Civil War (Muster Roll for Co. F, 61st GA Infantry Regiment, provided by Keith Marshall)

Henry T. COMBS enlisted 15 Aug 1861*, killed at Cold Harbor 27 Jun 1862*.

KM Notes: Actually my research shows Henry T. COMBS enlisted in September 1861 near Savannah, a long way from Quitman County, and died in a Richmond hospital in 1863 after being wounded at Cold Harbor . Most of these boys were in their first battle, and their regiment suffered horrific casualties.
