I am not familiary with the 22nd, however, I note a couple of references to information on the regiment.

I have no idea why the War Department Clerks, ca 1900, cataloged the roster as they did. Following are the five Nelsons listed. Erastus F. could very well
be B. F. Nelson.

A. Nelson, Private, Company A, 22nd Alabama Infantry, admitted to 1st Mississippi CSA Hospital, Jackson, Mississippi March 20, 1862, Delibity, returned to duty March 28, 1862, no further records


B. F. Nelson, 1st Sergeant, Company D, 22nd Alabama Infantry, recipient of Medal of Honor, Battle of Murfreesboro, his file of 10 cards contains a number of hand written documents too faint to read on-line


E. A. Nelson, Private, Company D, 22nd Alabama Infantry, Reference Slip, Cards filed with Erastus F. Nelson


Erastus F. Nelson, Private, Company D, 22nd Regiment Alabama Infantry, admitted 1st Mississippi CSA Hospital, Jackson, Missisippi March 20, 1862, Mumps, returned to duty March 25, exchanged at Vicksburg, Mississippi on board Steamer Maria Denning November 15, 1862, captured near Atlanta, Georgia August 3, 1864, sent to Camp Chase, Ohio prison camp arriving August 14, transferred for exchange to Point Lookout, Maryland March 18, 1865, no other records


James T. Nelson, Private, Capt. Young's Company, Cooper Rifles, Alabama Vols.,* enlisted August 18, 1861 at Mobile, Alabama by Capt. N. L. Young for the war, company mustered out of service October 25, 1861, paid November 11, 1863 for commutation of rations while on sick Furlough, receipted for an issue of clothing March, 1864, no further records

* This company subsequently became Company H, 22nd Regiment Alabama Infantry
