I tried to post my roster but it contains links and references where I got some of my info. Some of there are URL's and I think I am only limited to 3 Urls per post. I understand its a spam feature. Would you like me to repost.

Please do.
Yes it is an anti spammer feature. I'm still learning the software and trying to balance security with ease of posting.

I would like to know what you have.
I've seen rosters but do you have more detailed information? I'm looking for a unit timeline. I have some information but not much on where the unit was and when. Do you also have something like the Infantry Roster that was published? I have found very little on the artillery and militia units of Gwinnett.

Yes I have been collecting the entire 9th Battalion which consists of 5 companies. Company A was Leydens Artillery named for its commander William Austin Leyden. Company B was the Fulton Artillery mustered out of Oak Grove Sandy Springs area. Company C was the Columbus Rebels, Company D Gwinnett Artillery and Company E Everetts battery Atlanta all mustered around April 1862

When you say unit time lines are you talking about battles or their travels from Georgia to the battlefield, etc.etc.

Exactly. Ideally, I would like to know week by week where they were. Right now I know - off the top of my head - that they were around Abingdon, VA from Summer 1862 to some time in 1863 with general Marshall. But I don't know anything else other than they defended the salt works there in December. Who else was there? What else were they doing? When did they move? Did anyone write home? So far I've found a lot of material for the infantry units and a fairly detailed timeline for the 12th Lt Arty but cav info is scarce and anything more for the 9th also.

June 20, 1863 Knoxville
Aug 23, 1863 Started on the march from Knoxville, TN. Marched to LaFayette, Ga. Left there on the 17th of Sept. 1863
Sep 19-20, 1863 Chickamauga
Nov 1 1863 near Chattanooga
January-March 1864 With detachement of Army of Northern Virginia in Tennessee.
October 1864 Ordered to Richmond for heavy duty.
Nov 1864 - Mar 1865 Petersburg
April 9, 1865 Appomattox

Barry,
I saw your post on Genforum about Noah Richard Brogdon. Yes, there appear to be two Noah Brogdons. The one in the 42nd seems to be pretty well identified as to parents (George and Sarah), wife (Harriett Strickland), and death (25 June 1862) of Mumps in Tennessee. I just ran across this while working on the Gwinnett soldiers and haven't investigated further as to the ID of 9th GA Noah. Let me know if you find out more.
