(Note: You will notice that reading the "background" on these officers, they will be listed as a lower grade compared to when they finally retired from the Navy.  Some of the updated information as to their rank is taken from find-a-grave.) It will also be noted that the men listed retired from the Navy or left the Navy for other reasons.  Mostly they served 30-40 years in the Navy.  As you will also notice dates in the middle to late 1890's.  Also, there are a LOT more officers that served.  On the PDF files, I found 7 books. 

  The information on a majority of the officers will have additions to them, this is due to the editions of the PDF books.  Information will be similar with minor additions. 

The dates of the books (PDF Files)  are 1870, 1878, 1890, 1894, 1898 and 1902
