Bluford Calhoun Coleman was my great-grandfather.
He married Margaret Willard. They made their home in
Carroll County, Virginia.
Bluford, sometimes seen as Buford, enlisted in Company D, 29th Infantry Regiment Virginia on 1 June 1861 ,then was recruited
to do another round of service on 31 August 1862. He received injuries that left him unable to use his left arm. Nevertheless,
he worked as a farmer and mail carrier when he returned home.
Here are some of his military service records.
