Warren County, TN 1854 Tax List: McMinnville Civil District 9:
Moffett, J. R.; Moffitt, A. E. Private, Co. B, 35th Tennessee Infantry, Confederate States ofAmerica.
-- Enlisted September 6, 1861 at Camp Smartt by Capt.C. M. Forrest. This company was successively designated as Company C. Mountain Rifle Regiment Tennessee Volunteers; Captain Forrests's Company and Company B, 5th Tennessee Regiment Provisional Army; and Company B, 25th Regiment Tennessee Infantry.
The regiment was organized September 11, 1861, and accepted into the service of the Confederate States October 31,1861. It was known in the field as the 5th Tennessee Regiment Provisional Army and as the Mountain Rifle Regiment Tennessee Volunteers, but was officially designated the 35th Regiment Tennessee Infantry by the A. & I. G. O.
It was temporarily consolidated with the 48th (Nixon's) Regiment Tennessee Infantry by S. O. No. 3 Hd. Qrs.. Polk's Brigade, dated September 27,1863, until the latter was transferred to 48th (Voorhies') Regiment Tennessee Infantry by S. F. O. No. 46 Hd. Qrs. Army of Tennessee, dated July 14, 1864, but each company of the two organizations was mustered separately and under its original designation during the period covered by this consolidation.
About April 9, 1865, the 4th, 5th, 19th, 24th, 31st, 32nd, 35th,38th, and 41st Regiments Tennessee Infantry were consolidated and formed the 3d Consolidated Regiment Tennessee Infantry which was paroled at Greensboro, N. C., May 1, 1865
There is a J. R. Moffitt, Engineer Corps, died March 20th, 1864 recorded in the Record of Confederate Dead - Emory Cemetery (located at Emory and Henry College in Washington Co., VA). http://www.ehcweb.ehc.edu/emory/confederate.htm His military records from NARA say "see also 3 Confed Engr.Troops".
His last Muster Roll is for March & April 1864. Could this be him buried in Virginia? I just have a funny feeling that it is. 3rd Confederate Engineer Troops. Formerly known as "Premerton’s/Presetman's Battalion Engineer troops" http://ralphinla.rootsweb.com/cwunitc.htm
