William Femister Tucker - General   
BG William F Tucker CSA who is a decendent of Thomas L Tucker.Tucker, William Feimster, 1827-1881.Biographical summary and historical and eulogistic sketches of William Feimster Tucker, native of Iredell County, N.C.; graduate of Emory and Henry College, 1848; school teacher, judge, and lawyer of Okolona, Chickasaw County, Miss. Tucker was married to Martha Josephine Shackelford in 1851; rose to the rank of brigadier-general in the Confederate army; and served in the Mississippi state legislature, 1876-1878. Tucker was born 9 May 1827 in Iredell county, North Carolina. He graduated from Virginia's Emory and Henry College in 1848 then moved to Houston, Mississippi. He taught school in Chicksaw county, Mississippi then in 1852 founded the Okolona Male Academy. In 1855 Tucker, although he had no legal training, was elected a county probate judge. Once a judge he studied the law and established a law practice. He was a practicing attorney in Okolona, Mississippi when the war began.

Tucker entered the Confederate service as a captain in the Chicksaw Guards which was mustered into service on 9 March 1861 as Company K, some sources say H, in the11th Mississippi infantry. The 11th became part of the 3rd brigade in Joseph E. Johnston's Army of the Shenandoah. Tucker and the 11trh fought at First Manassas then was sent back to Mississippi where the 11th was combined with other units and became the 41st Mississippi. Tucker was commissioned the 41st's colonel on 8 May 1862. He commanded the 41st, attached to the 2nd brigade/ 2nd division of Leonidas Polk's corps, during the fall 1862 Kentucky campaign and at Murfreesboro. Tucker commanded the 41st, then became part of the 1st brigade of Thomas Hindman's division, at Chickamauga and Chattanooga. Tucker was promoted to brigadier general on 11 May 1864, to date from 1 March, and was given command of a brigade which included his 41st and the 7th, 9th, 10th, and 44th Mississippi regiments. He was wounded at Resaca, Georgia three days after his commission as a brigadier was confirmed. Although never able to return to combat duty Tucker assumed command of the District of Southern Mississippi and East Louisiana in 1865. He negotiated the end of hostilities with Union Major General Napoleon Dana in April and May 1865.

Following the war Tucker returned to Okolona and his law practice. He served in the Mississippi state legislature from 1876 until 1878. His most significant contribution in the legislature was on the committee that recalled the hated Reconstruction governor, Adelbert Ames. Tucker again returned to the practice of law. To end his prosecution in a trust-fund theft case, hired gunmen shot and killed Tucker on 14 September 1881 in Okolona.

Hobart Doane Shaw - Private   
Born 16 Apr 1835 in Philadelphia, died May 1909 in Carrollton, Miss.
Enlisted 11th Regiment, Co. K, Carroll County, Miss.
Transfered to 31st Miss Inf, Co. I, Carroll County, Miss as a Sgt. in 1862 where his brother in law, Capt. James Drane served.
1860 census lists his profession as 'lawyer.' In 1880, 'clerk in store.'

The following is an extract from the 'Confederate Veteran,' official organ of the United Confederate Veterans and published at Nashville, Tenn. The issue from which this extract was copied was dated December 1910.


H. D. Shaw, whose death occurred at his home, in Carrollton, Miss., in May 1909, was born in Philadelphia, Pa.,
seventy-five years ago, his father being from Massachusetts and his mother a Virginian. He came South when a mere boy.

Thoroughly imbued with the principles of pure patriotism and wedded to the State of his adoption, he enlisted as a private in one of the first regiments to be mustered in from Mississippi. As a non-commissioned officer he was in active service in different branches of the Army, both in Virginia and the Western Army, to the close and to the end of his life remained true to the principles for which he had suffered. The last work of his active life, at the age of seventy, was to devote his entire time to the raising of the fund with which to erect a monument to the twenty-seven hundred Confederate soldiers who enlisted from Carroll County, Miss. This he accomplished, and had the satisfaction of taking part in the unveiling of that monument now standing in Court Square, and one of the handsomest of its kind in the State.'

In the photograph of the event, he appears to be the individual sitting in the second row, left side, directly behind the front row lady in a large white hat. He is sitting with his 11th Mississippi, Co. K regiment, which was known as the Carroll County Rifles.
