Richard, I appreciate your input and so you are saying all the records that I have found are incorrect? If so, then maybe I have been looking in the wrong place. Here are my references: http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/regiments.cfm
. Most of the Newsom's listed were brothers living in Claiborne Parish, in Co. B 19th Inf. Another reference is the "Records of LA Confederate Soldiers & Commands, Vol. III, Book 1 page 1276, and Ancestry. I also found information on one of the Camp Moore sites.
I would appreciate any informaion you can give me on how to follow-up on the units you have referenced.
