The muster roster essentially came from Compiled Service Record microfilm with "born about" and "lived in ... TWP" added from 1870 Census. Some data was obtained from Volume 3, RECOLLECTIONS AND REMINISCENCES 1861-1865, published by the SC Divison, UDC, pages 104-106. The above should be used as a guide for additional research.
