FELAND, LAFAYETTE F, Co B, private, enlisted by Lieutenant Crockett at Paducah, KY on 1/2/64 and mustered at Columbus, KY on 6/29/64 at age 24/ 27.  He was 5’11” tall, dark complexion, dark eyes, dark hair, a farmer born in Trigg Co, KY (4/6/1837) and was due a $300 bounty for enlistment.  Reported AWOL at Mayfield, KY on 8/17/64, Feland was promoted to corporal less than a month later so he may have been AWL.  The record mentions that he was sent somewhere to get a change of clothes for 13 men.  He was discharged with the regiment when it disbanded at Nashville, TN on 8/9/65.  Feland, the son of James Allen and Mary Stahl Feland, married Aseneth Emeline Colley in 1860.  He applied for an invalid pension in 1890.  He lived in Wingo, Graves Co, KY until 1903 when he moved to be near family.  Feland died on 6/1/1917 at Stafford, AR (pension) is buried in the Doxey Cemetery in Sayre, OK.  MR #594

FERGUSON, JAMES (K) P(OLK), Companies K & C, private, enlisted for 3 years by Captain Beatty in Henderson Co, TN on 5/29/63 at age 18.  He was 5’7” tall, dark complexion, hazel eyes, light hair, a farmer, born in Henderson Co, TN and a resident thereof in 1860.  His records say he was released on 9/24/64 but names no prison.  Ferguson filed for an invalid pension in 1890 and died on 5/17/1922 in Reagan, TN.  He is buried in New Hope Cemetery in Henderson Co, TN with a military marker..  In His widow Elizabeth Ferguson filed for a pension in 1922.  MR #595

FINCH, ADAM, Co L, private.  His record says that there is no evidence for Co L or Finch.  Most likely he was captured with the regiment at Union City, TN on 3/24/64 and taken to Andersonville Prison in Georgia.  He died there on 9/12/64 of scrobutus and is buried in grave #8555 with a 7th Tennessee Cavalry marker.  Finch was the son of Jarrett and Elizabeth Hill Finch.  He married Elizabeth P Warren in 1856 in Weakley Co, TN.  His widow filed for a pension in 1888 while living in Tennessee and it was granted.  Finch had a brother in a Kentucky Union regiment.  No MR #

FINCH, HAMPTON, Co I, corporal/sergeant, enlisted for 3 years in Buena Vista, TN on 9/20/63 and mustered at Union City, TN on 12/15/63 at about 35/39.  He was 6’1” tall, dark complexion, blue eyes, black hair, a resident of Carroll Co, TN.  He furnished his own horse and equipment.  Presumed captured with the regiment at Union City, TN on 3/24/64, he spent time in Andersonville Prison in Georgia where he died on 7/21/64 of acute diarrhea.  He is buried in grave #3733 in the Andersonville National Cemetery.  Finch’s mother, Dovie Finch, filed for a pension on his service in 1870 but it was denied.  MR #596

FINCH, ISAAC B, Co B, private, enlisted for 3 years in Carroll Co, TN on 8/15/62 and mustered in Benton Co, TN on 8/17/62 at about 32 years of age.  He was born in North Carolina but was a resident of Carroll Co, TN in 1860.  He furnished his own horse and equipment.  Finch is presumed captured with the regiment at Union City, TN on 3/24/64 and taken to Andersonville Prison in Georgia where he died on either 9/30/64 or 10/1/64 (both dates in records) of scrobutus.  He was buried in grave #10133 in the Andersonville National Cemetery. Finch, who married Purity A Cooper in 1851, is assumed to be the son of Williamson and Mary Finch of Montgomery Co, NC.  The Sarah Finch who applied for a widow's pension in 1865 may also be a wife.  MR #597

FISHER, HENRY B, Co I, private, enlisted for 1 year and mustered on 1/12/65 at Paducah, KY at age 21 or 27.  Fisher was a refugee resident of Magnolia, IL at the time of his enlistment.  He was 5’8” tall, fair complexion, blue eyes, light hair, a farmer, born in Gibson Co, TN.  Fisher was AWOL from Paducah, KY by 5/2/65 and has no discharge on his muster rolls.  MR #598

FLIPPIN, GEORGE, Co C, private, enlisted by Lieutenant Neely for 1 year at Paducah, KY on 3/1/65 and mustered at Nashville, TN on 8/5/65 just before the regiment disbanded on 8/9/65.  He was 19 years old, 6’ tall, black eyes, brown hair.  He received a $33.33 bounty for enlistment.  Flippin had been a Confederate soldier before changing sides late in the war.  He resided in an area of Gibson Co, TN called Skullbone, an area with a bad reputation, especially among Confederates.  The “Nashville Banner” of February 26, 1869 reported that George Flippin, John Flippin and Cal Ury took a mule from Fredrick H Henderson of Carroll Co, TN.  This animal, the trio said, had been taken from them during the war.  Friends of Henderson followed them and a gunfight ensued.  George Flippin was killed plus John Flippin and Cal Ury were wounded.  This would have been in December 1868 when Flippin was about 21.  Grudges from the war were still held and tempers were still very hot.  The Carroll Co, TN Sheriff who had to deal with all this was the Lieutenant Neely, who enlisted Flippin in 1865.  Flippin’s parents seem to be J L and Sarah Flippin.  MR #600

