Matthew John McDonald - Private   
My great-great grandfather M. J. McDonald joined from Grenada, Miss., November 1861 though in the 1907 and 1911 enumerations of Confederate veterans living in Carroll County, Miss., he gave 1862 as entry year into Stanford's Battery. It's my gleaning that SB didn't actually see fighting until 1862. Matthew John was born Nov. 1, 1824 in South Carolina, and he came with other family members to the Carroll-Yalobusha (Miss.)area in early to mid-1830s. He's buried in Friendship Primitive Baptist Cemetery in Carroll County's 'Little Texas' area on land he once owned.
