Muster Roll and Record of Events
March 22, 1862
George Clinton Howell Jr.
Montgomery, Alabama

This is a transcription of a photocopy of documents I found in the records
 of the Alabama Department of Archives and History in Montgomery, Alabama
 in 2000.  The muster roll was in a box with other documents about this unit,
 and documents about the 4th Alabama Infantry (not the same unit).
  The other documents are two "record of events" transcribed here below after
 the muster roll.

The muster roll is handwritten on two legal-sized sheets.  The back of the
 second page has the note:
Wyatt Guards
Perry County
90 day volunteers

The front of the muster roll has two pages, with the names in two columns on
 the first page, and in one column on the second page.  It is transcribed
 here as best as possible,with all ranks and names given verbatim 
(with inconsistent punctuation), except for a few additions shown in
 parentheses ( ).  Uncertainties have a (?) which applies to the whole word.
  My gggrandfather (Private George Washington Howell) is here, next to his
 brother (James F. Howell), and with a cousin (Eugene R. Howell). 
 I hope you find someone you know.
