John H. Blackmon - Private   
My great grandfather, John H. Blackmon (Blackman), son of Henry J Blackmon (1814-1876 ?) and Winniford Ann Hedgepeth, was born in 1841 in Marion county, Mississippi- however, by 1860, he and his family had removed to Lawrence county. On 5 April 1861, he enrolled as a private in Capt Prestige's Company Mississippi Volunteers at Monticello, Lawrence county, Mississippi. This unit later became Company A 22nd Mississippi Infantry Regiment (also known as Bonham's Regiment Mississippi Volunteers for a short time). He was mustered in on 27 July 1861 at Iuka, Mississippi, and remained with this same Regiment for the duration of the war- fighting at Shiloh, Corinth, Baton Rouge, Coffeeville, Vicksburg, Champion Hill, Resaca, Kenesaw Mountain, Peachtree Creek, Franklin, Kinston- and all of the other battles involving the 22nd Mississippi. Near War's end, about 9 April 1865, this Regiment was combined with the 1st Regiment, 33rd Regiment and 1st Battalion Mississippi Infanry- to form a new Regiment, which was then designated as the Combined 22nd Regiment Mississippi Infantry. Other engagements included Bentonville and the final surrender in North Carolina on 26 April 1865. He was wounded on several occasions- with serious wounds taken near Peachtree Creek. At war's end, he was paroled from Company H Combined 22nd Mississippi Infantry Regiment 28 April 1865 at Greensboro, North Carolina. He married Louisa King (nee Thornhill)(1842-1904), and they had 7 children together. I am descended through their son, Thomas Marion Blackmon (1875-1943). John H Blackmon's date of death is unknown, but thought to be 1896-- his grave site also remains unknown.

Dewitt Clinton Bonham - Colonel   
D. W. C. Bonham was born in Pennsylvania about 1818, and married Mary F. Gwin, May 15, 1845 in Vicksburg, Warren County, Mississippi. He owned a large plantation in Issaquena County, Mississippi. He and Company G were at Camp Beauregard Kentucky in the fall of 1861 were he died of pneumonia between November 1861 and January 1862. Maybe...
This regiment was formed at Iuka in the summer of 1861 of companes that were early organized but had not been able to get into regiments for active service. .... Company G, after its organization, waiting vainly for orders, lost many members who joined other commands in the field; after the battle of manassas reorganized and enlisted for the war, arrived at Iuka July 30, expecting to join the Twentieth Regiment. It being full, Captain Reid and Captain Nix went to Richmond and secured the enrollment of their commands as independent companies. September 10 they were ordered to Memphis, Tenn., where Colonel Bonham had gone with his incomplete regiment, the Twenty-Second. These reminiscenses illustrate the formation of the regiment.
Bonham's Regiment was completed at Memphis, and on September 23{1861} reported to General Polk at Columbus, Ky., where they remained until after the battle of Belmont, Novermber 7, of which they were spectators, without being called into action. After this they were ordered back to Union City, Tenn., and thence marched to Fulton, Ky., the night of October 1. October 6 they went into winter quarters at Camp Beauregard, in Graves County, Ky., and remained there until Christmas, making several expeditions meanwhile to Mayfield and Columbus, and once marching in the night to within six or eight miles of Paducah. There were many sick and a considerable number died, among them Colonel Bonham, of pneumonia, in November. The regiment was reported November 30, 795 present, and a part of the brigade of Gen. John S. Bowen at Camp Beauregard. After Christmas they were moved to Clarksville, and thence to Bowling Green, December 29, where they were in winter quarters until February 12, when, on account of Grant's advance to Fort Donelson, General Johnston was compelled to retire to Murfreesboro, Tenn. They were at Nashville the day of battle at Fort Donelson and could hear the artillery. The regiment was about 580 strong in January and was brigaded with the Twenty-fifth Mississippi under Bowen. (Written by Dunbar Rowland)

D. W. C. Bonham may have been alive well into 1863 according to family letters. His obituary has not been found by many family researchers and his last resting place has not been found either. Although it is stated to be in Vicksburg, Mississippi.

In 1892, in Chicago, listed on the Voter Registration Rolls is D. W. C. Bonham born in Pennsylvania, a 20 year resident of that state and 6 year resident of Chicago. Not proof positive he was still living, but he did have a very singular name.

DeWitt Clinton Bonham - Colonel   
DeWitt Clinton Bonham I, bn. 1819, had a brother, Jacob Dritt Bonham. Jacob married Matilda Zook in PA, and they had a son named DeWitt Clinton Bonham II in 1846 in PA. DWC Bonham II was listed in several Chicago lists...voter's list and Blue Book social list with his wife known as 'Mrs. Bonham'. De Witt Clinton Bonham I, died at Camp Beauregard, KY of disease in Dec. 1861. His burial place is not known, and I have researched it extensively. He is listed in Fisher Funeral Home records in Vicksburg as having died, but is listed as being buried in LA. He is not found in any Vicksburg, MS Cemetery. I've been there and read all the cemetery lists as well as toured the cemeteries.
