As you can see there is a Male on the 1840 and his name is on the 1850 census as 21. He moves to Florida and is shown on the 1860 census and served in the Confederate army from this state. Moves To Alabama on the 1870 census and then Floyd County, Georgia for 1880. Note the pension says he served in Company H the same as I have for his service.
