William F. Guerrant - Private   
Three of my ancestors enlisted in Company C, 44th Virginia Infantry Regiment on the same day, 6 June 1861. William F. Guerrant and John W. Guerrant (both of Buckingham County) were 1st cousins and mustered in as Privates. John H. Guerrant, a distant cousin from Goochland County, enlisted along with the other two on 6 June 1861 and took the rank of Quartermaster. I'm sure all 3 cousins knew each other and planned to enlist together.

Joseph W Parrish - Private   
Not necessarily my relative, but found him using Ancestry.com and the info was compiled by Ross Houston.

He was mustered in on 6 Aug 1861 at 'Isbell's Store' and I see that an Isbell is indeed a member of the 44th.

Mustered out on 21 Sep 1864 at Elmira, NY so I assume he was a prisoner at the time.

My great uncle. Born 1840, died August 21, 1861 in Pocahontas County, VA (now WVA). He was born and raised in Palmyra, Fluvanna Co. VA., attended the Fluvanna Military Institute and was a student for two years at the University of Virginia prior to Virginia's secession in April 1861.

I also have numerous old letters from Frank to various members of his family, and also his desk that he used while he was a student at UVA. He is buried at his mother’s family (Timberlake) home, Belle Air, in Albemarle Co. VA.
