that year he came to Wisconsin...." So it looks like, perhaps, we can assume he signed up in Alleghany Co. NY. Hope that helps.
