Hanover's Confederate Soldiers need first names.

There are a number of Hanover County, Virginia's sons whose names [last name and first initial] appear on the Hanover County Confederate Memorial on the Court House grounds.

The soldiers I am referring to have not been identified as to their first names or the company in which they served so they are listed only as "other infantry" or "other artillery" or "other cavalry".

We are trying to find out who they were and what "troop" they served in and we need your help to do this.

Please look this list over and identify those you can and refer this list to others who may be researching these Hanover surnames please.

They are:
Anderson, R. Artillery KIA
Arnold, C. Artillery
Marks, B. Artillery
Minor, B. Artillery
Perrin, J. Artillery KIA
Perrin, S. Artillery Died
Smith, S. Artillery
Thompson, W. Artillery
Terrell, J.Z. Cavalry
Tomkies, E.A. Cavalry
White, A. Cavalry
Atkinson, C.H. Infantry
Blanton, G. Infantry
Coleman, S. Infantry
Eddleton, M.T. Infantry
Glenn, I. Infantry
Hill, E. Infantry Died
Jackson, E.W. Infantry
Jones, G.A. Infantry Wounded
King, J. Infantry
Loving, J.W. Infantry
Martin, C. Infantry
Martin, J. Infantry
Pollard, A.E. Infantry KIA
Ruffin, S. Infantry
Smith L.R. Infantry KIA
Smith, W. Infantry
Spencer, C. Infantry Died
Travers, J. Infantry
White, C. Infantry

Historical accuracy and completeness is the goal so
any assistance would sure be appreciated.

Any other Hanover men who served the Confederacy whose
names you think were left off the monument, please reply also.

Thank you,
Gail Vass
