Rollins, Calvin

Ca. 1840 - April 12, 1864

Calvin Rollins was born around 1840. Military records do not record his birthplace. He was described as having a black complexion, black eyes, and black hair. Following the Fort Pillow Massacre on April 12, 1864, military officials recorded his status as "missing after battle," but upon his widow's application for pension in the immediate postwar years, it was determined that he was killed during the fight that day.
