Thanks for the reply.I would be interested in the information from his pension application and I am sure that my friend Rich Holler would also.Do you have his Compiled Service Record from the Miss Archives?
A capsule history of the 9th Miss.may be found at the MS Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV), history page at http://www.mississippiscv.org/mississippi_history.htmhttp://www.mississippiscv.org/mississippi_history.htm. (www.mississippiscv.org is the homepage address.) These capsule histories also contain information on counties of formation for each company (where known). If you like these histories, contact our superb webmaster, Henry Irving, and let him know that you appreciate all his hard volunteer efforts!
Information on individual soldiers is found in each soldier’s Compiled Service Record (CSR). Additionally, if a soldier served in more than one unit, he would have a CSR for each unit. I would suggest that you order this soldier’s/these soldiers’ CSR(s) from the MS Dept. of Archives & History (faster and about the same price as ordering through the National Archives; slower but much cheaper than ordering through Broadfoot). The MDAH is on-line at http://www.mdah.state.ms.us/http://www.mdah.state.ms.us/
