2 Camptons in the 26th Arkansas Inf.
I am researching two soldiers who enlisted in the 26th Arkansas Infantry Regiment during the Civil War.They are:
John T. CamptonCo. IPvt/Pvt
Enlisted 16 Jun 1862 at DeWitt, Arkansas County, Arkansas.Died at hospital 8 Sep 1862 in
Little Rock, Pulaski County, Arkansas.Born in Indiana.
Joseph CamptonCo. IPvt/Pvt
Enlisted 16 Jun 1862 at DeWitt, Arkansas County, Arkansas.Captured Dec 1862 and paroled
at Van Buren, Crawford County on 1 Jan 1863.Did not report back to regiment.
I have no genealogical connection to these men but am writing a book on their regiment.Any help in learning their dates/places of birth, death, and burial location would be greatly appreciated.
