"I am trying to authenticate my ancestor's involvement in the 9th Georgia. His name was Joseph Crandal Bailey and he has a special tombstone recognizing him as being in Company E, 9th Georgia Regiment, Confederate States Army. I have been searching relentlessly but have not located him on any muster rolls. Help! Thanks!"
This is probably unit designation confusion. There is a Joseph C. Bailey in the 9th BATTALION GEORGIA ARTILLERY. He was in Company A and later E. That's a lot of coincidence: same name, same Company, same numerical designation (9th Artillery vs. 9th Infantry.) Do you think this may be him? This was in the NPS Soldiers and Sailors database......
