Co. Alfred A. Russell
- From John R. Kennamer's "History of Jackson County".
"After the surrender Russell went to Mexico, brought a coffee farm and never returned on a visit to the county until 1880. He never took the oarth of allegiance to the United States and have his citizenship returned to him."
Another source says that it was Cordoba Mexico where he went.
Many of those who did not take the oath of allegiance went to Brazil (10,000-20,000) and settled mostly in and around Sao Paulo. There is a town 100 miles northwest of Sao Paulo called Americana that was settled by Confederates. Those who immigrated came mostly from GA, AL, TX, SC, MS, LA. Another town is called New Texas.
