46th Mississippi Infantry      
Company Unknown
James Kimball - Private   
My ex wife's ancestor, We believe was James Kimball, served in the 46th. He was surrendered at Vicksburg, paroled, and supposedly returned in the fall that year for the unit. After the war, a neighbor that fought with him said he was killed at Chattanooga, but the 46th didn't get back to the Army until Chattanooga had fallen. Does anyone have any thougths what might have happened?

Isaac Whatley - Private   
Isaac enlisted in Oct. 1861 with three of his brothers at Waynesboro, Wayne Co., MS

Isaac's second wife applied for a Confederate pension after his death in the late 19th century in Texas. Evidently, he didn't talk enough about the war that she actually knew for which regiment, or even state, he had fought because she listed it as the 12th Alabama Cavalry. Even though the pension papers say they couldn't find his name listed in that regiment, because another veteran had vouched for him, she got the pension. He never fought for the 12th Alabama Cavalry, but served in the 46th Mississippi Infantry until the end of the war. He is mentioned several times, and cited for exceptional bravery, in various records and memoirs of other members of the 46th.

Winston Morris - Private   
Winston was stationed at Vicksburg during the summer of '62 with his company and the remainder of the 6th Battalion when he got sick. He is one of my 3rd-great grandfathers and an uncle to my 2nd-great grandfather, John Guslin Pace, who was also in this company. He had one other nephew, William M. Pace, who was in this company as well.

Morris family knowledge recounts that Winston was sent home from Vicksburg sometime after he got sick in the hopes that he might better recuperate in familiar surroundings. He rode the train as far as Summit, Pike County, MS. However, home was still another 60-odd miles away for Winston lived in what was then known as the Morris community of Marion County, MS, 7-miles northeast of Columbia, MS.

Seeing Winston's weakened physical condition, an old man who lived in Summit placed Winston on a horse and walked the horse, with Winston riding, all the way to Winston's house. Once he arrived, Winston is said to have kissed his wife and each of the children. He lingered for several days. But he finally died on 23 August 1862 from typhoid fever, according to his military death certificate.

Winston's oldest child and my 2nd-great grandfather, 12-year old Nathan Morris, and a family slave went to Columbia in an ox-drawn wagon to buy the lumber with which to build the casket and a new suit of clothes in which to bury his dad. The slave drove the wagon with the lumber in it on the return trip home while Nathan walked before the wagon carrying his dad's burial clothes. This was said to be Nathan's expression to honor his dad's memory.

John Guslin Pace - Private   
John was my paternal 2nd-great grandfather. He was actually only a member of company B (Covington Rebels) when it was part of the 6th Battalion Mississippi Infantry because he was listed as AWOL by Dec 1862. The 46th, with 8 companies of the 6th Battalion as its nucleus plus 2 additional companies, was not officially formed until Dec 1862.

The only thread of family lore regarding John during the war was that he had shot a turkey and had brought it home. He was relaxing while the wife prepared it for dinner, when suddenly they heard the 'Butternut Cavalry' coming down the lane toward their house. He quickly sprang to his feet, grabbed his hat and rifle, and sprinted out the back door of the house and into the woods. This story, in my mind, confirms his wartime record of being AWOL (in this case, more correctly a deserter).

He had several family members serving in company B with him.

William M. Pace - Private   
William is a brother to my 2nd-great grandfather, John Guslin Pace, who served in this company with him. Shortly after the 6th Battalion (the core of the future 46th Regiment Mississippi Infantry) arrived to man the defenses along the Mississippi River around Vicksburg, MS in May 1862, William is listed a being sent to a hospital at Mississippi Springs, MS (near Raymond, MS in Hinds County)on 10 June 1862. He is then listed as having died of erysipelas in Monticello, MS on 7 August.

Family history relates that William's dad, Zebedee Pace, came from home in Marion County, MS to take William home from the hospital so he could better recover. However, William died in Monticello, MS before they reached home. William was single and had never been married nor had any children.

Relatives who served with William in company B are as follows.

Winston Morris - maternal uncle

William Franklin Pace - Private   
Frank Pace was a 1st cousin to my 2nd-great grandfather, John Guslin Pace, who was a member of company B with him. Frank was captured at Vicksburg, MS on 4 July 1863 with the balance of the 46th Regiment Mississippi Infantry. However, based on his service records, he did not return to his unit once exchanged.

He was subsequently captured in his home county of Marion in Mississippi on 6 Dec 1864 by Federal troops under the command of General John W. Davidson. He was transferred to the Federal prisoner of war camp on Ship Island, MS until the war was over a few short months later.

Shortly after the war in 1866, Frank was assassinated from ambush by Lorenzo Dow Cox as he (Frank) traveled down a road just east of Columbia, Marion County, MS. Former Confederate deserters had recently tried, on 2 different occasions, to murder Cox due to his effective service as a Confederate scout searching for and pointing out deserter camps to Confederate troops in the woods and swamps in the Marion County, MS area during the last 2 years of the war. Frank's brother, James M. 'Jim' Pace, was known by Cox to have been one of the ringleaders of this group of deserters who had tried to kill him. Cox mistakenly killed Frank instead because at a distance he and Jim looked so much alike. Just to note, Jim Pace took the hint and quickly and secretly moved and settled his wife and children far away from Lorenzo Cox in State Line, Wayne County, MS before Cox could finish the job. Jim Pace (1836-1921) lived to be an old man. But his brother Frank paid the ultimate price for his failed attempts to kill Lorenzo Cox.

Frank had several family members serving in company B with him.

John Guslin Pace - 1st cousin

Joseph S. Baker - Private   
Enlisted Summer of 1862 while reesiding in Lawrence County, MS and served 4 years. Absent for 35 days when cut off by Federal troops on Tennessee River.

Daughter Rilla retold story of her father -
Joseph Baker was serving in the Confederate Army. He and a buddy was alone traveling on foot. Night came with no houses or barns to take cover in so they lay down beside the rode on the ground even though it was very cold. During the night it began to snow, covering them with several inches of snow.
The next morning a noise awoke Joseph's buddy and he sat up to see what it was. It was a troop of Yankee soldiers and as he sat up one of them shot him.
Joseph was very scared and stayed as still as possible. The Yankees kept marching and didn't check any further.
When Joseph got home from the war, in was in rags with no shoes. His wife, Sarah, arranged a bath for him outside and immediately took his clothes and burned them.
He and the clothes were covered with lice.
From being in the cold without shoes, Joseph's feet were frost bitten. He could not stand any warmth on them so for the remained of his life, he slept with his feel uncovered even in freezing cold weather.
