American Civil War Ancestors
Patrilineal Confederate Veterans

Among my paternal ancestors, I found 11 Confederate veterans in three families; the BOX, HIGH, and NORMAN families.

Another 5 Confederate veterans have been provisionally identified from the ELLIOTT family.

There are likely more but I do not have relevant data on my CURETON, HILL, and JONES family ancestry.

The list was initially limited to ancestral 'fathers' and 'uncles'; but, various 1st and 2nd cousins n-times removed are beginning to be post.

On a separate webpage, Patrilineal Confederate Veteran, information regarding
  • names, units, and familial relationships
  • some notable facts about or connections between these Confederate veterans
  • 'Regiments Served' with the corresponding trooper(s) or soldier(s)
    can be found.

  • Matrilineal Confederate Veterans

    Among my maternal ancestors, I found 16 Confederate veterans in four families; the ESTES, FRANKLIN, MURPHY, SWEATT, and WILLIAMS families.

    American Civil War Soldiers' Stories for my two maternal 2nd great-granduncles
  • Sergeant Aaron R. Estes, Company B, 10th Texas Infantry Regiment
  • Private Edward Burleson Estes, Company A, 7th Texas Infantry Regiment
    are found on a separate webpages.

  • __Franklin Confederate Veterans__
    American Civil War Soldiers' Stories for three maternal 2nd great-granduncles
  • Private Cicero Davenport Franklin, Company H, 5th Florida Infantry Regiment
  • Private Francis Marion Franklin, Company A, 2nd Florida Cavalry Regiment
  • Private Leonidas W. Franklin, Company E, 3rd Florida Infantry Regiment
    are found on separate webpages.

    Family history reports that Benjamin DeKlab Franklin, my maternal 2nd grandfather, served in the American Civil War, as an irregular / guerrilla / partisan Confederate officer [he was known in later life as 'Captain' Franklin] and/or spy who " . . . would put on old clothes and go north preaching to gain information for the Southern Army and locate supplies". No documentation has been found.
    But, that is another story to be detailed later.

    Thomas J. Franklin, the youngest of three half 2nd great-granduncles, is suspected to have been exempt from Confederate service [as specified in the Confederate Conscription Acts] either because he was
  • a river transport worker
       [Russell County, Alabama, censuses report he was a riverboat steward and,
       later, riverboat captain]
       or
  • employed at the Confederate Navy [iron clad] Ship Yard in Columbus,
       Georgia, just across the Chattahoochee River from Russell County, Alabama,
       his reported residence in the 1860 and 1870 censuses.

  • __SWEATT Confederate Veterans__
    Three Confederate soldiers have been identified among my SWEATT ancestors.

    The identification is based on the ancestor's
  • name matching to a soldier reported in the US National Park Service Civil War Soldiers System
  • birth year being appropriate for Confederate Army service; ie, males born between
       1814 and 1847 were liable for compulsory service in the Confederate Army
  • reported residence [ eg, 1850, 1860, or 1870 US Census ] matching the county in which
       the associated company-regiment was raised / formed.
    Additionally, brothers or cousins in the same company-regiment is further validation.

    As time permits, the US National Archives compiled military service records of these Confederate soldiers will be obtained and researched for information to confirm or disprove the match.
