Dempsey John Corbitt, Company A, 55th Tennessee Infantry

My ancestor was Dempsey John Corbitt ( Corbett ).  He is buried in the McGavock Cemetery at Carnton Plantation in the Tennessee section.   He was in Brown’s 55th Tn Inf.  I have his service records and the genealogy written down.

      My GGgrandfather’s name was Samuel Berry and he was from Big Sandy, Tn. Sorry, I forgot to mention his name. I also corrected my e-mail address.
