Henry C. Crews [1836-c.1874], son of Dempsey D. Crews [1806-1892], enlisted with Florida First Cavalry Volunteers on January 15, 1862, assigned to Company K. He participated in engagements at Chickamauga, Siege at Chattanooga, Atlanta, New Hope Church, Jonesboro, Franklin-Nashville Campaign, and others. He was shot in the pelvis on November 30, 1864, at Franklin, transferred to the U.S.A. Hospital No. 11, and officially taken as a prisoner several days later on December 17, 1864. Diagnosed with small pox at the hospital in February 1865, he was vaccinated and transferred several weeks later to Camp Chase at Louisville, Kentucky, on April 3, 1865. He married Susan Elizabeth Wingate following the war and had four children.
Capt. H.T. [Henry Thomas] Massengale [1835-1888] was Assistant Quarter Master posted at Knoxville at the time of this voucher. He was appointed to that position by General Anderson on July 19, 1861. He also served in this capacity in Richmond, Atlanta and Augusta. After the war, he went into the grain commission business, and later clerked for his brother-in-law who ran a line of steamers on the Tennessee River. Item #37300
