I am searching for a mysterious Boudreaux from the 30th Louisiana Infantry Company G that died in Cassville, Georgia December 9th 1863 from the Southern Confederacy Newspaper March 25th 1864.
It only has his name Bourdreaux and a line in front of his first name.
I found this site about Acadians in Gray.

And I found a partial roster for Company G
Company G (Stephens Guards, Becnel’s)
St. John the Baptist
BOUDREAUX [Bondro], E. Pvt. Res. Lafourche [Par.]. [En. n.d.,n.p.] POW prl. Meridian, MS, 12 May 65. [NER.] (B1:32b)

But the Boudreaux I am searching for does not seem to match these records. These guys seemed to make it past 1865 and I noticed Marcel is also in Company B. So I go to Company B
Company B [remnants of Henry Clay Guards, St. James Guards (Lacoul’s [Lecoul’s, formerly 2nd Special Battalion Infantry], & Sumter Greys Companies. A & B, added to Lewis Guards] (Jones’s)

Rel. on oath of alleg., [n.p.], 11 Jun 65. Also Co. G. (B1:54-5b)
Which laves me with a couple. Joseph and Charles Marie. Charles seems to be taken as a POW in July of 1863 and Joseph was last seen at Clinton.
So I searched Find A Grave. After all if he is buried somewhere then he is not in Cassville, Georgia
I found a Joseph Boudreaux but his data is more of a place marker.
PVT, Co B, 30th LA Inf (CSA)...Pvt. Co. B. 30th La. Infty. En. March 19th, 1862, Thibodaux, La. Rolls from April 24th to Sept. 4th, 1862, "Absent without leave." Roll for Sept. and Oct., 1862, Present. Roll for Nov. and Dec., 1862, "Died Dec. 7th, 1862, at Clinton, La."
There were several for Charles but none for Charles Marie.
So what I can establish is the 30th Louisiana Company G was called to the area and participated in the battles for Atlanta. I just cant find a Boudreaux that did not return home or died in a Cassville hospital.
