A question for you and others. Here is an excerpt from Lillian Henderson's Georgia Rosters of Confederate Soldiers:
William B. Howell
Residence Campbell County GA;
Enlisted on 3/4/1862 as a Private.
On 3/4/1862 he mustered into "K" Co. GA 41st Infantry
(date and method of discharge not given)
He was listed as:
* POW 7/4/1863 Vicksburg, MS
* Paroled 7/6/1863 Vicksburg, MS (No further record)
- Roster of Confederate Soldiers of Georgia 1861-1865
It's the "No further record" that bothers me. I have recently looked at this CMSR and it definitely tracks with muster roll entries, special assignments and finally the Greensboro surrender, including his parole card.
I know we've talked about some of the problems with Lillian Henderson's information before, but where were they getting their information. If from the NARA, then this is gross carelessness. If from other records, what were they?
I'm sure many have examples of inadequacies in the Lillian Henderson roster, but still it was a massive undertaking and I wish some of the other states had compiled similar information.
