Brice Collins - Private   
Brice Collins, Born: 25 Feb 1835, Died: 17 Jul 1863, enlisted on 14 Aug 1862 at Danville, VA as a Private. He was drafted into Company B of the 18th Virginia Infantry Regiment. He never reported to the Company for duty because of illness. He died from the measles at Camp Lee, Richmond, Virginia. Brice's actual date of death is uncertain. The date of death on his headstone/memorial marker in the family cemetery is 07 Jul 1863. It is very well possible and conceivable that his headstone is a 'cenotaph'. Some sources/record list Brice Collins as being assigned to Company B of the 38th Regiment, Virginia Infantry and some sources list him as being assigned to Company B of the 18th Regiment, Virginia Infantry. Records placing him in Company B of the 18th Regiment, Virginia Infantry provide more in reference to his illness which is verified in the letters written to his wife, Christine Ann, 'Christie', prior to his death. Although he never reported for duty the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System list him in Company B, 18th Regiment, Virginia Infantry. Source: Regimental Soldiers and History: List of Soldiers; Regiment: 18th Infantry Regiment, Virginia, Date of Organization: 15 May 1861, Muster Date: 9 Apr 1865, Regiment State: Virginia, Regiment Type: Infantry, Regiment Number: 18th.

Marcellus W Cheatham - Private   
Wounded in the ankle at Gaines Mill. Missed action through Gettysburg. He was a timberman and, in 1874, was hit in the head and killed by a falling tree. The wound troubled him for the rest of his life and, while maybe it saved his life by keeping out of much of the action, it could have ended up killing him by causing him to be unable to get out of the way of that falling tree. Eight months after his death, his wife bore him a son that he may not even have known about.

Elam, my great grandfather, was shot in the leg during Pickett''s infamous charge at Gettyburg and the wound plagued him for 40 years. The bullet was never removed. In 1904, his leg was finally amputated and he died of the operation -- thus probably the last Confederate soldier to die of a Yankee bullet.
