9th Tennessee Cavalry Regiment

By E. J. Keen   1997

This information is compiled from pay voucher records, muster rolls and personal genealogical information that I have collected over the years.  The pay vouchers and some other data, such as; widows pension applications maybe found on micro-film at the Tennessee State Library & Archives in Nashville, Tennessee.  

I also consulted with the books:
"Sumner County, Tennessee In The Civil War", by Edwin L. Ferguson, 1972, Monroe County Press, Tompkinsville, Kentucky; "History of the Twentieth Tennessee Regiment Volunteer Infantry C.S.A." by W.J. McMurray, M.D., 1904, Nashville, Tennessee and "Morgan's Daring Raid *The Battle of Hartsville, Tennessee* December 7, 1862" by John Timothy Heath, 1997 (Lieutenant Commander, General Robert H. Hatton Camp SCV Lebanon, Tennessee) http://tennessee-scv.org/Camp723/

Also See: SCV Camp 1513 for the 9th Tennessee Cavalry at: http://tennessee-scv.org/Camp1513/9th.htm

Every effort was made to locate information on all known members of these regiments and companies but some of them I could not locate or learn more about them or their families.

Information contained herein is primarily intended to assist those seeking genealogical information as well as a taste for the hardships, etc. that these individuals endured trying to survive during the War Between the States 1861 - 1865.
