In reply to your letter will say that I know just a few facts about Father, I cant give you the date of his birth but he died in the year 1896 cant tell the day of the month. he served in the war untill the surrender he was in Co. H - 49 Georgia regiment he enlisted March 1862 served three years or untill the surender. sont know name of any of his officers havent any of his old papers his name was Benjamin Thomas Harrison for further information you might see Aunt Mary Chivers there in Harrison.

I am most sure she could give some facts about Father as he was in the same Co that Aunt Marys husband was I think wishing you sucess.

I am very truly
