Army Registers for 1862 and 1863?

If anyone out there has a copy or knows where to find a copy of the 1862 and 1863 Army Registers, I'd dearly love to hear from them. Or ideas on where to look, for that matter. I have 1861, 1864 and 1865, but haven't been able to locate the other two.

The regular cavalry officer database project rolls along, albeit slowly. Using the above listed registers, I've accumulated 300 names. These, of course, will have to be fleshed out, but I'm still missing a few. Possibly a West Pointer or two, but more likely soldiers promoted from the ranks and killed before the 1864 register, like Lieutenant Balder of the 6th Cavalry, for example. More on the database once it's more then a list of names. As I said before, I'll start with the 6th and go from there.

Don and or Eric, I am very interested in getting the muster rolls for the years that you have. I just posted a comment on the other page, but since this is my first blogging I don't quote know how this works. The Sidney Davis that you refer to in your blog is my great-great-grandfather. After the war he went to work in the US Government Printing office in Washington DC. Please email me if you can help me get a copy of the muster rolls

Sorry, just saw this comment. I can definitely help you get copies of the rolls, but you didn't leave me your email address! I'd also love to learn more about your great-great-grandfather if you have more information.
