Fold3.com is providing free access to their Confederate records this month. My confederate ancestry is verrrry limited, but I thought I’d check it out. I found the enlistment papers for my 3x great grandfather James Benjamin Houdeshell.
On 13 Mar 1842, my 3x great grandfather James Benjamin Houdeshell was born in Hardy County, Virginia (now West Virginia) to Adam and Mary (Sine) Houdeshell. ∞
