Franklin Elliott is my 2nd great grandfather. According to his Confederate Pension Application, he enlisted in Oct 1861 with th 19th for a few months, Company E. Then, he was transfered in about June 1862 to 26th Arkansas Infantry, Company G of the Brooks Regiment, and served with this regiment until the end of the war. His full name is Zimri Franklin Elliott, and his application was rejected because "Z.F. Elliott" was not found on any roll.
