I family member sent me some papers with an original furlough and I need some help in tracing the name.
It is a printed form ref: Gen'l. Order No. 69, A.& I. G's. Office, dated Richmond, Va. May 28th, 1863
Written in pencil and thus hard to read:
War (hard to read) Hospital, Canton, Mis, Feb 28th, 1865
Prvt. J. N. Clanton, Co. B, Woods Regiment, Woods Brigade
Furloughed for sixty days to Senatobia, Desoto County, State of Mis
Signed by J. Wilson, Surg.
Senatobia makes sense for my family, as my ggg grandmother, is buried there. I don't recognize the name Clanton. Does anyone have access to a roll of Co. B, Woods Regt., Woods Brigade in late 1864 or early 1865? Is there a Prvt. Clanton or a name similar to Clanton?
