"... The board examined 1st Lt Joseph B Fannin Co K 37th Ala Vols and report him deficient in tactics with a fair knowledge of the duties of company officers and regulations of good habits and capacity for command has sufficient ability and will by application make a good officer. Passes. ..."
Fannin was paid $90 on 13 Nov 1862 at Columbus MS for his services as Lieutenant for 1 Aug-31 Aug 1862; Resigned his commission on 25 Nov 1862, effective 31 Dec 1862 citing: "Bad health/Chronic bronchitis," the accompanying medical examination attached to his resignation was performed by A.J. Manning, an Assistant Surgeon then assigned to the 37th Alabama, stating that Fannin was:
"... incapable of performing his duties as Lieutenant because of chronic bronchitis ... in his case he is predisposed to phthisis pulmonalis [tuberculosis]. He has suffered repeated attacks of pulmonary hemorrage [coughing up blood]. ..."
Fannin signed various clothing vouchers in 1864; According to descendant John F. Fannin: "... He [Joseph B. Fannin] was a surgeon, having attended the Medical School at Charleston. He was 35 when mustered in and left a wife, Mary Murphree Fannin and one son, Richard Fannin (then 10) at Troy, AL. He developed bronchitis in the winter and was released to go home at the end of 1862. He lived out his life in Troy. He died of pneumonia after having traveled by horseback in the frozen winter to see an ill patient in the mid-eighteen seventies. He is buried in the Murphree family cemetery in Troy..." Despite this information, there is no clear evidence to support the claim that Dr. Fannin served the regiment in a medical capacity.

Presumably the "Lt Fanning" mentioned as having "died; don’t know where" in 1902 letter of A.J. Bryan (Co K); According to Civil War physician authority, Dr. Terry Hambrecht, J.B. Fannin of Troy, Ala., was a student at the Medical College of the State of South Carolina [now the Medical University of South Carolina], from 1853 to 1854, but did not receive an M.D. degree. His preceptor before attending medical school was Dr. S. B. McKenzie of Montgomery, AL.; In 1858, Dr. Joseph B. Fannin served as a member of the Pike County, Ala., Medical Board; Learn about those who dedicated themselves to care for the sick and wounded throughout the war at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.
