A List of All Ex-Confederate Soldiers from the Centennial Edition of the Hood County News-Tablet of August 11, 1966. An introduction to the article states, "We are indebted to J. Newton Nutt for this clipping which lists the names of Confederate veterans. It isn't dated but we quote that which we can read."

A Complete Roster of All Registered Up To This Time

"Below we give the names, company initials and regiments or other condensed data of every old soldier so far registered in Hood County. Adjutant W. J. Bonner (we think, copy not clear) asks that any veteran whose name does not appear call at Capt. Morris' store and have their name entered. If there are any errors in the list, please call attention to them."

I'm Preston Furlow. My G-Grandfather was T.A. Furlow. The spelling is a little different than that on the list. If you'd like his whole name, it was Timothy Augustus Furlow.

Thank you for making this list, sir. I and the other reenactors of the 10th Texas Infantry, Co. E, and of Anderson's Battery are very grateful that others here take pride in their heritage and honor their ancestors.

I would like to add my great-grandfathers name to the list of Hood county Confederate veterans. His name was David H. Eddleman he enlisted in CO. C, 10TH TEXAS INFANTRY, Capt. Will Shannon's company. He enlisted Jan. 3, 1862 and was discharged due to physical disability in Louisiana in May 15, 1862.

His brother Asbury F. Eddleman also was in the same company and served throughout the entire war.

Subject: Correction to Web Page Info on John R. Cherry

Your web-site has a small but important typo regarding my ggg'father John R. Cherry.

He served with the Tenn. 50th Infantry not 5c....a small but important detail that is confirmed by the below info:

Hello Bob,

Found the record of Private John R. Cherry in the two volume set of books, "Tennesseans in the Civil War". This is the same set of books that the Tennessee State Library and Archives use for soldier look-ups. It appears that the 5c is a typo or if your record was hand written, it was poorly written. The 5c is actually a 50.

Private John R. Cherry, 50th Tennessee Infantry, Company "H".

Hope this helps and am afraid this is the only information I could find. The National Archives does not list him on their Index to Roster Records in their holdings. This is very common with Confederate soldiers as most Confederate records were either lost or destroyed during the war.

Good Luck,
Art Freeman

It is important you please correct the on-line information because of the lack of records on many CSA soldiers, the reliance upon such source info and obituaries by descendents for genealogy searches, and reliance upon such info by Hood County Genealogical Society.

Thanks very much,
