Letter Listing Confederate Soldiers From Barboursville, Virginia (West Virginia).
By. Miss Valette Miller, Indianapolis, Ind.

The article by Dr. Charles A. Lattin, of Hastings, Fla., in the VETERAN for September interested me very much, but if he means that the men he names are all who enlisted from Barboursville, Va. (now West Virginia), at the beginning of the War between the States, I should like to say that his memory is at fault. My father, George Franklin Miller, a boy of sixteen at that time, was one of the first to enlist from Barboursville, and was also one of the Border Rangers. The list of names here given was furnished by my uncle, J. W. Miller, of Barboursville, and he mentions that all are dead except the last four.

Alec Samuels (killed at Jonesville, Va.), Lafayette Samuels, Maj. George McKendree, B. J. McComas, James Shelton, John Shelton, W. B. Moore, John Payne (killed at Hurricane), John Thornburg, Mark Smith, Will Hensley, John Williams, Ed Vertigans, Thomas Merritt, William Sweetland, George F. Miller, John Thornburg,- Baumgardner, George Vertigans, Jack Moore, Fred Baumgardner, Charles Lattin.
