George Clinton Colbaugh Via Ancestry


I am adding this for my own notes but I will do a walkthrough. We see that George Clinton Colbaugh was birn in 1851 to Henry Colbaugh and Mary McCorkle Colbaugh.


Find a Grave is not perfect but it lists

Family links:
Susan Colbaugh Rockholt (1838 – 1906)*
George Clinton Colbaugh (1851 – 1916)*
*Calculated relationship

Burial: Cotton Port Cemetery Meigs County Tennessee, USA

Charlotte’s grave was not found.


It surprising to see the progression here. Henry passed away on June 14, 1862. Oddly I (Barry Colbaugh) was born June 14, 1969 and my mother Evelyn Colbaugh passed June 14, 2007. I checked some files sent to me by Bill and Pam Hicks but this lists a Henry C Colbaugh from Carter County Tennessee. Henry was originally from Sullivan County. Henry Franklin I found was buried in Oklahoma but it is so tough to determine if the info is correct.


The names here are interesting for the children. Arthur Harless was my Grandfather. You notice he lived in Ringgold for a time and then went back to Meigs County. M dad was born In Rossville, Ga. and my Grandmother was born in Walker County, Ga. near here. John McClain was a Confederat6e Veteran who died in Catoosa County.


Notice how Samuel Colbaugh died in 1900. He is buried in Tunnel Hill


I found 2 Samuel Colbaugh’s that would make him the correct age as a veteran. My Samule Colbaugh would be 27 is he had entered the war and lived in Meigs County at the time. The other Samuel would have been 37 at the time and he lived in Piey Flatts Sullivan County Tenn.

Colbaugh -Samuel Company D 43rd Regiment Tennessee Infantry (5th EastTennesee Volunteers Gillespie Regimment Regiment mounted about December 1863 and served as mounted Infantry till paroled at Washington, Georgia in May 1865, Enlisted December 30th 1861 in Decatur, November to December 1862 Present, January to February 1862 Present, March to April 1862, present, May to June present, July to August Present, September to October Present, November to December 1862 present, January to February 1863, present, March to April 1863 present Detailed as pioneer but present on muster day, May to June 1863, July to August 1863 Absent, absent without leave, Appears on a Roll of Prisoners of War, paroled at Vicksburg, Mississippi, according to terms of capitulation entered into by the commanding Generals of the United States and Confederate Forces July 4th, 1863,Captured Vicksburg, Mississippi July 4, 1863, Vicksburg, Mississippi, July 9th A.D. 1863 to whom it may concern, know Ye That I Samuel Colbaugh a Corporal of Company D 43rd Regiment Tennessee Volunteers CSA, being a prisoner of war, in the hands of the United States forces, in virtue of the capitulation of the City of Vicksburg and its garrison Lieutenant General John C.

I will contact another friend to help me see the pattern here.. I believe my Henry has the same father which was John Kolbaugh but the family spelled it Colbaugh the original was Henry Kalbach (Colbaugh) who came over on the ship called the Forrest in 1752. I will get it nailed down somehow.
