CONFEDERATE NAVAL PERSONNEL, T - Z.

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index includes the names of Confederate States Navy and Marine Corps personnel, compiled from a number of published and unpublished sources.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 page only includes surnames from T to Z.  Other surnames will be found on previous and 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.

Watson left Union-occupied Key West in September 1861 and he enrolled in a Florida "Coast Guard" company at Cedar Key. In April 1862 this company was mustered into Confederate service as Company K, Seventh Florida Infantry Regiment.

Watson's unit participated in the Confederate invasion of Kentucky in 1862. On September 2, ill with fever, Watson was captured and paroled by Union troops at Boston, Kentucky. He returned to his unit in March 1863. During the rest of 1863, his unit campaigned primarily in east Tennessee. In September the unit fought in the bloody battle of Chickamauga, a Confederate victory, followed by defeat around Chattanooga, two months later. Watson and a number of men from his company were transferred to the Confederate States Navy in March 1864. He served aboard the CSS Savannah, and, for a few days, on the CSS Resolute until December of that year, when, upon the evacuation of Savannah, the ship was scuttled to prevent it from falling into Union hands.

Following the fall of Fort Fisher in January 1865, Watson traveled by rail to Richmond, Virginia, assisting in the defense of the James River. Watson accompanied Lee's Army of Northern Virginia when it evacuated the Confederate capital. He was captured by Federal forces on April 8, 1865, one day before the surrender at Appomattox.
