I have a relative named John Cason. The only info I have about him are:
Born ca 1824 in Georgia Live in Pike, Alabama in 1850 (per census) Married to Francis Elizabeth Scoggins (I have lots of info on her) Served for the CSA, and KIA in either 1863 or 1864
Searches turn up several people with this name. Is there any kind of "master list" where I can first plot out every single person with this name who fought (I figure it can't me more than a couple dozen at most), and then that way I can systematically go through them and eliminate them until I find my ancestor? My ultimate goal is to get a pension file, but I don't want to spend $25 on each file if they're not the right ones. Thanks for any help.
