"units", so I've done more research!! According to the
"Annals of Miss. Military" (the only book I can find on
Miss. Rebels here in Montana), J. W. Powell was with
the 42d Miss. Regiment--Col. Hugh Miller of Pontotoc,
Miss Commander, attached to Gen Joseph R. Davis
Brigade, Gen. Harry Heth Division, Gen A.P. Hill Corps,
Army of No. VA. J. W. was listed in the muster roll of
the Senatobia Invicibles, No. 2, Company B. 42d Miss.
Regiment. Now--everyplace on the internet mentions
Infantry, Artillery, etc. How do I find that out? Does all
this military organizational stuff sound correct?
Thanks so much for your help!!
- Hey Peg, Wow. Sounds like you ve really got your family history down. Do you have any pictures or personal effects of your soldierMessage 1549 of 1549 , Feb 19, 2002View SourceHey Peg, <br><br>Wow. Sounds like you've really

ancestors?<br><br>The William Grigsby I found was in the 103rd Illinois
but was killed in TN. Sort of ironic. I shot a few
pictures of some of the old graves at the cemetery. I'd be
happy to email you a copy of William Grigsby's marker.
