"I checked the CWSS site and found your James Farley (Colored). He was 1 of 2,225 recorded as being with the 25th Tenn Cav. There was also John Cumins and a John Cummings perhaps the same person listed as a waiter. If he too was "colored" that would make 2 out of 2,225. I viewed all 2,225 from Aarons, Robert to Young, Martin.
How many did I miss?"
I don' know. I haven't searched that unit except for the one name (Farley) found by index.
I've searched about 1/3 of that unit and found 8.
What's up with that?"
Like I said, race is usually not listed with indexed names. The full record has to be examined and I have access to the service records not just the index.
Remember, whether cook or teamster if they were ENLISTED they were soldiers.
