Duncan: I have recovered from the Flu finally. I checked but do not have Raffington's CSR, but have just about everything else on him. I have a feeler out to contact his descendant who I am sure has the CSR, but if not, we can surely order a copy. When I reviewed all of the Mississippi CSR I only made notes as to the ones killed or mortally wounded during the Campaign.
To date I can confirm the following as killed or mortally wounded at Mt. Carmel, Tennessee on November 29, 1864:
1st Miss. Cav. Co. B. Pvt. Wm. Benjamin Cole (mw) died Dec. 1864. *
28th Miss. Cav. Co. D. Capt. Evan S. J. Shelby (mw, died shortly afterwards in Dec. 1864.*
Cpl. Augustus Bolton Raffington killed. *
Pvt. Grant Bowen Yeager killed *
Co. G. Pvt. James Daniel Allen (mw) died Dec. 14, 1864 in a Confederate Field Hospital in Spring Hill, Tennessee and buried in the Spring Hill Cemetery, CSA Section, (large trench with unknown CSA burials).
There was a temp CSA hospital at Mt. Carmel until the Confederate Retreat back through this area on December 17th & 18th, 1864. I have a xerox of an old Franklin, Tennessee Newspaper article which states the Franklin Camp of United Confederate Veterans was considering removing the Confederate Burials from Mt. Carmel for reinternment to the McGavock Confederate Cemetery, (before the turn of the century). No further imformation appeared in the newspaper regarding this idea and no known records exist that confirms this action was taken. (If it had happened, we would have surviving material on it for sure).
I will make some xerox copies of all of this material and mail it to you. (Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address). Thanks so much, Tim
