James Baxley [b: 9/26/1838 d: 4/10/1919] & John Baxley [b: unk - d: 5/2/1863 at Chancellorsville] served with Company L 3rd Alabama. Jeptha survived the war despite his wounds. He was wounded in the left hand at Malvern Hill by Federal artillery on July 1st, 1862.  Ironically, he was shot again a year later to the day and almost to the hour at Gettysburg.  The Gettysburg wound was from a rifle slug entering his lower groin and exiting his right side.  Jeptha ended the war on September 19, 1864 at Winchester when he stayed behind with his badly wounded older brother James [3rd Alabama] and was captured north of Winchester, Virginia when the Brigade retreated from the field.  Both James and Jeptha spent the remainder of the war as POW's and were released in June 1865.  After the war, Jeptha moved back to Dothan Henry County Alabama and thence to Jackson County, Florida in 1892 buying a 400 acre farm.  The Florida pension file showed his old war wounds eventually made it impossible to farm.  Eventually he sold the farm and moved to Chipley, Florida.  Jeptha is buried in Chipley at Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery.  His wife Susie Richards Baxley lived in Chipley Florida and received a pension until her death on February 26, 1953 at age 96.

He is the son of Nertilla Hocutt and Torrance Culpepper Conner. He married 1st to Jane Culpepper on March 6, 1853 in Dooley County Georgia. Richard married 2nd to Susannah E. Monroe on August 1, 1858 in Henry County Alabama.

8th day of February 1907 Susan E. Conner filed a Widow's Pension Application where she states that Richard H. Conner died October 24, 1906 in Conecuh County Alabama. It also stated that Richard was a member of Company B, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment and was listed as a Carpenter on the Confederate Rolls. His Confederate Unit constructed structures, as needed for the Confederate Army. It stated Susan E. Conner also made the statement that he had fallen from a Tower he was building for the Confederate Army and was left with a limp and a serious "Hip Injury." Later on in years he could not walk at times due to this injury.

It states, Susan E. Conner was formerly on the 3rd Class Pension Roll of Conecuh County, Ala. Pension Roll #28841 on November of 1913. She was removed from the Pension Rolls by the Alabama State Board of Pension Examiners due to the board not being able to locate the Confederate Records of her husband Richard H. Conner.

Pension Application filed by Susan E. Conner, in Conecuh County, Alabama on July 6 1915 for the Reinstatement of her Pension, as a Widow of her husband Richard H. Conner. Her "Request for Reinstatement" was given on the 6th of 1915 and has credible persons of witness, who state what Confederate Unit Richard H. Conner served in. M. C. Kirkland, a Confederate Veteran states that Richard H. Conner served as a Private in Company B, 6th Alabama Regiment. There are also two other credible persons who witness and sign the Application. I believe M. C. Kirkland was a Pastor of Cedar Creek Baptist Church. Susan E. Monroe also states she was born on the 2nd day of April 1829. On the 6th of July 1915 she was "Reinstated" by the Board of Pension Examiners and given 3rd class pay of 97.60 per month as a Confederate Widow. Julia Ledyard,

I know very little of his war experiences.  I have a great aunt that remembers my great great grandmother, but not of Daniel Jasper. Daniel Jasper is buried along side his mother, wife and brothers in Pennington Texas, the home of my family.  Proudly engraved on his headstone is:  "Company B, 6th Alabama Regiment, C.

John Henry, Sr. was my great grandfather.  My grandfather, John Henry, Jr. was in turn, his only son.  My father, John Franklin Dominy, is also an only son.  I am his only son, John Robert Dominy.  I'm 35 (2000) years old and have done my part to "re-populate" this tenuously narrow branch of my family tree...  I have three sons and a daughter.

DOYLE, John J. (Private, Company B&L, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment)

DRIGGERS, Lafayette L. (Private, Company "B" 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) Lafayette DRIGGERS born about 1846 in Henry County Alabama died January 19, 1919 in Sabine Parish, Louisana the son of Elizabeth Driggers. Lafayette  married 1864 in Henry County, Alabama to Martha WARD (b. about 1846) the daughter of Cynthia Kirkland Armstrong WARD and William H. WARD of Henry County. It looks like he might have divorced his first wife, Martha Ward, and left at least four children by her. Martha died in Henry County Alabama. Additional info is that Lafayette married to Nancy Varner in LA and they had eight children. I haven't proved that this was the same man so you might want to make a note of that. A Lafayette Driggers is found on the 1866 state census in Henry County, so he did survive the war.  Patricia Long

HOLMES, Michael (Letters Home) (Private, Company B, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) Michael Holmes was born in Ausan County, North Carolina on July 22, 1827, the oldest child of James and Martha "Patsy" Thurman Holmes. James was born in North Carolina and Patsy was born in Tennessee in 1803.

Mike's father was "Lost" when Mike was 12 years old and he as the oldest son assumed responsibility for his family, which he moved to Henry County, Alabama in 1845. The family consisted of Mike, his mother Patsy, 5 sisters and 1 brother. They settled in Wesley a small town (then) which was about 7 miles northwest of Abbeville, Alabama. 

