JAMES W. JONES

James W. Jones, president of the Farmers' Alliance of Natchitoches Parish, was born in Georgia, December 18, 1838, and passed his boyhood and youth under the parental roof. In 1859 he came to Louisiana, and settled in what is now Grant Parish, where he made his home until 1887, when he moved to his present place of residence in Natchitoches Parish, one and a half miles from the city.
In 1861 he joined Company C, or what was known at the Winn Rifles, rose to the position of second lieutenant, and was a brave and efficient officer, serving until the close of the war. He was wounded at the battle of Vicksburg. Since the war he has been engaged in farming and has made a success of this occupation, as a glance over his well kept place will clearly indicate to the beholder.
He took a leading part in the Grange movement, and has always taken the same kind of interest in the Farmers' Alliance movement. In July, 1890 he was elected president of the last named organization of this parish, and is eminently fitted for that position.

He was married in the year 1863, to Miss Annie M. Dobbs, who was born in Marietta, Ga., in 1842. They have five children who are named as follows: Rowena, Lillie, James R., Hattie and Ernest W.
Mr. Jones is a close adherent to Democratic principles, and socially is a
member of the Masonic fraternity, Phoenix Lodge No. 38 of this city. He
joined this society in Montgomery, La, and for about four years was master of Lodge No. 168 of that place.
He and Mrs. Jones are members of the Baptist Church. Mr. Jones was the eldest of four children, three now living, born to James and Harriet (Cooper) Jones, natives of Georgia and Virginia, respectively. The father died in his native State, in 1839, when about thirty years of age, and the mother also died in that State, in 1847, when about twenty eight or thirty years of age. The maternal grandfather of our subject, Rev. John W. Cooper, was a minister in the Baptist church for about thirty five or forty years. He died in Georgia, in 1849, at the age of seventy years.

Natchitoches Times
J.W. Jones
Jas. W. Jones, Friday March 1,
1918 at 2:00 A.M., Aged 79
years.
Mr. Jones, who was a native of
Georgia, was born in 1839 and in
1861 joined Co. C. of that state and
served all during the Civil War with
honor, rising to the rank of Second
Lieutenant.
After the war he married Miss
Anna Dobbs and to this union six
children were born, three of whom
survive. They are Mrs. Albert Bri-
lari of Little Rock, E.W. Jones of
Shreveport, and Jas. R. Jones of
Oakdale.
The deceased settled in Grant
Parish after the War, moving to Nat-
chitoches in 1877, where he since
resided.
His funeral was held on Friday af-
ternoon with internment in Ameri-
can Cemetery. The religious cere-
mony was held at the First Baptist
Church of which he has always been
a consistant member. Phoenix
Lodge , No. 38, F. & A.M. conduc-
ted the Masonic ceremony at the
grave.
The deceased was a kind and de-
voted husband and father, a true
friend of the sick and needy and af-
ter a long, honorable and useful life
has gone to claim his reward, hearing
those consoling words, 'Well done,
thou good and faithful servant'.
To his bereaved wife, who was
ever his devoted helpmeet, and child-
ren, the 'Times' extends great sym-
pathy.

E. (Manuel) Cordaway - Private   
CORDAWAY, MANUEL (1834 ~ 1910). Manuel Cordaway, Confederate veteran, was born in Louisiana in 1834. Not much is known about Cordaway's life before the Civil War, although Confederate Home Roster records indicate he made his living as a farmer.

.


On March 20, 1862, Cordaway enlisted in the Confederate States Army in New Orleans and was mustered into the 27th Louisiana Infantry. The 27th Louisiana Infantry served at the Battle of Vicksburg, but took heavy losses and was later consolidated into other Louisiana Infantry regiments. Cordaway was taken by United States Army forces and was made to sign a declaration that he would never take up arms against the United States again. According to Compiled Military Service Records, Cordaway continued to serve in the Confederate Army, as his name is present on a prisoner of war list from New Orleans. Cordaway was present when a group of Confederate soldiers surrendered to Union forces in New Orleans at the end of the war in May of 1865. He was released in June of the same year..


Cordaway moved to Texas in 1895 and took up residence in Riviera, Nueces County, Texas. Cordaway was admitted to the Confederate Veterans Home on July 12, 1910. He died 15 days later and was buried in the Texas State Cemetery.

Young William Rogers - Private   
Private Young William Rogers was my great-great grandfather. He was the last surviving member of Co G of the 27th La Infantry (see newspaper article from The Champion, newspaper from my hometown of Center, Texas dated February 12, 1930). He and a brother, Private James Wooten Rogers, and a cousin, Lt. Giles N. Graves all were sworn in the service at Metairie Race Track on March 20, 1862 by Lt. D.H. Todd, half-brother of Mary Todd Lincoln. Perhaps latter privates Peyton Graves Rogers and Y.W. (Billy) Graves were recruited and joined the unit. Young William Rogers fought at the Battle of Vicksburg receiving a wound to the thigh. I have extensive research and documentation regarding this unit.
