"Know ye, that Oliver Babbs a Private of Captain W. C. Harris' Company, (K) 38th Regiment of Illinois VOLUNTEERS who was enrolled on the twelfth day of August one thousand eight hundred and Sixty One to serve three years or during the war, is hereby Discharged from the service of the United States this Twenty Eighth day of February, 1864, at Ooltawah, Tennessee by reason of Re-Enlistment as a Veteran Volunteer. (No objection to his being re-enlisted is known to exist.) Said Oliver Babbs was born in Ohio County in the State of Indiana, is twenty years of age, Five feet Seven Inches high, Fair complexion, Gray eyes, Dark hair, and by occupation when enlisted, a Farmer.
Given at Ooltawah Tenn this Twenty Eighth day of February, 1864."
(signed) W. C. Harris and several others that I can't decipher.

At the end of the Civil War, Oliver Babbs was discharged near the Victoria, Victoria County, Texas area. He next migrated to Northwest, Caddo Parish, Louisiana, to become a resident of Oil City. Note, residing in Oil City, Caddo Parish, Louisiana, he never used again his given surname of "Babbs", and chose to use "Perry" as a substitute surname until his death.