Mike's first wife whom he married on January 1, 1852 was Martha Howerton. Her brother , Mike's brother-in-law is the Lt. James M. Howerton also in the 6th Alabama Infantry and Cavalry. Martha Howerton Holmes died during childbirth of their first child also named Martha. 

Mike married Martha Eliza Roberts on July 17, 1860. Their first child Virginia was born after Mike reported to Montgomery with his unit. The company formed in Abbeville was called the Henry Grays as most of the men were from Henry County and was mustered into State service initially as Company A, 6th Alabama Volunteer Infantry.

Letters from Mike indicate the regiment arrived in Corinth, Mississippi on May 27, 1861, Lynchburg Virginia on June 12 and Manassas Junction Virginia on June 16, 1861.

Mike did not re-enlist at the end of his year, but returned home. He enlisted in a cavalry unit, Company E, 6th Alabama Cavalry in June, 1863. There is some confusion here as he initially said address his mail to Company E, 5th Alabama Cavalry. He sometime later says, Company E, 6th Alabama Cavalry. The people he refers to appear to be the same people in both units. Evidently several members of the 6th Alabama Infantry are also in the 6th Alabama Cavalry. This unit served in Southwest Alabama, Northwest Florida eastern Mississippi and appear to have been in the Atlanta campaign, but there are no letters from this period.

Mike survived the war and after the surrender returned home to Henry County where he was engaged in farming and other pursuits until his death on September 20, 1886. He is buried in the family plot at Judson Baptist Church, Henry County, Alabama.

He was survived by his wife Martha, and children: Virginia (1861-1933), Georgia (1864-1906), Edward (1866-1937), Alexander (1869-1912), Alabama (1872-1956), Hinton (1874-1952) and Annie (1877-1966). Note the names of Mike's daughters up to Annie. the Family has always understood that Mike wanted to name her Caroline. ggGrandson, Gordon Holmes now living in Las Vegas Gwoodh@aol.com

Needham Lee was a very substantial landowner and farmer. George at the age of 18 years came to Alabama and settled in Abbeville, Henry County, Alabama Soon after arriving in the county he became a clerk in a store and a few years later he went into the mercantile business for himself. Still later he began farming. Family History has: At the outbreak of the Civil War, George Newman entered the military company known as the Henry Grays as First Lieutenant and served until the surrender. After the war was ended, he resumed his farming, which vocation, he followed until his death. His wife, Sarah Lee Newman, passed away July 30, 1921. George Newman carried two 50-cent pieces in his pocket all through the war and when he came home after the war he gave the two pieces of money to his wife and told her to always keep them and she would never be broke. She kept them and a short time be­fore she passed away she told her daughter, Mrs. Mollie Martin, with whom she lived, to always keep the two coins. Mrs. Martin in turn gave them to her daughter, Eva Martin Carter and she still has them in her possession.

OATS, John A. (Private, Company B, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) John Alva Oates (who usually spelt his last name without the 'e') was born 1836 in Pike County Alabama and died July 25, 1863 of blood poisoning from wounds received at Gettysburg at the battle for Little Round Top. He was one of a family of at least eight children born to William and Sarah Oates, the owners of a poor farmstead near Troy in Pike County, southeast Alabama. Their oldest son, William Calvin Oates, later Governor of the State of Alabama, was born in 1833, and John was his junior by about three years. Astonishingly, after such a wild early history, both brothers then proceeded to qualify as lawyers and became pillars of their community. By the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861, John was considered "a gentleman of fine habits and character", who was, according to William, "very bright and popular with all who knew him."(4) John was the first of the Oates boys to go to war. He enlisted on May 11, 1861, and five days later was mustered into service as a private in Company A (the "Henry Grays") of the 6th Alabama Infantry, signing up in Abbeville, Henry County, for twelve months. He was twenty-four, and described in the muster rolls as 5'9" tall, with what must have been a striking combination of black hair, black eyes, and fair skin. 

John was with the 6th Alabama at the Battle of Manassas,  Meanwhile, back in Henry County, William Oates was recruiting men for the "Henry Pioneers", which would become Company G of the 15th Alabama Infantry, a three-year regiment. It left Abbeville on July 27, 1861 with William as its Captain "by common consent", and went into camp a few miles from the 6th Alabama. A few months later, John managed to arrange a transfer to be with his brother, and he joined Company G of the 15th Alabama at the end of November 1861. John was still a private, but the following Spring he was elected to the position of Third (Junior Second) Lieutenant, when First Lieutenant Isaac T. Culver resigned, resulting in the promotion of the company officers below him. January 1, 1863, saw another change in Company G as First Lieutenant Cornelius V. Morris became regimental commissary, thereby raising Henry C. Brainard to First Lieutenant, and John Oates to Second Lieutenant. William Oates remained Captain throughout this period, until the beginning of May 1863, when he was promoted to command of the regiment (to date from April 28). Brainard was then the new Captain of Company G, John his First Lieutenant, and young Barnett H. Cody the Second Lieutenant. http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~pardos/JohnOates.html

