Roll of Tennessee Cavalrymen in the Natchez Expedition

Among the papers of General Coffee is a roll of the regiment of cavalry commanded by him on the expedition to Natchez. This is in the form of a record of names of men with the number of blankets, sabres and pistols furnished by each. It is probable that this is the same regiment that was afterward commanded by General Coffee in the first part of the Creek War. There are no muster rolls of the troops of the Creek War in the archives of Tennessee, but these are preserved in the War Records Office of the War Department at Washington. This roll of cavalrymen contains the names of ancestors of many Tennesseans.

It will be interesting to ascertain from what counties respectively these cavalry troops come. It is certain that troop No. 3, commanded by Capt. Baskerville, came from Sumner County. A number of the names are memorable in its annals. It will be well if anyone who reads this roll will point out the home counties of other troops. The title is as follows: "A return of Blankets, Sabres and Pistols, furnished by individuals at their own private expense, in the Regiment of Tennessee Volunteer Cavalry, commanded by Colonel John Coffee a part of the detachment under the command of Major General Andrew Jackson, in the service of the United States of America, destined for the defense of the lower country."

Some of the names are obscured by discoloration. The following is the list by companies:
