Eli Simmons - Private   
Just researching my great, great grandfather, Eli Simmons, from Copiah County, Mississippi. My research has shown that he was initially in Company H of the 12th Mississippi Infantry Regiment, and was later a part of Company E of the 4th Mississippi Calvary Regiment under Nathan Bedford Forrest.

He ended the war being surrendered at Citronelle, AL by General Richard Taylor on May 5th, 1865. I believe he was present when NB Forrest gave his farewell address in Gainsville, AL on May 9th. He was paroled on May 12th in Gainsville, AL
