Mom's Great Grandfathers:

Eli Ardoin, 28th (29th) Louisiana Infantry (discharged with illness, mentioned in the official records as "____ Ardoin" for messing with the conscriptors later in the war)

Thomas Pendergrast, 8th Louisiana Infantry (50 year old private, wounded in the abdomen at 1st Winchester and captured after town was recaptured, exchanged in time for the march north in 1863. His next battle up was second Battle of Winchester, he got sick the day of that engagement with hemroids and missed that charge.  Did make the charge to the top of  Cemetary Hill at Gettysburg but after that battle he was in the Confederate equivalent of the Invalid Corps mostly around Lynchburg until the end of the war).

Still researching Dad's Grear Grandfathers:

Alexander F. White, 9th Texas Cavalry, rode with Sul Ross and Forrest

William H. White, 13th (Waller's) Texas Cavalry Battalion, wounded  just before the Red River Campaign, shortly after joining.
