Leander Emig (the initial "M" seems to have been historically assigned to him in error) Stumbaugh (1849-1874) was a resident of York Springs, PA. He enlisted on October 29, 1861 as a musician and mustered into the Regimental Band of the 77th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry.  He was discharged by General Order on January 15, 1862.
