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

Company C – Amite County Minute Men.

Butler, J.W. 4th/3rd Sgt, drafted 12 Jul 1862, deserted 7 Dec 1862, returned 20 Feb 1863.

This record fits with the family story that JW went home for a short visit to his pregnant wife. Union troops surrounded the area outside his home and he was unable to return to his unit. He hid out in the hills near Brushy Creek (behind his home) for nearly 3 months. He hid in the red clay hills and spent daylight there, carving a wooden chair out of nearby brush. Some nights he was able to sneak home and visit his family. The baby, JW Jr., was born on Feb. 6. JW Senior was able to return to his unit 2 weeks later.

Seaborn Morris - Private   
Seaborn is one of my 3rd-great grandfathers. Born on 21 May 1818, he was 43 years old when the war broke out in 1861. He was compelled to join when the original Confederate draft law of April 1862 was expanded in September 1862 to include all healthy white males between the ages of 18 and 45. By then he was only 44 and within the draft age range.

Although Seaborn's name appears as a member of company G, family knowledge relates that he never actually joined the army. He paid a man by the name of Burrow to join as 'Seaborn Morris'. The most plausible person that could have been was a 55-year old Marion County, MS resident by the name of John Burrow. There is no evidence that John Burrow ever enlisted in any Mississippi or Confederate military units. 'Seaborn Morris' had a very short military career. He enlisted in Columbia, Marion County, MS on 21 July 1862 and was discharged on 15 August 1862 for 'disease of the hand received in camps'.

Meanwhile, the real Seaborn Morris hid out from state and Confederate conscription authorities, who were likely not fooled for too long by the Burrow illegal substitution. According to Seaborn's own account many years later as an older man, he had a one-room, windowless and doorless cabin in a remote location in the woods in which he stayed during this time. His escape hatch was a trap door built into the floor of the cabin, which would allow him to slip out and underneath the raised floor of the cabin if anyone ever discovered his hidden abode. During this time he would supplement his diet with fishing. He primarily used catalpa worms, from catalpa trees in the area around his hideout, as his bait.

In his latter years (he was 96 when he died in 1914), he declared this to be the saddest period in his life because 2 of his little girls died during this time. The first daughter to die was 14-year old Sarah Matilda who died 2 October 1862. The second was 5-year old little Mary who died on 2 November 1864. Since he was a wanted man by the authorities, he couldn't dare go near either his house or the funerals during this time. His hideout was close enough that he could hear the girls caskets being built and the funeral attendees singing hymns at the graveside. But he was unable to either console himself or his wife and children due to his precarious situation.
