Dr. J. E. Mayfield Obituary

(Contributed by Scott Fitzgerald)

From the Confederate Veteran, Vol. XXXIII, March, 1925, No. 3, Page 105:

"Dr. J. E. Mayfield.

Dr. J. E. Mayfield died suddenly on October 23, 1924, at his home in San Antonia, Tex., at the age of eighty-one years. He had been an invalid for several years. He was a native of Tennessee, but for more than a half century had been a resident of Texas.

Dr. Mayfield was born in McNairy County, Tenn., February 25, 1843. At the age of nineteen he enlisted in the Confederate army as a sergeant of Company G, 8th Texas Infantry, January 1, 1862. He was transferred to Troop H, Fourth Texas Cavalry, November, 1863. Later, he was transferred to Green's Brigade, then to Hardaman's Brigade, and still later to the Department of Mississippi, and served there until paroled in 1865.

At the close of the war he was made district clerk of Nacogdoches County and served until 1867. He entered Tulane University in 1869 and took up the study of medicine. Graduating two years later, he returned to Nacogdoches County and practiced medicine until he moved to San Antonio in 1909.

Dr. Mayfield is survived by his wife, a brother, and a sister.

The funeral was held under the auspices of the Albert Sidney Johnston Camp, U. C. V., of which he was an active member for several years."
