John C. Tennett, CSN-- Part 2

I was able to find him listed as being an officer on the CSS Fredericksburg May 31, 1864, as First Assistant Engineer.  He is listed in the Portal to Texas History,  Register of Officers CSN, 1861-1865, but they gave only the information from the Arlington National Cemetery site.

As far as his being a chaplain as mentioned in the previous post, there is no mention of him, but there is a John C. Tennent listed in one source as being  from North Carolina and serving as Chaplain F&S in the 32nd N.C. Infantry Regiment (Lenoir Braves).  Another source lists John C. Tennent as being chaplain of the 2nd Battalion Gyrmes Brigade (probably Grimes).
