Tilman Newton Ross - Unknown   
Tilman and his brother William T. Ross joined the 31st Infantry Regiment Volunteers on March 13, 1862. Tilman was severely wounded in the battle of Baton Rouge, LA on August 5, 1862 (camped on Comite River). It appears that he was recruited by Col. J.A. Orr and paid by Major Cargill. After he recovered (we know he lost sight in one eye) he was transferred (with William T. Ross) to D company, 8th Regiment Cavalry until the end of the war. We believe this happened towards the end of 1863. After the war he married Nancy Emiline Scott. They had 11 children and lived in Choctaw County MS along with his father, David Ross who was born in Laurens County, SC 1800. Tilman and family moved to Coe, LA. He died in 1904 and is buried at Pilgrims Rest Cemetery near Church Point, LA. He is my great grandfather.

Hobart Doane Shaw - Sergeant   
Born 16 Apr 1835 in Philadelphia, the son of Oliver Abbott Shaw and Ann Aylette Brooke Shaw. 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. By the end of the war, Shaw was a Sgt. Major. The 1860 census lists his profession as 'lawyer.' In 1880, 'clerk in store.' He was present at the unveiling of the Confederate monument in Carrollton, Miss. in 1905 with members of the 11th Miss. Infantry.

It is possible that Hobart was wounded and out of action for several months following the battle of Peachtree Creek, as I cannot find pay records for him during that time. He returned to action later that year, and pay records resumed.
