HIGGINS, John H., Private Company E, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment -(Survivor of the War) There is a question as to which soldier is which

My name is Ricky Higgins, I have been researching, my ggGrandfather, John Henry Higgins, whom I Believe was a private in thE, 6th Alabama Infantry, in new company E. I have learned through a cousin, That John Henry fought in the civil war and survived. I have a copy of a May 15th 1861, 6th Alabama payroll, and it shows a J H Higgins signing for pay of thirty-seven dollars. Your web site lists a John H. Higgins in Company E's muster roll. John Henry lived in the Waterloo Alabama area, and could have enlisted, when they came through his home area.  Photo by Barry N. Wyatt

ThE, 6th was in Corinth Mississippi on the 2nd June 1861, and crossed the river somewhere in his home area. This is where I get confused, as the payroll was signed presumably in the Montgomery area. He may have gone to Montgomery, and joined, but it is doubtful is there any way to prove that my ggGrandfather John Henry Higgins, is the same John H Higgins, listed in the muster roll of new Company E, and the J H Higgins, that signed the payroll in May 1861? 

My ggGrandfather was born in 1822 and died in 1904, I have a copy of a picture, of him this quest to prove this consumes me, for you know what a proud tradition thE, 6th has, and if I can prove this I'm going to get a Confederate footstone for his grave. He is buried in the Mount Olive Cemetery, in Lauderdale County, Alabama. Thanks in advance, and I will be sending you a contribution. Source: Ricky Higgins

Hinkle...He answered the first call of his country and went to Pensacola in the company of Captain Duval's Independent Rifles...He returned home in January 1861, and in May following, he went to Virginia with his company and regiment, the immortal 6th Alabama. He was in the Battle of Manassas of July 1861...Battle of Seven pines...In this battle he was somewhat seriously wounded in the head. He came home to recover....later he left for Virginia. He was in Hill's Division of the Army, and with it was engaged in the Battle of Sharpsburg, and the young hero fell...Had he lived, he would be 21 years of age next January..."

RENNEAU, Louis L. (Sergeant, Company E, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) Louis Lafayette Reneau was born August 20, 1834 in Jefferson County, Tennessee the son of Reverend Russell Reneau (1807-1865) a Presiding Elder in the Methodist Church both in the Georgia and Arkansas Conferences and Elizabeth Stockton (1808-1888). He died, according to the Reneau-Richter Family Bible (c.1836), which is in my possession, on May 3, 1863 at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia.  His brother, 1st Sergeant Russell R. Reneau of Thomasville, Georgia was in the 50th Georgia and had been killed the preceding September 14, 1862 at the Battle of South Mountain, Maryland.  Sergeant Reneau was my Great-Grand Uncle.  I have no other personal details about him. However, there has been some mention in the past that Louis Reneau may have married a America Melvina Parker (b. 1836).  She was a daughter of Reverend James Parker and Martha Carlisle of the Alabama Conference of the Methodist Church, but I have no details to confirm this possibility, nor do I know if they had any children from this possible union.  Source: John R.

STONE, George B., (Private Company E, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) George Barton Stone born March 29, 1837 to Barton Warren Stone (March 24, 1800 - January 14, 1884) and Caroline Walton Stone (September 18, 1811 - October 9, 1841). His parents are buried in the Stone Family Cemetery at "Magnolia Crest" near Burkville in Lowndes County. He enlisted on May 15, 1861. He was wounded in the battle at Seven Pines, Virginia and died as the result on June 9, 1862. Note: Although a monument to his memory stands in the family cemetery in Lowndes County and his name appears on a monument at Oakwood Cemetery in Montgomery honoring the fallen soldiers in his unit, it is believed that his is buried at Oakwood Military Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia. .At present, I am trying to gain more information from the Richmond Enquirer. Source: Ken Berner; It would seem that George's body was transported from Richmond, Virginia back to Alabama due to the receipts for his coffin asking for a zinc lining. See these receipts on the Stone Family Cemetery website. Photo from Bill Stone

"The Stone Mansion & Cemetery are located on property in Lowndes County that is now part of GE Plastic's plant site, where I work. George B. Stone has an obelisk in the cemetery next to his parents graves. It states that he enlisted in Company E of thE, 6th Infantry & was wounded at the battle of seven pines and later died from those wounds. It doesn't say whether he was home or still in Virginia, but is worded as if what was inscribed, was some of his last words. When I was reading it, I got the impression that maybe he made it home before he died, but that may not be the case. His grandfather, Warren Stone, is buried there and the DAR placed a marker for him in 2001 claiming he is a Revolutionary War Veteran. He would have been only about 15 years old in 1784 near the end of the war, but it was not uncommon for such young boys to have enlisted and fought. The Mansion has been restored by GE and is in extremely good condition." Barry N. Wyatt
