My gg grandfather was born and raised in Florida and according to his headstone he fought in the civil war with Company H 5th Calvary, I can't find any mention of this unit on your website.

BOZEMAN, Alabama / Walton Co. FL

I have a problem. My GGGrandfather James Bozeman was enlisted as priv, in Co I, infantry, 40th AL. Yes, he was born in Covington Co. AL but the 1860 Census showed that his parents and siblings along with his (James") wife and two children had not long recided in Walton County FL. I have information that James died Dec. 24, 1864 in Rock Island Illinous POW camp. Apparently, although he had moved to FL, it seems that he enlisted with AL confederacy. I am having some difficulty locating much information about him because of this. Can you help me?

ADAMS, FL 11th Inf Co. E / LEWIS, FL 10th Inf Co. H

I have been trying to find information on 2 of my ancestors that were (according to my great grandmother's UDC application) members of the 10th & 11th regiments of the FL Infantry.

They did not apply for pensions according to the Archives in Tallahassee, so I'm trying to find access to military records in FL without having to actually go down there (I live in VA). The following information is what my ggrandmother wrote:

Cason McCoy Adams (1826-1911) was a private in Co. E, 11th Regiment of the FL Infantry. He enlisted 2 March 1863 at Madison, FL. The company muster roll Nov-Dec 1864 shows him as absent "sent to hospital in Richmond" on 17 Aug 1864. He was paroled 18 May 1865. Personal description was "5'9", light hair.

James Shepard Lewis (1828-1897) served with Co. H, 10th Regiment of the FL Infantry. He was discharged 17 May 1865. She did not list any enlistment date or location. James' brother Daniel was killed at Gettysburg and James was appointed Guardian of Daniel's 4 minor orphans. I am trying to find some definite results as to the participation and rosters of these regiments. Can you shed any light?

Samuel C. Strickland - Kilcrease Light Artillery

I'm researching my 3rd great-grandfather Samuel C. Strickland (born abt 1830 in SC, died about 1910 in GA, buried in Manor, GA). He was in Jefferson Co., FL in the 1860 and 1870 census'. He served as a C.S.A. soldier in the Kilcrease Light Artillery. He enlisted 4/28/64 at P&G R.R. Can someone tell me what P&G R.R. stands for. Perhaps something like Perry and Gulf Railroad? I would like to learn more about what activities this unit participated in and anything else that may be of interest concerning it. Thanks,

My great-grandfather was James Llewellyn Oliver, born in Alabama in 1842, son of Berrien Oliver, served in the 2d Fla. Cavalry at Olustee and Natural Bridge. His children were James Carter Oliver (my grandfather), Earnest Oliver and Jennie Oliver Warren. James Carter Oliver's son was my father, Wayne Carter Oliver. All the above are buried in the Oliver family cemetary at Wakulla, which I still legally own. I have accumulated a substantial amount of information on the Oliver Family (going back to England in the 1500's) which I will share with anyone seriously interested.

HERRING & 11th FL Inf. History
 I'm looking for John E. Herring who supposedly was captured and coerced into
deserting so he wouldn't go to prison. He was in the hospital with Typhoid
fever one day and a couple of days later he was taking the oath as a deserter.
I'm just trying to see if there is ANY record ANYWHERE of his being captured.

I found something very interesting on these rosters for the 11th
Infantry.  15% of the men in companies D & E deserted.  I also found a
number of Honorably Discharged----a term I'd not seen on any of the
others. Could I possibly find an in-depth history of the 11th Infantry
somewhere.  This is so unusual that I'd like to look into it.

According to the tombstone of James B. Walker, he was born in 1843 and died in 1863 in CSA. After searching through all the counties bordering his resident county of Nassau (both Georgia & Florida), and finding him on no muster roll, I'm beginning to wonder if that CSA stood for Confederate States of America rather than Confederate States Army. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? Sincerely,

ARNOW, George J. fought with the 7th FL Regiment, CSA. His wife predeceased him so there is no pension application on file.

He reenlisted 416/64 in Company D, 2nd Florida US) Cavalry in Taylor Co. as a refugee from the Confederacy and was promoted Sgt 8/12/64 but was reduced in early 1865. He was briefly missing in action 3/6/65 at Natural Bridge. He was mustered out 11/29/65 at -Tallahassee. He was 6', blue eyes, dark hair & fair skin. Occupation: farmer. He had at least three children. Stanaland, Raborn S (b. 1824 Appling Co.

He was furloughed 9/28/65 and was mustered out 11/29/65 at Tallahassee. He was 6', blue eyes, dark hair & sandy skin. Occupation: farmer. I hope this information is useful. Sincerely,

Houston, who was listed as a Private in Company H of the 2nd Florida, there are serveral record cards I obtained from the Florida Archives, the last enty stated he deserted in 1864. Do you have any information on the Cadet Corps of Florida Seminary? (Now FSU). Would greatly appreciate any and all information

Wife: Mary Watson
Served with Co C of 1st Regiment Florida Reserves in the Civil War. Enlisted
May 2 1864, at Marianna. A muster roll dated "to May 14, 1865," stated that

Born: 22 Dec 1842 GA
Died:  5 Aug 1920 FL Jackson Co

During Civil War, enlisted July 3, 1861 at Greenwood, Jackson Co, FL, for 12
months. He was mustered into the Confederate Army as a private in Co D,
Capt. Barnes' Co, Sept 25, at Fort Mallory. That company became Co I of the
4th FL
Infantry, with which he was shown in service through Dec, 1862. At the
Battle of Murfreesboro (Stones River)TN, he was shot in the foot and
captured on Jan. 5, 1863. He was imprisoned at Louisville, KY, until
exchanged, arriving at
City Point, VA, Apr 2, 1863. He apparently never returned to service.

These were father and son, William being the father. I'm sure of the son's
service. I'm reasonably sure the William listed in records of the 1st
Reserves was James' father but would like conclusive proof if it's
