He does have a set of CSRs, 12 pages, however they are hard to read. I submit this summary instead.


Info from Find A Grave

Private, Company B, 3rd Florida Infantry Regiment, Confederate States Army

The following obit contributed by Find A Grave contributor Martha Reid 19 UDC:

Anthony enlisted as a Fifer in Captain John L. Phillip's Militia Company before the War Between The States. When the Company was mustered into Confederate service, Anthony apparently did not formally reenlist but stayed with the Company throughout the war. He surrendered with Company B on April 26, 1865 in North Carolina.

After the war, Anthony lived at 79 Bridge St. in St. Augustine with his wife Sedra and their children Lizzie, Frank, Sara, Annie, Necal, and Sadie. Anthony T. Welters died on January 5, 1902 at the age of 92 and is buried near family members in the San Lorenzo Cemetery, St. Augustine.
