Samuel H. Brister - Private   
Samuel served first in the third Miss. Infantry assigned to Vicksburg. He served through the Vicksburg campaign and siege. He joined Lomax's Company. Miss light Artillery after his Vicksburg parole. The company was stationed at Meridian and was sent to Mobile when an attack from Baton Rouge was anticipated by Confederate Authorities.

The company was found to be insufficient for infantry duty owing to the fact that a large majority of the men were old
and infirm. The company was organized as an artillery unit, but was never equipped as such. The company was disbanded on 31 October 1864.



Mary Nolen Brister filed for a Confederate Veteran Widow pension and stated that Samuel had served in the 18th
Mississippi Inf until the end of the war. He was paroled at Appomatox, Va.

Erastus H Laird - Private   
Erastus Laird----born 1837, died 1924, Florence , MS, Rankin County. My grandfather, Ira Stuckey ( 1907-1994) told me he remembered hearing his maternal grandfather talk about the Civil War when he was a child-- while he was ' slipping around under the porch'. Erastus would have been 70 when my grandfather Ira Stuckey was born in 1907 to his daughter Florence Laird Stuckey.
The Laird- Dear- Stuckey homestead from around 1850 is still standing in Rankin County, MS-- indeed it is perfectly preserved .
There is a family picture made around 1912 with Erastus Laird looking in fine shape indeed at 75, with his daughter Florence Laird, her husband Carl Stuckey, and their children.
