FOOTNOTE 1: Joseph S. VINSON
from Debbie Quattrin
Joseph S. VINSON, a resident of Houston County and my great-great grandfather, entered the Confederacy on 27 May 1861 as a Private; he was 17 years old. He was enlisted with Company C, 6th Regiment GA Infantry under Col. Colquitt. Joseph was wounded on 31 May 1862 at the Battle of Seven Pines in Virginia when an ammo ball passed through his left thigh and then struck the bone in his right thigh. He was transferred to Company G, 62nd GA Calvary on 1 Jun 1864 and that unit's name was changed to Company G, 8th GA Calvary on 11 Jul 1864. Joseph is on a roll dated 20 Apr 1865 of officers and men paroled. He was honorably discharged on 26 Apr 1865.
Joseph S. Vinson is buried in Bason Cemetery, Stevens Street, Warner Robins (Houston County), GA

8th Cavalry Regiment was organized in July, 1864, by consolidating seven companies of the 62nd Regiment and three of the 20th Battalion Georgia Partisan Rangers. It served in J. Dearing's Brigade in the Army of Northern Virginia and was active in the Petersburg siege north and south of the James River and around Appomattox. The unit cut through the Federal lines at Appomattox Court House and disbanded April 11, 1865. Company G was attached to the Department of North Carolina and Southern Virginia, saw action in the Battle of Bentonville, and surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. Its commanders were Colonel Joel R. Griffin, Lieutenant Colonel John W. Millen, and Major William G. Thomson.
