|Vance Harris||James William Howard|
Hello, this is in reference to the photograph of James William Howard that you posted on his findagrave memorial. I am thinking that maybe his military information, including his military marker might be slightly wrong. I think he might be the Private James W. Howard of Company B, 4th Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters who also enlisted in January 1864 just like your James William Howard. Company B, 4th Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters was also called "The Barnesville Blues" because all the members came from around the town of Barnesville. If you think this might be your ancestor, I am writing a book about the history of the 4th Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters and would love to include that picture in the book if possible. I will require a larger scan of it however, at least 300 dpi. Did James William Howard file for pension? I started looking for him because a source of mine stated they had found where a Private James M. Howard of the 4th Georgia Sharpshooters was an inmate at a Confederate Soldiers Home in Atlanta so I am thinking this might be your ancestor...he was not in Company A, at least as far as the service records show.
