Sailors mostly from Key West who joined the
Florida Coast Guard at Tampa, Florida and mentioned in Robert Watson's
diary located in the Florida State Archives at Tallahassee, Florida
Transfers to the CSN mentioned
Information from Robert Watson's diary beginning
27 Sept. 1861.
Starting with Mulrennan's Coast Guard (aka Key West Avengers).
The common thread here is the names below are all mentioned in the diary, NOT that they always all served together.
That will take some sorting out to figure it out. Many names were spelled several different ways, adding to the confusion---differences in [brackets].
In April 1862 they were mustered into Capt.
Robert B. Smith's 7th Regt. Florida Volunteers stationed at Tampa.
They were constantly requesting permission from Secy. Mallory to join the Confederate Navy.
The ones marked (KW) were stated to be residents of Key West and in the Coast Guard in a transfer request to the CSN..
