Company E
Zachariah T Williams - Private   
Also known as 'Zacky T', he was from Madison Co. (Danielsville) and started with Randolf Rangers which became the 24th Cav Battalion until it got combined into the 7th Ga Cav on Feb 13, 1864.

My Dad says 'Grampa Zachy walked back from Petersburg with some of the horses & mules just before the rest left to cover R.E.Lee's withdrawal from Richmond' Notes say he had lost his hearing in August 1864, due to a cannon shell exploding only 6ft away, at Ream's Station.

Lots of details of the Regiment in a small book called 'The Gallant Little 7th' by John W. Latty, Broadfoot Publishing, Wilmington NC ; he is on page 128 and something about 'Randolf Rangers' is on page 31

William R. Logan - Captain   
Captain William R. was the commander of Co. G, in Col Isaac Avery's 4th Regiment Georgia Volunteer Cavalry, CSA. He joined in 1862, but the exact date is unknown. The regiment was originally formed as the 23d Battalion Georgia Cavalry, Georgia Dragoons. Cpt Logan saw action in the Middle Tennessee Campaigns and was at Chickamauga, Chattanooga and Knoxville. He was shot above the knee on May 14, 1864 in a skirmish a few miles below Resaca. His leg was amputated the next day. (Jonesboro) This amputation never healed properly and caused much agony the rest of his life. It may have led to his insanity and death at a young age.
