I just added in my own transcription of the Muster Roll, which I left out of the original post by mistake. It follows the image of the deed book page and precedes the Muster Roll with fates of the soldiers created by dbrannen.

Jack Rigdon. I would like to talk to you. Daniel and William Rigdon are also my great uncles. Wyly was their cousin IIRC. Daniel and William's brother Thomas was my GG grandfather. Thomas joined Co E (col Symons?), 6 Regiment Ga Reserves and survived the war but as a POW. Contact me at zrrrrz6789@gzmail.com. Take out all of the Zs (anti-SPAM measure).
