    • The name Charles H. Curbow comes from other researchers as being a son of Henry B. Curbow of Georgia (1770-1850). I have not established a connection - nor can I find any records on Charles outside the 1850 census and a possible Civil War record. In 1850 he is living in Houston County, Georgia which deviates in location from where most of the Henry B. Curbow family lived (north Georgia). Houston County is just slightly south of the middle of the State of Georgia. He enlisted into the Civil War in Americus, Sumpter County, Georgia, which is a little closer to where one might expect to find a Henry B. Curbow family member. According to his service papers, this Henry died of woulds during the Civil War which explains why no records can be found.

    Indexed initially as Charles W. Kirbow - later indexed as Charles H. Kerbow; member of the Georgia 10th Battalion, Georgia Infantry*; mustered up in Griffin County, Georgia on 17 Mar 1862; he was 35 and a private; Muster Roll for March-June, 1862 he was absent - sick in hospital in Macon; In Muster Rolls July 1862 through April 1864 - he was present; Muster Roll dated May/June - 1864 - "Died from wounds in Hospital - Richmond, Virginia - Chimborazo Hospital; he was admitted 26 May 1864 with abdominal wounds involving the bladder; he died 6 June 1864.
    *The 10th Battalion was organized at Griffin, Ga, March 17, 1862, of companies mainly from Macon, Worth, Sumter and Bibb Counties. There were also men from counties surrounding each of the aforementioned counties. A 5th company was formed in July '62. In 1862, the Battalion guarded prisoners held at Camp Oglethorpe in Macon from May to December. They also guarded military installations within the city of Macon. They were sent to Virginia in December 1862 and attached to G.T. Anderson's Brigade through April '63. They did not guard any prisoners other than those at Macon. They participated in the Suffolk Campaign of Apr '63 and were later unattached from any brigade and posted at Franklin, Va, for 8 months from August '63 to Apr '64. They did not serve in N. Carolina except for patrols from Franklin. In April '64, the Battalion was attached to A.R. Wright's Brigade and participated in the campaign from the Wilderness to Petersburg from May to June '64. Maj. John E. Rylander was killed at Cold Harbor. Capt. James D. Frederick of Co A, was promoted in his place. They were at Deep Bottom Aug 16, '64 and Weldon R.R. Aug 21, '64 and remained on the lines at Petersburg until the withdrawal Apr 2, '65. Maj. Frederick was wounded at Deep Bottom and the command of the Battalion eventually fell to Capt. Caleb Hill of Co A. Their last battle was at Farmville Apr 7, '65.
    Since Charles Kirbow was admitted to the hospital on 26 May 1864, it is presumed that he received his injury in the Battle of North Anna which was fought May 23-26, 1864 in central Virginia.
    He also appears on a Civil War Prisoner of War Record: C. H. Kerbow; Confederate; GA-Co. C.
