Please be advised that the records of the National Archives may be in error regarding the disposition of this soldier.

Robert E. Monzingo, assigned to Company L of the 12th Louisiana Infantry likely born in South Carolina about 1841.

The following information on this individual has been submitted by a researcher.

  • From the Military Records of Louisiana Confederate Soldiers and Louisiana Confederate Commands, compiled by Andrew B. Booth, Commissioner Louisiana Military Records, 1920, Vol. p. 1023.  The following information is provided:

    • Monzingo, Robert E., Pvt. Co. L, 12th Louisiana Infantry enlisted on August 13, 1861, at Camp Moore, Louisiana and was present on all rolls through June, 1863. On the roll July and August 1863, he was reported absent, having been sent to the hospital.  He was picked up on the roll at Lauderdale Confederate Hospital on July 10, 1863. On the rolls of September and October, 1863,  he was again reported absent, having been sent to the hospital (as noted) and, on release, furloughed to Alabama on September 1, for 30 days. On the November and December rolls for 1863, he was reported present.  He was on the hospital register, the following year, having been admitted to the 1st Mississippi C. S. A. hospital., Jackson, Mississippi on Feb. 13, 1864.   He was returned. to duty, March 7, 1864 and is again on the roll during May and June, 1864.  Monzingo was discharged May 16. 1864, because of chronic diarrhea, by an examining board.

  • From the index of the Claiborne Parish, Louisiana Marriage Records 1849 - 1910, by Willie Huffman Farley, J & W Enterprises, Shreveport, LA, 1984, p. 107:

    • Groom: Rob E. Monzingo; Bride: Jinnie C. Monzingo; Marriage Date: 22 Nov 1866; Book: 01; Folio 421.

  • From the Webster Parish, LA Property Records, 1873, Book 1, Folio 506:

    • Kinchen and Mary Ann Monzingo [his parents] to Robert E. Monzingo Deed.

  • From the  Webster Parish, LA Property Records, 1873, Book 1, Folio 507:

    • Robert E. Monzingo to John C Loye & Co Deed.

  • From the following source --Year: 1880; Census Place: Point Remove, Conway, Arkansas; Roll: T9_41; Family History Film: 1254041; Page: 318.4000; Enumeration District: 39; Image: 0381, Lines 8 & 9.

    •  Monzingo and family were residents of this locality (Conway County, Arkansas) in 1880.

From the research submitted by this researcher, we can determine that Robert E. Monzingo was born about 1841 in Stokes Bridge, Darlington, South Carolina.  On 22 November 1866 he married Jenny C. (maiden name unknown) in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana.  He died at the age of 71 (1912) in Conway, Faulkner, Arkansas.

Further, based on the information now available, it appears that while Robert e. Monzingo, Company L, 12th Louisiana Infantry, was in fact a patient at the Lauderdale Springs Hospital in September of 1963, the inclusion of his name on the deceased list by the Confederate hospital logs of the National Archives, is clearly in error.

Researchers accessing this information should consider the inclusion of the adjunct information provided here in your continuing research.