FLOWERS, HENRY, Co C, private, enlisted for 3 years in Lexington, TN on 8/28/62 and mustered by Captain Hayes on 9/5/62 at Jackson, TN at age 26 or 27.  He was 5’9” tall, sallow complexion, grey eyes, dark hair, a farmer, born in Anson Co, NC.  He apparently had contracted Tuberculosis in both lungs even before enlistment and was discharged on disability at the parole camp in Columbus, OH (Camp Chase) on 3/11/63.  Flowers applied for an invalid pension in 1886 and his wife applied after his death.  MR #601

FLOWERS, JAMES, Co K, private, enlisted in Gibson Co, TN on 5/1/63 at age 24.  He was 5’10” tall, dark complexion, black eyes, black hair, a farmer, born in Gibson Co, TN.  He was AWOL from 4/15/63 through June 1863 and there is no record of a return to duty.  MR #602

FOREST (FORREST), JAMES S (G), Companies B & A, private, enlisted for 3 years in Carroll Co, TN on 8/24/62 and mustered at Humboldt, TN on 8/26/62 at age 27.  He was due a $100 bounty for enlistment.  AWOL from April 1863 through June 1863, he had returned by 1/1/64.  In September and October of that year he was acting orderly for Colonel McArthur who commanded the fort at Columbus, KY.  This indicates that Forrest was not captured at Union City, TN with the regiment in March 1864.  He mustered out with the regiment at Nashville, TN on 8/9/65.  Forrest applied for an invalid pension in 1889.  His wife applied for a widow's pension after his death.  MR #603

FOWLER, GREEN L, Co C, private, enlisted for 3 years in Lexington, TN.  He furnished his own horse and equipment.  He is presumed to have been captured with the regiment at Union City, TN on 3/24/64 since he spent time in Andersonville Prison in Georgia.  He was exchanged through Vicksburg, MS with other members of the regiment who were in Andersonville.  He was one of the six members of the 7th Tennessee who died on the ill-fated steamer “Sultana” upstream from Memphis, TN on 4/27/65.  His muster roll seems to indicate that his destination was Cairo, IL.  His wife applied for a widows pension in 1870.   MR #606

FRANCISCO, ROBERT, Co B, private, enlisted for 3 years in Union City, TN on 12/15/63 at age 26.  He was 5’10” tall, fair complexion, blue eyes, brown hair, a farmer, born in Benton Co, TN.  His muster roll lists him as present in January and February 1864.  Presumed captured with the regiment at Union City, TN on 3/24/64, Francisco spent time in Andersonville Prison in Georgia and died there on 6/26/64 of acute diarrhea.  He was buried in grave #2506 in the Andersonville National Cemetery.  The New York Times death list gave him as R. Francisco.  He appears to be the son of George and Margaret Francisco of Benton Co, TN.  MR #607

FREDERICK, BENJAMIN OR BENNETT (S, F or T), Co C, private, enlisted for 3 years by Captain Martin at Paducah, KY on 5/1/64 at age 19.  He was 5’5” tall, dark complexion, hazel eyes, dark hair, a farmer, born in Marion Co, KY.  He received a bounty for enlistment.  Hospitalized in September and October 1864, he died of pneumonia and rubella at the Paducah, KY Post Hospital on 4/22/65.  He was buried in the Mound City Illinois National Cemetery in grave #H-4749.  The Roll of Honor has his name reversed  as Frederick Benjamin.  MR #609

FREEMAN, DANIEL D, Companies H & C, private, enlisted for 3 years in Lexington, TN on 1/10/63 at age 17.  He furnished his own horse and equipment and received a $100 bounty for enlistment.  A resident of Henderson Co, TN, he seems to be a son of David and Sarah Taylor Freeman, probably born in Fayette Co, AL.  There is little in his muster roll except that he “escaped 11/10/64” and was in the “hospital at Mound City, IL till 3/13/65.”  It is not clear from the records from whom he escaped.  A disposition for pension by Wiley Boman, however, mentions that he and Freeman were shot and captured in Decatur Co, TN in July 1864 by the 10th Tennessee Cavalry CSA.  Perhaps Freeman escaped from this group.  Returning to the regiment he was discharged when it disbanded at Nashville, TN on 8/9/65.  In 1876 Freeman testified as to which private citizens of Henderson Station, TN had participated in a raid that destroyed the station and property of loyal citizens on 11/25/1862.  The men he named were heavily fined by the US Government.  MR #611

