My gr gr grandfather was Moses Lee Whitten b. 1832 d. 1893 May 1861 he went to Richmond, VA., and was commissioned Chaplain of the Ninth Alabama Regiment, which position he held till the close of the war. During the Civil war he was captured during the Battle of Gettysburg, where he was exchanged for four Union soldiers.
Chaplain Moses Lee Whitten lived in Standing Rock, Stewart County, Tennessee in 1860. He was then 27 years old, listed as a Methodist minister and lived in Colbert County, Alabama in 1870 according to online sources. The 9th Alabama infantry, organized at Richmond in May, 1861, enjoyed the distinction of having a joint resolution of thanks given it by the Confederate Congress in February, 1864. It was engaged in the siege of Yorktown, April 5 and May 2, 1862; at Williamsburg, May 5th, and at Seven Pines, May 31st and June 1st. This regiment won imperishable renown at Gaines' Mill and Frayser's Farm, was under fire at Second Manassas, and assisted at the capture of Harper's Ferry, September 12 to 15, 1862. It was also engaged at Chancellorsville and Salem, May 1-3, 1863, and suffered very heavy loss at Gettysburg. It was in the battle of the Wilderness, May 5-7, 1864, Cold Harbor, June 1st to 12th, and fought in the trenches at Petersburg for nearly 9 months.

In Critical issues in American religious history: a reader by Robert R. Mathisen, J.J. D. Renfroe, a chaplain with the 10th Alabama, said that 'Mr.Whitten of the Ninth remained at Gettysburg with the wounded.'
The day following General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Court House, Major James M. Crow, 9th Alabama, writes a pass for this Confederate chaplain, who had been a Union prisoner. 'The bearer M.L. Whitton (sic), Chaplain 9th Ala Regt. A Paroled Prisoner of the Army of Northern Virginia has permission to go to his home and there remain undisturbed. - Jas. M Crow - Maj(or) Commdg 9th Ala, - Forney’s Brigade'
