David Ridge - Private   
If this is my g-g-g grandfather, he would have been 61 at the time he enlisted...and the David Ridge listed in northeast LA (Carroll Parish). If anyone has any means of checking this out, I would be interested to know.

Also...David Ridge is noted to have died February 24, 1862 in Pelican Camp... The only one I find listed is in Virginia.
Is there another?
