Company D
Jacob W. Glenn - Unknown   
Jacob W. Glenn and William M. Glenn, sons of William Glenn 1795 of North Carolina arrived in Texas between 1840 and 1845 and enlisted in Company D of the Tenth Texas Infantry Regiment. Both of the Glenn brothers were enrolled at Fairfield, Freestone County Texas on 26 October 1861 by Captain William Wilson. They were mustered into Company D on 31 October 1861 by Lieutenant Sparks at Hempstead Texas which was probably their Camp of Instruction. Their term of enlistment was “for the war“.

Jacob Glenn was listed as absent for sick furlough from 12 February 1862 to 30 August 1862, he apparently became ill and spent the time in a hospital in Little Rock Arkansas. From 31 December 1862 until 30 June 1863 he was listed as missing in the Trans-Mississippi Department. The November - December 1863 muster contained the following remark: “Deserted the cause in Trans-Mississippi Department, date unknown“.

William M. Glenn was captured at Arkansas Post and shipped on a Steamboat to St. Louis Missouri then by train to Camp Douglas Illinois. Camp Douglas was the notorious Union prison camp described as the “Andersonville of the North”. Confederate soldiers were deprived of their winter clothing and many, including William, became ill and died. William M. Glenn died of pneumonia at Camp Douglas on 15 February 1863. He was buried at Oak Woods Cemetery near Chicago Illinois along with hundreds of other confederate prisoners.

Jacob and William Glenn had two brothers in law that served with them in the 10th Texas. Levi Lee was married to Missouri Glenn and Robert Lee was married to Amanda Glenn. Robert Lee was mustered into service listed along with Jacob and William Glenn on 31 October 1861 along with Jerry W. Lee and Jesse G. Lee.

Levi Lee who was a bit older than the other Lee’s at age 29 enrolled on 12 December 1861 at Fairfield, Freestone County, Texas. He was mustered into Company D on 20 December 1861 by Lieutenant Barton at Camp Hebert, Virginia Point, near Galveston Texas. On 9 September 1862 Levi was detailed as a teamster.

Jacob Glenn, Levi Lee, and Robert Lee were all listed as missing in the Trans-Mississippi Department from 31 December 1862 to 30 June 1863. This is the period of the Battle of Arkansas Point and subsequent imprisonment at Camp Douglas.

A detachment of soldiers from Company D, Tenth Texas Infantry, were not captured at Arkansas Post and joined the Twelfth Texas Infantry Regiment, forming the core of Company L. of that regiment. Jacob Glenn, Levi Lee, and Robert Lee were all identified in Company L, Twelfth Texas Infantry Regiment in the March to April muster. The other Lee family members were also identified in the Twelfth. There is no clear length of their service with the Twelfth which was disbanded at Hempstead Texas in the spring of 1865. There was some speculation that Robert may have died since Amanda remarried shortly after the war but there is currently no evidence to support this theory.

Little Rock Ark. May the 5th 1862

Dear beloved wife and children,

I once more embrace the present opportunity of writing a few lines to let you know that I am still in the land of the living and as well as common, hoping when this finds it’s way to you that it will find you all enjoying of good health and the richest of blessings my dear wife and children. My eyes fill with tears when I think of you, and must know that I think of you very often, for my God and Savior Jesus Christ and you and my children. I long to see you once more, and if it be my heavenly master’s will, I shall meet you once again but if it be not the will of God we don’t but go on and be faithful and serve your heavenly father, and we will meet each other in that world where man’s hills, lakes nor vales, can separate us no more but there we can live and sing praise god and his holy angels together for ever and ever but I do trust to my redeemer that I shall see your lovely faces once more for you may rest assured that of all the pleasures that could be granted to me upon this earth, that would be the greatest at this time and I do trust to my God that it will be shortly. Now Gracey I do trust and pray for return to the embrace of your beloved arms and to my dear beloved children once more. Now as I have addressed you with feeling of my sole, I will try to write something else. Now my dear friend, I won’t you to compose yourself to the very best you can, read your bible and teach our dear children to love and serve God and to work and try to make a living, and to tell the truth and to love their country. Tell my beloved brothers and sisters that I am still on my march toward the holy and happy land. Tell them that they are held sacred at the throne of grace every night by me, before I sleep. And tell them to go on and be faithful in Christ and warn sinners to flee from the wrath to come. And build up our church and may God add daily such to his church as he would have to be saved, tell them that our dear beloved brothers that are here with me in arms is well and are still pressing onward and upward and hold them sacred at the throne of grace. Now I will leave you in the care of our great deliverer and God the giver of all good gifts, my dear beloved family I will now say to you that the lord blessed me with the opportunity of meeting with my dear old father and my step-mother once more in this life and it greaves my harte to have to say to you that I was not permitted to stay with them one night but I thank the Lord that I got to see him that long for I have no doubt but that is the last time in this world to see papa any more, for just one week before I got there he was struck with dread palsy on one side, he appeared to be resigned to his masters will and said he was willing now to go, he said all he wanted to know was to know where we was, and to know that we was well. He said he would write to you soon if he lived and he said if he died to tell our dear little baby George that Grandpop had a mighty nice little pony for him and he had two-hundred and eighty acre’s of land and plenty of everything else around him and he wants you all to have it. And if I should get back and if Ebb and George all they have to do is to come and get it. He lives about twelve miles west of Cron from Arkdelpha near Degray P.O., Clark County, Arkansas. Mother was well but nobody to help her, only as she hired. They say that they want to see you all very much, and say if they live until I am turned loose that if I will come by, and sell out their land and property they will go home with me. So if I have good luck to live and be discharged anywhere in this country I shall fetch them home with me. We are now camped four miles from Little Rock, and the calcolutons is that at this time to stay here several days. I have received nary cent yet but the Colonel say’s that we shall be paid off the 28th of this month, there is so many roomers about the battles and consearning of this war tha I will not say anything about what is going on, so no more at present only I wont you to be sure to write soon as you get this. And direct your letter in this way. Mr. M. H. Johnston a private in Capt. McKamey Camp, Colonel A. Nelson Reg. Texas volunteers, Little Rock Ark. So farewell until I hear from you. M. H. Johnston to Gracy M. Johnston and Children
