Murray was a member of the militia unit the Hayneville Guards that was organized in 1859. He was enrolled on April 17, 1861 for 12 months in Captain J. J. Willingham's Company at Hayneville, Lowndes County Alabama. He enlisted with the rest of the Hayneville Guard on May 16, 1861 in Montgomery Alabama and became Company E, 6th Alabama Volunteer Infantry Regiment. March 1862 the Army of Northern Virginia was re-organized and Company E became Company M. He was serving as a sharpshooter. He appears to have been transferred to the 5th Alabama Infantry before or after he was wounded (when and where). He was on leave when he was captured at Petersburg Virginia. He was finally paroled on June 17, 1865 and had to walk home a long way from Point Lookout Maryland to Lowndes County Alabama. Contributed by Caroline Burnett Cook and Carolyn Golowka

On Feb. 5, 2003, James D. Allen, creator of this website passed away
There is no doubt that he would want the work on the
6th Alabama Infantry to go on.
With that in mind, this site is dedicated to him.
We miss you, Jimmy.
