ROSTER OF COMPANY "F" PERSONNEL

COMPANY "F"(Old Co. "D"), Ware Guards from Ware and Pierce; Portions Now in Brantley County, Ga. Names Starting with "A" THRU "H".

 

As a descendant of a C.S.A. soldier, I "tire" of reading exposes' of Union conquests. Regardless to victors of the Civil War, I wanted to know the involvement of my ancestor's. Alton J. Murray, a student and descendant of the 26th Georgia Regiment provides one of the most informative and authoritative books on the involvement of Georgians. Along with other sources, we pay special tribute to, "South Georgia Rebels", by Alton J. Murray, a southern gentleman, gracious for his Civil War heritage.

The next muster roll after organization was for November December 1861, had the following comment: "This company since last muster has remained at Camp Styles, St. Simons Island, Ga. the health of the company has not been good; the measles of which a mild type has nearly gone through the Company having prevailed. Upon relettering of the companies of the Regiment, this Company has been changed from letter "H"to "D" (note it was later changed again to "F" in May 1862."

 

The muster roll for January and February 1862 shows the following: "This Company since last mustered has been moved from St. Simons Island to Brunswick, a distance of about eight miles. The health of the Company has been good.".