FREEMAN, ELIJAH C, Co F, private/sergeant, enlisted for 1 year in Huntingdon, TN on 8/20/62 and mustered on 9/24/62 at age 35.  He was 5’7” tall, dark complexion, hazel eyes, black hair, born in Carroll Co, TN, a grocer/merchant, and resident of Carroll Co, TN.  He furnished his own horse and equipment.  Appointed a sergeant on 9/24/62, Freeman served as a company clerk for Colonel Hawkins.  Discharged in Nashville, TN at the end of his one year enlistment, Freeman and his wife Elizabeth King Freeman (m. 1854) seem to have left Carroll Co, TN.  He is buried, however, in the Oak Hill Cemetery in Huntingdon, TN and has a military marker, which unfortunately has no dates.  There is a minor pension application on his service for Hattie Traywick, et al, entered in 1892.  MR #612

FREEMAN, THOMAS E (G), Companies F, B & A, private, enlisted for 3 years in Saulsbury, TN on 7/25/63 at age 18.  He was due a $100 bounty for enlistment.  Freeman had first been a recruit for Co F, a one year company.  He was detached as an orderly for Colonel McArthur, the commander of the post at Columbus, KY, which indicates Freeman was not with the regiment when it was captured in Union City, TN.   Nothing else is in his muster rolls.  He applied for an invalid pension in 1884.  His wife applied for a widow's pension.  MR #613

FREEMAN, WILLIAM, Co C, private, enlisted and mustered in Jackson, TN on 9/5/62.  He was AWOL by 11/15/62 at Trenton, TN and absent again, or still absent, in April 1863.  There is no further information in his muster rolls.  MR #614

FRENCH, GEORGE, Co A.  This man applied for an invalid pension in the 1880s but it was denied.  He has no records in the muster rolls of the 7th Tennessee.

FRENCH, RICHARD E(LY), Co B, private, enlisted for 3 years in Carroll Co, TN on 8/10/62 and mustered in Benton Co, TN on 8/17/62 at age 29 (muster roll) or 38 (census).  He was 5’9 ¼” tall, fair complexion, blue eyes, dark hair, a farmer, born in Stewart Co, TN but a resident of Carroll Co, TN in 1860.  He was captured and paroled in Henderson Co, TN during/or after the battle of Lexington, TN on 12/18/62.  French was detached and serving in Paducah, KY on 3/24/64 when the regiment was captured at Union City, TN on 3/24/64.  Paducah was attacked the next day, however, and French was killed in action on 3/25/64.  He is one of only three men of the 7th Tennessee known to have been killed in action.  He was buried in the National Cemetery in Cairo, IL.  The son of Gideon Richard and Rebecca Angeline Anderson French, he was the husband of Mary Francis Moore French (m. 1845).  She applied for a widow’s pension in 1867, which was granted by June 1871.  In 1883 she lived in Marlborough, TN and was receiving $8.00 per month, the standard allotment at the time for the widow of a private.  She later moved to Van Buren, Arkansas.  MR #615

FRIZELL (FRIZZELL), ABRAHAM, Co C, private, enlisted for 3 years and mustered at Jackson, TN on 9/5/62 at age 29.  A resident of Henderson Co, TN in 1860, he furnished his own horse and equipment.  By 3/1/63 he was AWOL, said to be a result of sickness.  He returned in time to be captured with the regiment at Union City, TN on 3/24/64 and taken to Andersonville Prison in Georgia.  He died there on 9/15/64 according to the muster rolls.  His wife, Jane Hays Frizell, is buried in the Bible Hill Cemetery in Decatur Co, TN.  Her tombstone says that Frizzell died in Charleston, SC.  Jane Frizzell applied for a widow’s pension by Oct 1874.  In 1883 she lived in Decaturville, TN and received $8.00 per month, the standard allotment at the time for the widow of a private.  Frizzell was the son of James Sanders and Martha Francis Jones Frizzell of Coffee Co, TN.  He was brother to George Newton Frizzell and Thomas J Frizzell, both of whom enlisted in Co C at the same time and place.  MR # 618

FRIZELL (FRIZZELL), GEORGE N(EWTON), Co C, sergeant, enlisted for 3 years and mustered at Jackson, TN on 9/5/62 at age 19.  He was 6’ tall, light complexion, grey eyes, light hair, a farmer, born in Coffee Co, TN on 4/22/1843 but a resident of Henderson Co, TN in 1860.  Presumed captured with the regiment at Union City, TN on 3/24/64, he spent time in Andersonville Prison in Georgia.  Exchanged through Jacksonville, FL in April 1865, Frizzell was taken first to Maryland then to Camp Chase, OH.  He mustered out on 7/3/65 at Camp Chase, undoubtedly due to disability from prison hardships.  He married Martha Melvina Hendrix in 1867 in Henderson Co, TN.  Frizzell was granted an invalid pension in November 1882.  At that time he lived at Poplar Spring in Henderson Co, TN.  By the 1890 veterans’ census he had moved to Farmersville, Collin Co, TX.  In the census, Frizzell complained about lasting effects from scurvy contracted during his imprisonment, as he had also mentioned in his pension application.  Frizzell died in Farmersville, TX in December 1916.  He is buried in the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Cemetery in Farmersville, TX.  His wife applied for a widow's pension in 1916.  MR #619
