Joseph White Lanier - Private   
Enlisted at Mt. Sterling, AL on 8/1/1863 for 3 years or duration of the war. On his Nov/Dec of 1863 Roll Call, it states he was 'Absent with train in GA by accident war'. Doesn't make much sense to me. His next 3 and last service pages state that he was deceased and the QM received $3.30 of his personal affects. Doesn't state anything as to how or what caused his death. I have researched train accidents in GA in 1863 and 1864, but haven't had any luck finding anything.
