CONFEDERATE NAVAL AND MARINE CORPS PERSONNEL, A - G.

Compiled by Terry Foenander.




The following biographical index includes the names of Confederate States Navy and Marine Corps personnel, compiled from a number of published and unpublished sources.

Over the past few years I have extracted the names and details of these personnel from those sources and added them to this alphabetically arranged database, intending to compile a list of all, or as many personnel who served in the Confederate naval services, as is possible from existing sources. Because of the destruction of many of the Confederate records at the end of the war, this will most likely be an impossible task.

The major source of many of the names included here are the rosters as included in Series 2, Volume 1, of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Navies in the War of the Rebellion. However, it should be noted that some of the names in this source may have been incorrectly copied during compilation, as errors in spelling of some names have been detected, when compared to other sources. Where possible, an attempt to correct these have been made, but errors in other names may have occurred that have not been detected. All entries which have been extracted from the Official Records include the series, volume and page number. Other entries include volume and page number, or just the page number, as indicated. Reference notes to all sources consulted follows the end of the listing. The list on this first page only includes surnames from A to G.  Other surnames will be found on subsequent pages.

The project, is, of course, far from complete, and only a small percentage of names from some of the sources consulted have been included, so far. It should also be noted that some of the names from this author's other pages, have not yet been added to this database, and will be at a later stage. The pages will be updated at irregular intervals, as time permits. It is hoped that this source will assist researchers of the Confederate Naval and Marine Corps services in a small way. Additional information from viewers is most welcome.
