This website has more info on Company A http://38thga.com/drupal/node/175
Including pictures of headstones,burial locations and history. 'I did a check of his CSA service records and he died of Rubella, now commonly known as German measles, with no mention of any wounds. Lynchburg had a huge hospital complex of over a dozen major hospitals, because it had numerous tobacco warehouses and an access point to the railroad. Most of the soldiers who died there died of disease.' Dale Nichols expert historian from above website.

Records back up what Dale says above. Very doubtful he died from wounds when death records clearly state rubeola but may have taken part in the battles below.

May have participated in Battle of Gaines Mill or Malvern Hill. Unit took heavy fire during these battles and were asked to charge the enemy. They took heavy losses though they bravely carried out this attack.

He was the son of John Pryor Hall (1797-1838) and Mariah Louisa Turman (1808-1881) of Elbert Co.

Second Lieutenant James C. Hall, who was a brave and daring officer; fought through many battles, but was never wounded. He was good and kind to his men, and loved to be with the boys. After he was taken sick he would not consent to go to the hospital for several days. He left the command about the first of August, '62, above Orange C. H. Va. He was then taken to the hospital at Lynchburg, Va., where he died of typhoid fever in August 1862. Some of his friends dispatched to his wife of his condition, but she did not reach him until the day after his death. It was his desire that his remains should be sent home for burial, and his wife brought them home with her and buried him in the family burying ground near Goss.

William Joshua Croy - Private   
William was known to family and friends as W.J. and enlisted May 15, 1862 in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a member of Company N which became the New Company I. From June 10, 1862 to July 28, 1862 William was in a Confederate General Hospital in Petersburg, Va suffering from rubeola. Shortly after returning to service he was wounded in the head by grape shot during the Battle of 2nd Manassas. He was apparentley wounded again during the Battle of Gettysburg. The union army overtook a school used as a hospital in Chambersburg, Pa and as a result he became a prisoner of war. He was transferred to the Provost Marshal at Harrisburg, PA on August 17, 1863, forwarded to Philadelphia on August 18, 1863 and delivered to Fort Delaware Prison on August 19, 1863. He was eventually transferred to Point Lookout Prison in Maryland most likely in the fall of '63. He was present in a detachment of paroled and exchanged prisoners at Camp Lee near Richmond, Va on February 17, 1865. William suffered the rest of his life from epileptic spasms caused by his head wound.
