Re: Vet look-up - Childers
Posted by: Michael Nichols (ID *****4099) Date: January 30, 2009 at 21:02:53
In Reply to: Vet look-up - Childers by Art Dube of 553

1st Alabama 12 Month Volunteer Regiment "Coffey's" (Colonel John R. Coffey)

Company I "Earle's" (Captain R. G. Earle)

Later it became Smith's Company under Captain Eliphas T. Smith on June 27, 1846 when Captain Earle was promoted out of the unit.

Mustered into federal service on June 13, 1846 at Mobile, Alabama. Mustered out at New Orleans, Louisiana on May 25, 1847.

There is one "Childers" surname listed with this unit:

Jackson J. Childers - Muster rolls dated October 31 and December 31, 1846 note this man has not received commutation for clothing. Muster roll from December 31, 1846 also notes this man sick in hospital at Tampico since December 22, 1846. Was discharged on February 27, 1847.


1st Alabama 12 Month Volunteer Regiment "Coffey's" (Colonel John R. Coffey)

Company F "Jone's" (Captain Richard W. Jones)

Another "Childers" to consider:

Jefferson Childers - Muster roll dated December 31, 1846 notes this man was sick at Point Isabel since December 13, 1846.

Hope this helps!

Mike Nichols
