Lacy Meadows Midgett - 1st Sergeant   
Joined 9/27/1862 in Cape Girardeau Co, MO, appointed First Sergeant 10/8/1862. He deserted (!) 8/18/1863, along with numerous other members of his company, apparently because they were dismounted and being transferred to the infantry. The FULTON COUNTY HISTORY (Kentucky) says he served in the 3rd Kentucky Regiment, CSA, so he probably returned to his home in Graves Co, KY to re-join there.
