Give me the initials of your Neblett. He may be one of those listed. Dan W., Cpl., Jones D., Joseph J., & William R. of Co. H, or Robert C. & Walter S., all Pvt.of Co. A.

The names of soldiers in Tennesseans in the Civil War was taken from the National Archives Compiled Service Records.

The CSR's show the man's rank at either enlistment or at the last muster, i.e., first and last. It is quite possible that one could enlist as a Pvt., advance to Officer's status, and revert to Pvt. later.

This could have occured on reorganization of army in May 1862.

However, most officers not reelected simply resigned and went home. Few remained in the ranks. Enlisted personnel were not allowed this privelage.

Pvt. George A. Norfleet appears in Co. H and four others in Co. G. Also, an Ass't Surgeon, Thomas J. Norfleet was on the Field and Staff of the 14th.
