          I did some additional research to find the spelling of his last name that was used when in service. It was Valentine Mustech. You need to remember spelling last names where very hard for some individuals because of them being illiterate and no education.


          Please see where he is buried. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/3194898/valentine-mastead

            Thank you for posting your request on History Hub.


            We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Indexes to the Carded Records of Soldiers Who Served in Volunteer Organizations During the Civil War in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that include a file for Maskch, Valentine, which maybe a match for Valentine Musich. These records have been digitized and are available using the Catalog and here is a link: Maskch,Valentine- Unit: 19th Infantry, Company E- Enlistment Rank: Pvt, Discharge Rank: Pvt..
