Information on these pages comes primarily from these sources:
1. Col. Oates' muster roll (William C. Oates, The War Between the Union and the Confederacy and its Lost Opportunities, with a History of the 15th Alabama Regiment and the Forty-eight Battles in Which it was Engaged). Some names appear on the roll several times, with various spellings. The age of enlistment as given on the roll often doesn't agree with Census records, however, this could be due to errors in transcription.
2. The Civil War Service Database provided by the Alabama Department of Archives and History.
3. The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, a project of the National Park Service, based on records maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration.
4. The research of the late Homer Jones of Ozark, Dale County, Alabama; Homer devoted many years to compiling records of Confederate soldiers buried in southeast Alabama.
5. U. S. Census records
6. Family databases on the Internet and information provided directly to me by relatives.
I've made an effort to locate and photograph the grave markers of all men buried in south Alabama. Please let me know of any errors you may find in these pages. I appreciate any additional information and photographs you can provide.
