Dabney was my great-great-grandfather. He was a member of Hughes' Battalion, the 4th Mississippi Cavalry. Dabney served a very short time in the war. He enlisted June 7, 1862 and died Nov 7, 1862 in East Feliciana, Louisiana, of unknown cause. His Civil War records describe him as 32 years old, 6 feet tall, fair complexion, blue eyes, dark hair, and occupation as farmer. Dabney's widow, Matilda Ashley Terry, died just six months after him. They left six orphaned children ages 1 through ten.

Nimrod Smith - Private   
I have a headstone application that says that Peter was a member of this unit. I have also obtained service records, but I'm not sure if this is the right man because, according to a list of headstone registrations, there is another man of the same name in the same unit, but he's from Simpson County. So the service records may be his instead.

I also have headstone and pension applications which state that Peter was in the 3rd MS infantry. According to information on both headstone applications, they both must be referring to him. However, the only service records I could obtain for the 3rd was for an 'N.J. Smith' who died in a hospital on July 24, 1864, in Macon of wounds sustained July 20th during the Battle of Peachtree Creek, so this is not my relative since he survived the war. I've seen the muster rolls for this unit, and there is nobody else listed that could be him.

Nimrod 'Peter' Smith, Sr. is buried in Steep Hollow cemetery, located in Pearl River County, Mississippi. His headstone just says 'Confederate States Army'. No specific unit is listed.

James Hodge (JIM) Yawn - Private   
James Hodge (Jim) Yawn, one of five of my GG Grandfathers who served, was born in Henry Co Ala 12MAR1836 and appears on the Covington Co census of 1850. He enlisted 19JAN1862 in Pass Christian, Miss. He married Sarah Elizabeth Lee (1844-1931) in 1860. His first son, born in 1862, was named James Terrell Yawn after Capt Vernon Terrell, so I assume he served in the Terrell's Dragoons detatchment. Archive cards indicate Co A,B & Stockdale's Btn. He is on Forrest's 2nd Division Cavalry list of wounded JULY1864, Harrisburg. He named another son Thomas Stockdale Yawn after the Lt Col, 4 MISS CAV. He is listed on the Co B final roster in 1865.In 1870, he appears on the Rapides Parish census and was a major participate in the Colfax battle/massacre of 1873 (Grant Parish). He died of unknown causes 15DEC1883 in Rapides Parish and is burried in the Venus-Cherina Cemetery, Ball, Louisiana. He has a Confederate veteran tombstone which reads: JAMES H. YAWN,CO B, 4 MISS CAV, C S A. He enlisted in the Cavalry with his younger brother, Pvt Cornelius Jorden Yawn, who was later transferred to Co B 46 MISS INF then discharged by the brigade surgeon at Camp Pleasant 11OCT1862. They were the sons of Willis Jackson Yawn and Louisa Odom of South Carolina, great grandsons of Major Archibald Odom, NC Militia, and GG Grandsons of Pvt. Henry Bramlett Virginia Militia, American Revolution.
