From ancestry's civil war collection(possibly your relatives:

--------

Name: William J.M. Gardner ,
Residence: Randolph County, Georgia

Side Served: Confederacy
State Served: Georgia
Unit Numbers: 340 340 399 399
Service Record: Enlisted as a Private on 04 March 1862
Enlisted in Company B, 11th Bttn Regiment Georgia on 04 March 1862.
Transferred Company B, 11th Bttn Regiment Georgia on 12 May 1862
Transferred in Company B, 47th Infantry Regiment Georgia on 12 May 1862.
Surrendered Company B, 47th Infantry Regiment Georgia on 26 April 1865 in Greensboro, NC

Your posting caught my eye because of the link of the family to Horace Chase from Rhode Island. Horace was also a civil war veteran but he fought for the Union, the 1st ME Heavy Artillery and also the US Navy.
Must have been a strange situation at the wedding of Horace and Martha.
I do not have complete details regarding Horace due to the fact that he apparantly used an alias when he enlisted.
If I understand his Pension Index card correctly, his alias was Horace B. Chase and his real name was Hiram G. Chase.
His civil war record indicates that he signed up as a resident of, or to fill the quota for, my home town, York, Maine.

I am hopeful that you can shed some light on the names for me. And if you have a photograph of Horace / Hiram, I would love to see it.

Regards from Maine

Alex
