In Response To: Re: 6th Georgia Infantry ()

This is all I really know about the Infantry that you are seeking. My uncle is trying to find out some information on my great great uncle. He has looked up alot of stuff for our genealogy. He might be able to help you find out some information. He has posted some stuff on the genealogy forum pages. If you would like for me to ask him if he know's more about the infantry then you could email me back at Maybe you could get some names off of what I have posted and look them up also. Hope I can help you, even if it's just a little. If you want to look up my uncle, in the genealogy forum tips part, put in the name Johnny L.T.N. Potter.
