Re: Co F 2nd Ky cavalry
In Response To: Re: Co F 2nd Ky cavalry ()

I recently held a P 1856 Enfield 2 band rifle identified to a trooper in the 2nd Kentucky (It is a Sinclair Hamilton marked example dated 1861) . It was wonderfully "scrimshaw" carved in the butt stock. This carving was "period" and 100% righteous. The rifle is in a small museum and not for sale. I was asked to research the owner. This is what is carved in the stock: "F.E. Co. H. 2nd KY.". The only possibility I found, and I have the Compendium with over a million Confederate soldiers names, and have been through National Archives (online records), is FREDERICK EDWARDS. He was in both the 2nd Infantry in 1861 (Co. K) and later the 2nd Cavalry (Dukes Co.C). HOWEVER I do not find him in CO. H?? How can this be explained? I believe he was KIA in the summer of 1863, but was, according to Basil Duke, in Co. C! So this is a mystery and I would appreciate ANY help.
