My guess is that the Robert A. Lampkin you identified was a brother of my great-grandmother. I believe this because Co. F of the 24th Infantry was a unit from Gwinnett Co., GA, and that is where my Lamkin ancestors lived. There was only one Lamkin family there by 1850 (mine), and in it there were four brothers: William Franklin, James T., Augustus, and George W. (these names are from the 1850 census). If you look in the roster of Co. B of Cobb's Legion, you will see a James T. and William Lamkin along with Robert A. I am supposing that these three were brothers and that Robert A. was really Augustus.
I know something of James T., who later lived in Lawrenceville, but I have never learned what happened to William or Augustus. Neither seems to have returned after the war. Do you have any clue about Robert A.?
Thanks for any help.
