I have be able to identify 11 veterans so far.  Eight of them fought for the South, my G-Great Uncle served in the Confederate Navy for about six months then resigned and became a blockade runner, he was captured and imprisoned at Ft. Warren, his father, my G-G-Great Grandfather, was also captured on board a blockade runner and was imprisoned at Ft. Warren.  These gentlemen are from my paternal Grandmother's side of the family.  From my maternal Grandmother's side, I have a G-Great Grandfather and two G-Great Uncles that served in Company F of the 46th Georgia.

On my paternal Grandfather's side or I guess you can say my direct line, I have identified three that served the Union.  One was in the 7th Connecticut Inf, one was a Chaplain for the 72nd Ill. Inf. and one was an Assistant Surgeon in the 8th N.Y National Guard.
