Re: Soldier killed at Murfreesboro, Brooks

In Reply to: Soldier killed at Murfreesboro, Brooks by Marsha Guerard of 41083

Marsha: You can email the Tennessee State Library and Archives and they will do a name search in "Tennesseans in the Civil War" - give all the pertinent information. This book was gleaned from surviving Confederate records plus other sources but still likely it isn't 100% complete. However it's probably the best you'll get. Unfortunately, John Brooks is a VERY common name but IF this fellow was actually an officer plus killed in action relatively early on, then that narrows it down. Personally, I wouldn't take that Burke's statement to the bank. Here is a link with instructions:

Hope this helps. Rick

PS: I'm making a couple of assumtions, one, that he served in a Tennessee unit and, two, that he actually went by John or John T.and not by Thomas or Tom or some such name (a possibility).
