The book "Cracker Cavaliers" has index references
to: ( Smith, Pvt. John F. & Smith, Sgt. John ) and
( Smith, Pvt. Martin )
There are also many index reference to Company F as
well as Jonesboro.
My copy of this work is on loan to a friend at the
moment. So, I cannot provide details at this time.
I learned quite a bit about my ancestor
( Lt. James Elijah DeVaughn ) from this book.
He was also in Company F and from Jonesboro.
The book contains many references and citations. So,
if you are so inclined, it should assist you in
pursuing further detail. I hope you will keep me
( and my ancestor ) in mind if you uncover anything
of potential interest.
