I have scoured both the available Confederage and Union regiments and have pretty much eliminated all of the obvious candidates. It may well be that my gt. gt. grandfather did not serve in the Civil War at all, which is fine by me. Our family was well-represented in the 16th Arkansas and the 27th Arkansas, right up to the end of hostilities in the case of the latter. It may well be that he was involved in partisan activities in the area. My principal concern is to keep the record straight. So, I am hardly crest-fallen over this.
