A. C. Ardrey, my husband's great-grandfather, fought in the 21st Mississippi from the very beginning of the war (June 1861) until the end when he was captured at Sailor's Creek in April 1865 just before Appomattox. He was sent to a prison camp in Ohio and was paroled in June 1865. After a few years in Woodville MS he ended up in Dallas TX where he became a prominent citizen/businessman. Quite a remarkable story of heroism and survival.

William James Dawson - Private   
This was my Great Great Grand Uncle who was from Woodville, MS. I learned about 8 years ago the place where he died in 1862. He died in a hospital in Richmond, VA and is buried somewhere in the Richmond area. I have found no records of him in the records located at the Natl Park Service. I did find a William James Dawson in one listing but it stated that he was from Georgia. Is this is an error then that could be him.
