Thanks for the info on the Panola - Penola Guards and the Pike's Greys, now I have another question for you.

I found something today that I knew a little about, but don't really know much about it. In the Early History of Covington Co, Al 1821 - 1871 by Wyley Donald Ward, I found the Muster Roll for Company C, Covington County Reserves organized from Beat Nos. 4, 5, and 11, Aug. 27, 1864. In it is listed C. Floyd age 52, Pvt. and under remarks is G.

This C. Floyd is Charles Floyd found in the 1850 Pike Co, Al census, brother of my Theophilus Floyd, he is in the 1860 Covington Co, Al census & 1870 Crenshaw Co, Al census. I do not know where he died at.

Now the question, as Home guards, I assume they did not go into battle, can you tell me what their duties would have been and would there be records for them in the archives? Would they are their spouses have been eligible for a pension?

Thank you for any information you can give me.
