You do have to page through to find your man, but if you know the right regiment, the companies in it are listed in alphabetical order--usually by the Captain's last name. Some Companies were called by other names;the Colonel's Company, the Major's Company, etc, and those would be filed alphabetically by those titles instead of the actual Captain's name. Pay rolls and muster lists generally have the men listed by rank, with officers first, so on each page look for the corporals, so you don't waste time reading all the names. Keep in mind that your man may have started out as a private.
