Garner: My Great Grandad (Richard Henry Garner) and My Great Great Grandad (John P. Garner) were in the Bartow unit according to my records and family memory. However only John P. is shown in your muster list. Florida pension records prove that Richard H. was also in the unit as sworn by Bartow comrades John T. Vaughn and Charles Jill Dorrell. Richard joined in Savannah in 1863. (Dorrell is also not shown in your list) Richard and his widow received a pension from Florida because of his service in the unit. Richard moved to Florida in 1883 and died there in 1908. My Aunt says Richard and his dad fought side by side, father and son. The application says he surrendered with his unit at Greensboro, NC. My aunt also says they fought at Gettysburg but I am not sure about that. At any rate I would appreciate any information about John P. Garner and would hope you would make sure you are not missing Richard H. Garner from your list. Contact:John R. Garner III subhunley@cs.com John R.

C. --- private August 21, 1861. Transferred to Co. A, 22nd Battn. Ga. HeavyArtillery November 26, 1862. Appointed company Quartermaster October 1862. Paroled at Greensboro, N. C. May 3, 1865." This is my great grandfather, John Gossett. He shows up in the 1880 Spalding County, Georgia census. He is married to Sophia, 38 years old. John was 38 at the time and born in Georgia around 1842. Therefore he was probably 16 at the time he enlisted. I am still searching to find where he was born, his parents, etc. His son Ruben is 3 years old at the time of the census; Emmet is his twin. Ruben is my grandfather who died in 1933 in Atlanta. He was Army Cavalry and served in Cuba during the Spanish-American War and chased Poncho Villa through Mexico under General Jack "Black" Pershing. Any info you can direct me to would be appreciated. Anything I can send you, let me know.

(George Washington) Bright is my great great uncle. He was born April 20th, 1845. He served in Company A of the 22nd Battaliion, Georgia Heavy Artillery. He enlisted March 18th, 1863 in Macon, Georgia and was discharged April 9th, 1865. While on picket duty at Fort Jackson in Savannah, he was taken prisoner during the retreat from Savannah in 1864 (I have a letter describing the incident for anyone interested). He was taken to a union stockade at Hilton Head SC, and was released from there April 6th, 1865.(On one record he was listed as a deserter, but was vindicated after writing a letter concerning the incident to the Alabama Pensioners Bureau) In 1902 he and his family moved to Fruithurst, Cleburne County, Alabama. He lived there until his death on November 8th, 1927. He is buried at Mt. Paran Baptist Church Cemetery, which is located in Fruithurst, Cleburne County, Alabama. I have a variety of scanned docs (printed from microfilm) of his service record and where he wrote to the Alabama Pensions office, if anyone is interested in them. Also, if it's of interest, his father, John W. Bright was in the 44th GA Infantry (Company E, Freeman's Rangers), and was killed at the Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse, and is buried at the Confederate cemetery there. I'm interested in corresponding with anyone that is interested in the 22nd GA Artillery or the 44th GA Infantry, and would be very interested to see if anyone out there has any photos of these units.
