6th Cavalry Regiment was formed in the spring of 1863 by consolidating the cavalry battalion of Smith's Georgia Legion and four independent cavalry companies. During the conflict it served in Davidson's, J.J. Morrison's, C.C. Crews', and Iverson's Brigade. The unit was active at Chickamauga and Philadelphia, participated in the Knoxville and Atlanta Campaigns, then took part in the defense of Savannah and the campaign in the Carolinas. During April, 1865, it surrendered with the Army of Tennessee. Its commanding officers were Colonel John R. Hart, Lieutenant Colonels B.F. Brown and Joel C. Fain, and Majors Alfred F. Bale and John T. Burns.

He was married to Marie Evans, daughter of Hugh and Lucy Evans. Marie died before 1900, most likley in McLennan Co TX. They had a daughter named Susan and a daughter named Mary.

He is buried near his nephew, Everett Murdock.
