Confederate Veteran mag., dated Augusat, 1928, page 349. MARYLAND VETERANS- Writing , Col. Oswald Tilghman, of Easton, Md., says" I am the last surviving Confederate veteran now living in Talbot County, Md. On the monument to the ' Boys of the South' from this county, standing in front of our courthouse in Easton, there are 83 names, including those of Gens. Trimble and Winder. During the seige of Port Hudson, La., in 1862-63, I was one who survived the seige. The others were Capt. Fred Williams, Lieut. Bledsoe and Phenix, all of Nashville, Tenn. I celebrated my 87th birthday on March 7, 1928." -- [ this is not my family, hope someone may interesting].
