Private John P. Haws -- listed as having been captured at Corinth 11/6/63 (not at Battle of Corinth more than a year earlier); probably simply went to Corinth to desert, as this despicable traitor enlisted in U.S. Army 11/16/63

Private Thomas L.

Private William J. Morris -- died 9/12/62 (place and cause not stated)

Private Robert F. Read -- died 6/29/62 (place and cause not stated)

Private L.B. Sealy -- known only from widow's pension applications; she claims he served for six months beginning 3 or 4/62 and says he was discharged at ?Iuca? [Iuka, MS]; she claims he later joined Capt. Bookter's Company; she also correctly names five company and regimental officers; while all this militates for Sealy having been a member of the regiment, he surely would have appeared on official, early regimental documents had he actually served in the 43rd; he never served with the 43rd

Private Albert A. Spencer -- discharged 7/25/62 (chronic hepatitis & ?badly joined clavicle which prevents him carring [sic] a gun?)  (occupation:  farmer) (aged 22 years) [Note:  This noble soldier did not let his affliction keep him from service.  Unfit for infantry, he re-enlisted into the 5th MS Cavalry, serving until eventually wounded at Spring Hill, TN, 11/29/64 on the eve of Franklin!]

Private Francis M. Swindle -- captured Vicksburg; present at last official muster 8/64; further service unclear

Tenhet -- rejected for service by inspecting surgeon (after just six weeks service, according to his 1910 pension application); according to same pension application, he re-enlisted in Ames Battalion just five days after his discharge from the 43rd, but was also rejected for service in that unit due to an unspecified ?physical disability?  (aged 32 at enlistment)

Private Charles T. Tenhet -- discharged 8/17/62 Gainesville, AL, on surgeon's certificate of disability (chronic hepatitis & injured left leg)  (occupation: farmer)  (aged 29 years)

Private Lewis Thompson -- missing after Corinth, MS; killed 11/30/64 Franklin, TN

Private Barnabas 'Barnie' H. Vance -- died 9/19/62 (place and cause not stated in compiled service record, but widow's 1900 pension application says he died 9/19/62 at Iuka, same date as battle there; the 43rd was not directly engaged in the battle, but came up in a supporting role just as darkness was falling; Vance might have been killed by a stray bullet, as we know that stray bullets were flying over the heads of the regiment; of course, he might simply have died in hospital of disease)

Private James A. Vance -- enlisted 10/8/63 at Greensboro, MS; mortally wounded 11/30/64 Franklin, TN; died shortly thereafter

Private William R. Wilson -- discharged 7/29/62 on surgeon's certificate of disability (chronic rheumatism) (occupation: mechanic)  (aged 29 years) [Note:  This brave soldier's 1905 pension application reaffirms preceding data.  However, Wilson did not let rheumatism keep him from re-enlisting into W.L. Duff's Battalion of Cavalry and continuing to resist the invading Northerners.]

Private W.W. Wooten -- ?mustered into Confederate Service by Capt. Ford in Choctaw Co. [MS] but refused to come; must be considered a deserter