PARRISH, Jasper (Private, Company B, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) (Henry County) Richardson and Catherine Phillips Parish of Dale County and later Henry County had a son named Richardson J. The only documentation I found today on microfilm (Ron Head pointed me in that direction by way of cousin Margie) showed Jasper Parish appears on a Register of Claims of deceased Officers and Soldiers from Alabama which were filed for settlement in the Office of the Confederate States Auditor for the War Department. The claim was presented by Richardson Parrish, on February 24, 1863. Richardson and Catherine were married in Jasper County, GA, and appear on the 1830 census for that county. I believe, I am safe in saying that Jasper of the 6th Alabama Infantry is Richardson J. Parish/Parrish. The Kenneth K. Parish is also the son of Richardson and Catherine Phillips Parish.

THAMES, John J. (Private, Company B, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) John James Thames was born on September 17, 1834 in Talbotton, Talbot County, Georgia to Thomas John Thames from North Carolina and Levinia "Viney" Aaron from Randolph County, Georgia. He married Nancy Ann Peacock of Pulaski County, Georgia in Randolph County, Georgia on December 18, 1853. He and Nancy had two daughters, Amanda and Theodosia, in Georgia before moving to Dale County, Alabama in 1859 where several of his Thames and his wife's Peacock kin had already moved. He is the brother-in-law to Ansel and James A. Peacock. Double brother-in-law to James who married his sister Mary Ann Thames.

On March 4,1862 John and Nancy's daughter, Levinia, was born. The next day John enlisted in the Sixth Alabama Infantry, Company B, at Abbeville, Alabama. He changed his mind about going with the Sixth Regiment and instead joined as a Private for three years or the war on March 8, 1962 along with Nancy's brother, James A. Peacock, (who was married to John's sister, Mary Jane Thames), into the 33rd Alabama Infantry Regiment Company "G" , "The Daleville Blues", which was being formed at Daleville, Dale County, Alabama near their home. John later said, in the 1907 Covington County, Alabama census, that he didn't leave with the regiment until March 15, 1862. He was 27 years old.

After the fighting at Perryville, Kentucky Company "G" was occupying the second boxcar on the train south of Cleveland, Tennessee when it derailed. Many of soldiers were riding on top of the boxcars as was usual and that may have contributed to the numbers killed in the wreck. In this wreck John James Thames received a leg broken in two places near the hip. Possibly John was riding on the top of the boxcar. He was with the 67 soldiers taken to the hospital in Cleveland where he remained until Christmas eve of 1862 when he was furloughed to Daleville by order of the hospital surgeon to recover. He never fully recovered and walked with crutches the rest of his life. He was kept on the roles until his discharge at Eufaula, Alabama. He later drew a pension for his war service.

John's family were owners of a lot of land in the southern part of Alabama and northern Florida. He had purchased land from the U.S. Land office as early as 1860 and he added to it after the end of the war. He and Nancy had a son, John Alexander Thames , in 1863, Thomas Jefferson Thames , in 1866, Lincy Ann Dancy Dan Thames, in 1868, Timpay Thames  in 1872, Susan Ann Missouri Thames, in 1874, and William Allin Thames, in 1879.

His wife, Nancy, died in 1898 and John moved to Covington County, Alabama and remarried in 1899 to Arlinoche Coroxton. He then moved to Laurel Hill, Florida and lived there until he became feeble in 1922 when he moved to Samson, Geneva County, Alabama with his grandson. He died there on January 25, 1923 at the age of 89 years. He is buried south of New Brockton, Coffee County, Alabama at Bethany Baptist Church where he was one of the first deacons and representatives to the regional Baptist conference. And the church that his father, Reverend Thomas John Thames began in 1884 and pastored until his death in 1893. Most of the folks buried in that large cemetery are related to him. Willie W.

Freeman (twin 1876-1920) "The Henry County Register" May 22, 1874, More than ten years ago at the battle of Sharpsburg, Mr. F. M. Weems of this county was wounded by a minnie ball striking him near the hip and ranging around lodging somewhere in the small of the back. Numerous attempts have been made to find the ball, all of which have proven unsuccessful. For all these years, Mr. Weems has been more or less a sufferer from this wound, sometimes comparatively and then again confined to his bed. Of late, he has suffered a great deal, and now he is said to be at the point of death, not expected to live longer than a day or two a the the fartherest. Mr. Weems is a married man and the father of three children, marrying since wounded. P. S. Since writing the above, we have seen Rev. Gollard who is just from the bedside of Mr. Weems and he tells us that when he left Thursday morning Mr. Weems was dying. In all probability, the unfortunate man has breath his last ere this. "The Henry County Register" May 29, 1874, F. M. Weems to whom reference was made last week died Thursday evening and buried next day at Clopton. Rev Gollard preached his funeral.
