Memorial of I.A. Addison

Comrade Addison was born May 1, 1841; died November 21, 1924, at the advanced age of 83 years of age. He was born in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana; moved to Sabine Parish when six years of age, and grew to manhood. When war broke out between the states, he was among the first to volunteer. He enlisted in the Fourth La. Infantry early in 1861, and served in that Co. until 1862, when he transfeerred to the 17th Regiment, Col B, and served in that Co. until the close of the war.
Comrade Addison was in many hard fought battles; he was in the battle of Shiloh on the 6th and 7th of April, 1862, when it tried the nerves of men to stand, but Comrade Addison, like many ohters, stood in defense of what he though was right. He was also in the battle of Chickasaw Bayou, December 27 and 28, Port Gibson on May 1, 1863. He was actively engaged in the 40 days siege of Vicksburg. When the war closed, he returned to his home to begin life anew. Fellow Comrades, in viewing the past, we see that many of our Comrades have gone on, and we know that we too will soon be called to go, so let us live, that when the time comes, we will be ready.

William Walter Futch - Private   
William Walter Futch is my Great-Great-Great Grandfather. He died on April 8, 1862 in Hardin County, Tennessee, the day after the Battle of Shiloh ended. The 17th was attached to Anderson''s Brigade and saw action around the Shiloh Church and the Hornets Nest. Not sure if he died due to wounds suffered fighting or pnuemonia or measles. Both diseases were taking heavy tolls on the regiment as well as much of the army. I have not been able to track down any records of burial or cause of death as of yet.

On Roles Prisoner of War. Paroled Monroe, LA. June 9, 1865 Res. Ouachita Parish, LA. Landrum Guards (Caddo) later Co. I
Shiloh, Chickasaw Bluffs, Port Gibson, Vicksburg. Farmer from Calhoun Crossing just west of Monroe. Family tradition has it that his family could hear the cannons firing into Vicksburg from their family home during the seige. Family tradition also holds that John D. Neal, Jr., was captured at Vicksburg but his name is not on the roles at the museum there. He possibly was detached with other members of the 17th elsewhere in Louisiana. Family tradition also states that he was at the Battle of Mansfield but this is unsubstantiated by any records I have been able to find. He did have his son, John Alexander 'Dunham' Neal, name HIS son Robert Mansfield Neal with the name of the battle encorporated into the name as an indication that he participated in the battle. It was a sort of 'coded message' for Southerners who were not on the roles but did show up at the battle to fight against an invading foe despite their oath to not bear arms until exchanged. There exists no further information regarding the truth of these claims beyond an oral tradition handed down in the family and all the 'old heads' are now long gone who could verify the truth.
