Co G, 5th Alabama
I'm searching for a Baynes (Baines, Banes) ancestor named Matthew R Baynes. I have pension records that say he was n the 1st AL regiment, and Co. B, 37th MS regiment. I know the facts after the war, married living in Clarke county, MS. While searching I came across a Mathias Banes, Co. G, 5th AL. I cannot find very much information on this group. In tracking our Mathew/Matthew Baynes I have come across this Mathias. If I have more information about Co. G, 5th Alabama I might find some more answers. This unit appears to be a Union unit. I also found the names Henry and J with this unit. Is there a possibility these are the same person? or related? location of 1st, 5th? Thanks, I'm not a civil war person, but currently learning a little.
