Re: 17th LA, Co. H Morehouse Southrons

Ms. Colleen, I found a post you made on GenForum and the information you provide seems to indicate this is the same man. I do believe you should contact the person who posted this. It would seem your answer may be hiding in Cass County, Texas.

I did do a search for Confederate pension he or his spouse may have filed in Louisiana or Texas but had no luck. To answer your question, I would doubt his full name is listed anywhere else in his service record or the NPS CWS&SS and Booth's Record of Louisiana Confederate Soldiers would show it.
