James,

That theory sounds better than the ones I've come up with over the years !! Oral family history handed down may have got the 2 men mixed up. Stories about the grandfather in the Union 8th Cav. say he was " Killed by bushwhackers and his body never found." In my research I found he died a P.O.W. in Va. in 1864. ( from his widow's pension ) Stories about James Carroll say he " died in one of the last battles around Richmond VIRGINIA !! Do you have a copy of that " incomplete " roster of Co.A ? It probably only has the names. I saw the James Carroll mentioned on the site about the 3rd Tenn.Mtd. Oh well, maybe you've helped me figure it out!!! It's fun to speculate and thanks again for your help

Glenn
