7th Tennessee Cavalry USA

GREEN, J(AMES) D R, Co I, private, enlisted for 3 years in Carroll Co, TN on 9/20/63 and mustered at Union City, TN on 12/15/63. He furnished his own horse and equipment. There is little information in his files and what is there is confusing. It says "AWOL denied," and "no record after 2/28/64." But there is a discharge date of 6/16/65. He might have been at Andersonville Prison in Georgia, which would explain the early discharge date. This is probably the record of James, son of David and Elizabeth Green of Hollow Rock, TN. If so, he married Elizabeth Liles in Carroll Co in 1864 and went by James D Green. Other members of this family sometimes used three initials. MR #6904 2 5 6
