Query 277
SURNAMES: SHURBET/SHURBIT
Submitter: Larry Shurbet (shurbets@net66.com)
Date: 03 Mar 1999

Looking for information in Calhoun County and area on HENRY MIDDLETON? SHURBET, HENRY MIDDLETON? SHERBIT, VARIOUS SPELLINGS. My Mother and I have been searching for any and all information regarding "Henry Middleton? Shurbet." H.M.S. resided in Prentiss and enlisted in the Confederacy in 1862 in 19th Infantry, CO-K. We have copies of documents that show this but we are unable to find much else. On his military papers his name was usually spelled "Sherbit", however, there are different spellings as I'm sure you know. He served at Richmond VA, at Chimbrazo Hospital as a Guard, and later in Columbus, and return to Prentiss at the close of the Civil War. H.M.S. was born 1814 in Spartanburg SC?, and died and is buried in Prentiss, MS in 1892. He was my G-G-G Grandfather. His Son, to whom I descend, was Zadus Brister Shurbet. One Genealogist suggests that he was a spy for the Confederacy, and suggests that that is the reason we are unable to find much information. If you can be of any assistance, Mom and I would sure appreciate your help. Your Heritage Friend, Larry
