Linda, the Alabama State Archives has a database of Confederates. The URL is www.archives.state.al.us/ In it, I found the 1920 Census of Confederate Soldiers giving the following information: Welburn D. Doster, b. 1841/02/18, USA, Georgia, Heard Co, discharged Meridan, MS, 41st GA, Co F, enlisted Greensville, GA, Private, address in 1921: Box 3, Wetumpka, AL. Enlisted in the fall of 1860. HEARD CO, GA - Henderson Doster who married Mary "Polly" Childs in Jones Co, GA, was in Heard Co in 1840, 1850 and 1860. Think this is your ancestor. Sorry to mislead you on the Thomas of Coweta group.
