Military Records

Roster of Company C, 1st Battalion Infantry, Waul’s Texas Legion

Note:  The following information was provided as a series of Tables, but lost that format in transformation to this webpage.   My apology to you, but especially to Steve Weise who created and supplied the PDF file which my computer programs would not allow. 

If you are aware of other available military records or can provide us with such records, please contact Joy Neely or Steve Alvarez  .

 

This table is collected from multiple sources and from the work of others. It was started in February 2010 in an effort to provide a document which others can use and add information. Clearly it is a work in progress, but may provide leads for others doing genealogical/historical research. There are several individuals included here that were not in Co. C (also called Co. E for a time) to my knowledge. They are included here because the letters of Capt. Voigt frequently mention them, which could cause confusion for a new researcher, or because a source said they were in Company C, but I was unable to confirm this. In some cases men were transferred in and out of the company or the records or other research accounts seem to imply this was the case. References are included so that researchers may go to the source of the information.

The company recruiting started on March 22, 1862 in Industry, TX. Capt Voigt was a businessman there and in Houston. Further recruiting was done in Bellville, TX, and the officer and non-commissioned officers were elected there. The unit then went on to Hempstead and then Houston, TX, probably adding recruits along the way. Some of Voigt’s Houston friends or their relatives joined the unit in Houston. The unit was sworn into service on April 4, 1862 in Houston. The unit reached Camp Waul for training on May 21, 1862. During training, new recruits were added to the company, and some men were transferred in and out of the company. The unit left Camp Waul to join the Mississippi Campaign on August 18, 1862. All operations of the company remained in Mississippi after arriving there. After arriving at Camp Coldwater above Holly Springs around October 11, 1862, the men received uniforms and muskets that had been converted from flintlock to percussion. The active Company was surrendered to Union forces just outside Yazoo City, MS, in the early morning hours of July 14, 1863. Many company members were captured at the various Yazoo City hospitals on July 13th. Major General Francis J. Herron reported to General Grant on July 16, 1863, that of the Confederates captured at Yazoo City, he sent the well prisoners down by boat to Vicksburg (122 privates & 7 officers) and paroled 1 officer & 146 men from the hospitals. (From Official Record of the Union & Confederate Armies, Series I, Volume 24, Part III, pages 519-520)

This document only reflects the information found in the list of references below. It is hoped that others will add to this or correct errors and add references where the information can be found.
