Cass County where Kimbrough was from became Bartow County in 1861 but a lot of people still called it Cass County. Gordon County came from the top of Cass county and the bottom of Murray Counties. George was from the lower part of Gordon County which was Cass County.
His letter states that he "joned the first of the wore in '61". On his CMSR the dates say 4 Mar. 1862. This was also his birthday. But.........

Name: George E. Ballew
Side: Confederate
Regiment State/Origin: Georgia
Regiment Name: 14 Georgia Infantry
Regiment Name Expanded: 14th Regiment,
Georgia Infantry Company: K
Rank In: Private
Rank In Expanded: Private
Rank Out: Private
Rank Out Expanded: Private
Film Number: M226 roll 3

and;

Name: George E Ballew
Residence: Bartow County, Georgia
Enlistment Date: 7 Sep 1861
Rank at enlistment: Private
State Served: Georgia
Service Record: Enlisted in Company K, Georgia 14th Infantry Regiment on 09 Jul 1861.
Sources: Roster of Confederate Soldiers of Georgia 1861-1865

So I guess the 9 July date means the date of the organization of the 14th Regiment
or did he enroll that date?
Or did he enroll 7 Sept. 1861 or March 4, 1862????????
