Pat, I just had a book on Confederate army colonels published ("Confederate Colonels", U of MO Press) which contains the following article on your ancestor Col. Hart:
Hart, John R. Born c. 1831, NC. Farmer and minister in Sardis, Floyd Co., GA. Md. Agnes ___. Capt. Co. G ("Sardis Volunteers, a unit largely made up of his parishioners), 21st GA, May 9, 1861. Capt. Co. G, Smith's GA Legion Cav., May 8, 1862. Lt. Col., July 12, 1862. Col., 6th GA Cav., March 6, 1863. WIA July 21, 1864, near Atlanta. Paroled May 3, 1865, Charlotte. Arrested by federal authorities in 1865 on charges his men murdered 2 federal prisoners, but soon released. "Drummer" for an Atlanta newspaper, in Rome, GA, and in Morgan Co. postwar. Attorney in Upson Co. Died June 1, 1878, Floyd Co. Buried Myrtle Hill Cemetery, Rome. Col. J. C. Nisbet thought Hart "a gallant soldier, a dashing cavalryman, if he did 'love licker' and would at times imbibe too freely.

Do you have the maiden name of his wife Agnes? any other info would be much appreciated.
