Co L 49th Reg IA Vol Inf

The following information comes from Lynn Whitson Risner:

The roster was from a woman in Colorado who had bought Frank Whitson's old briefcase at auction and had never looked through it at the time of purchase.

This looks like a tri-folded document.  I typed up the center panel first, then the left and right sides.  In italics are handwritten notes.
