Confederate Private Daniel W. Jenkins 9th Ky


Daniel was killed at Shiloh. He reportedly was a free-born Mulatto? Other than this photo is there actual records to confirm his race? (census, birth, marriage, etc.) I notice there was a John Jenkins also in Company D. John was captured at Missionary Ridge. The Union Army's description says he was of a "fallow" complexion, which I take to be light brown? Any help and opinion would be appreciated.
