The reader will perceive that the losses by death in this company were very great, unusually so. Thirty-nine deaths out of nintey-three men is largely over one-third, which I have found to be the average.
The company sufered greatly from sickness. The number of accidents is also somewhat
unusual. There must have been several awkward squads in the company. There appears also
to have been a fatality attending certain names. There were five Robersons in the company, three died of disease in Mississippi, and one was captured at Pulaski, Tenn. The other was
transferred in April, 1862, before the deaths of these, or he, too, mught have died. There were
three McManuses; one died in Union Prison, December, 1863
another was captured at Atlanta in August, 1864, and the other was wounded in a railroad collision in April, 1862, and discharged. There were two Matthewses; both died of disease in 1862, one at Charleston, S. C., March 10th, the other at Enterprise, Miss., July 18th. I observe a similar fatality attending certain name in Company B. There were eight Horns in that company, every one of whom suffered, two were killed in battle, four were wounded, and two died of disease.
Nor is this all; there were three Horns in CompanyC, and every one of them also suffered. One died of disease in June, 1862. One was wounded and disabled in November, 1863. One was killed in battle in September, 1863. Of eleven men named Horn in these two companies, three were killed in battle, five were wounded, and three died of disease.
Nor is this all yet; Captain Elijah W. Horne, of Company A, was wounded at Atlanta, making twelve of the name, every one of whom were sufferers. I observe, however, the 'e' as the final letter in Captain Horne's name, which the others have not.
