Re: Woodward's 2nd Ky. Cavalry, CSA
Someone else asked about Joseph P. Staton some months ago. After a thorough search I found no record that he was ever in Confederate service. Had he been an officer, especially a field officer as the family story goes, there would have to be records in his name. In Kentucky many men held strong Southern sympathies but never enlisted in Confederate service. The military governor of the state made life very hard for these people.
Your other source for Confederate service would be a Texas pension application. If memory serves, there is no record of anything under this name.
