Byron apparently led quite a life, including starting a newspaper in West Virginia (where he was also a real estate agent), dredging Charleston Harbor after the war for the Army Corps of Engineers, founding a company for mining in Mexico, and ending his life as a Forester for the Shade Tree Commission in Westfield. He was born in Lansing, Tompkins Co. NY. His wife's name was Helen Elizabeth (nee Clark) Howell. His five children were named Helen C. (born in NY), Byron C. (jr.) (born in NY), Nellie C. (born in Ohio), Alice F.(born in Kentucky), and William R. (born in West Virginia). He died on January 6, 1915, while on a visit to Haverstraw, NY, and is buried in Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, NJ (Union County). During the 1890's he resided in Cranford. I have a copy of his obituary from The Cranford Citizen of January 7, 1915, which mentions he was a veteran of the 76th.

 

His obituary was published in The Cranford Citizen of January 7, 1915 (Thursday). The Citizen was one of two weekly papers then published in Cranford, NJ. The obituary reads:

B.C. Howell, for many years a resident of Cranford, but for the past fifteen years of Westfield, died suddenly yesterday morning at Haverstraw, N.Y., where he was visiting, apoplexy being the cause. Mr. Howell was 75 years of age and numbered among his friends a large number of Cranford people. He served in the Civil War in the 76th N.Y. Volunteers.

Mr. Howell was a civil and mining engineer by profession but had retired from active work in this line. For the past two years he had served Westfield as Forester for the Shade Tree Commission.

Mr. Howell is survived by his widow, three daughters and two sons.

Hull, Henry L age 20, enlisted date not stated at Rome; mustered in as musician, Co I, Seventy-sixth New York Vol, Oct 12, 1861, to serve three years; transferred to the band, Nineteenth Infantry, date not stated; 
dsignation of regiment changed to Third Artillerry, Dec 11, 1861; transferred to Battery H, August 30, 1862; to Battery B, Oct 4, 1862; to Battery C, May 1, 1863; mustered out with battery, as corporal, June 2, 1863. Not in AG report. Reported by B. Conrad Bush,  found in his research on the 3d NY Heavy Artillery, who notes " just think of all the sweet music the 76th missed out on because of these transfers."

Apparently, Hummel didn't really desert. A descendent of Hummel writes "In our family papers we have a copy of an Enlistment form for Peter M. Hummel in March of 1862 with the NY 3rd Cavalry. It seems plausible that this is the same person." It is possible that Hummel decided to transfer to the Cavalry while he was on furlough (leave) from the 76th NY, which was manning a fort in the ring around Washington DC at the time. Either he didn't realize there were formal ways to accomplish a transfer from one branch to another, or he thought it wouldn't be allowed and decided to take matters into his own hands - so instead of transferring formally, he just enlisted in the 3rd Cavalry. Probably the paperwork never made it back to the 76th that he was still around, albeit in some other unit, and they marked him as deserted on their books - or, in their minds, he actually had deserted, if he never got permission from the original infantry regiment to do the transfer to the cavalry.
