Col. John Weir, a son of Thomas and Isabella [née McKee] Weir, was born on April 7th 1833 in Wilcox County, Alabama. His parents were originally from Fairfield County, South Carolina. When John was about 7, his family moved to Choctaw County (later Winston), Mississippi. Here John was educated and raised. In 1861, a volunteer army was organized at New Prospect, Mississippi. This company became Company D, known as The New Prospect Greys; in which John enlisted as a Captain. Company D and the other companies formed the Fifth Regiment, Fourth Brigade, of Mississippi Volunteers, known as the Army of Mississippi; which formally organized with the election of field officers on September 5th 1861, at Enterprise. After the battle of Shiloh, Capt. Weir (in which he was wounded) was promoted for his gallantry to the office of Major over two Senior Captains, and at the reorganization of the regiment he was elected Colonel. Besides the innumerable skirmish and picket fights, Col. Weir's Command was in 18 general battles.

After the war, John Weir returned home and married Miss Emily Anna Miller with whom he had six known children. Col. John Weir departed this life on June 9th 1900 at the age of 67 years.

James Hutchinson - Private   
James Hutchinson, Jr. joined the Confederate Army and served in Company D, 5th Mississippi Infantry along with his brother, John Hutchinson. Both were taken prisoner during the war. James enlisted as a private in Company D, 5th Mississippi Infantry (New Prospect Grays), on 1 September 1963, two years after it was organized. At the time his wife was pregnant, and he requested that if the child were a boy, it would be named after him. Born January 3, 1864, a girl, James Anna Hutchinson, joined the family. The New Prospect Grays took part in 18 general battles with half of their men being killed or wounded during the war. Because of this, it was later consolidated with other battalions. Among the battles in which this unit fought were Shiloh, Kennesaw, Peachtree Creek, Fort Donelson, Franklin, Chickamauga, Murfreesboro, Corinth, Missionary RIdge, and Tanner's Ferry. Although it does not show in his military records, it is interpreted that James was captured at Blakely, Alabama, in April of 1865. This is based on family tradition together with prison records of a James Hutchinson appearing under Regiment 35. This was part of the campaign for Mobile, one of the best fortified cities in the south. Three thousand four hundred and twenty-three prisoners were taken at Blakely and removed under Negro guards to Ship Island, Mississippi. While there, they received cruel treatment. These prisoners were paroled at Vicksburg, and according to family tradition, James walked home from there. As he approached the house, he hollered 'Hoop Pee!!!'. His wife recognized his voice, and all the family ran out to greet him. As he was covered with lice, he did not allow them to touch him until he had washed completely in hot water.
