    This transcription is from the original Muster Roll that is part of the collection at the Alabama Dept. of Archives and History. I have closely looked at the original document along with photocopies graciously provided by ADHA. Given the age and wear of the document and the handwriting style changes in the ensuing century, it is possible that this nevertheless contains errors. I welcome any additional information or corrections to this transcription.

IMPORTANT  NOTE: Names in brackets are from additional sources and not listed in the actual
Muster Roll. Please contact me about corrections and/or additions.

Additional Information:

Coleman, Miriam. Coleman's was later included as a Private of Company F of the 36th in the lists of Confederate dead at Rock Island, Illinois. He was captured and died on January 14, 1864, as a Prisoner of War at the Rock Island camp. Coleman is buried in grave number 198. (Back to Muster Roll)

Nelson, John B. Although not on the May 13, 1862, Muster Roll, subsequent records show that John Nelson joined this company, was captured, and taken as a Prisoner of War to the Rock Island Prison Camp
in Illinois. He died on January 2, 1864, and is buried at Rock Island in grave number 101. (Back to Muster Roll)

The head of each grave was marked by a board with the name of the soldier, his state and his command, and a number. Col. R.L. Watkins copied the names and prepared a list that was later presented to Confederate Memorial Association March 18, 1876.
