trying to follow unknown branches of my family and have found much
activity (marriages and Civil War) in Sumter Co. I know much
about Henry Hillard Martin and
his wife Elizabeth (Bettie) Bryant. However, I lost three
brothers of Henry; Simuel, Dave, and Millas. The latter two were
killed in the Civil War. I am assuming that since Henry
signed up with Alabama 5th Inf, possibly brothers did also. I'm
currently awaiting muster rolls, but I didn't see them on the
Livingston Monument list. Also, found a "Lietenant JW "Dick" Bryant" on Muster and wondered if he
was related to Alexander Clinton
Bryant of Sumter Co (the father of Elizabeth).
have reviewed a pension request submitted by my great
A. Jones. It indicates he enlisted in the 5th Ala regiment
county in 1861. I have not been able to find his name on any muster
but I do have sworn statements by 3 listed members (W. R. Deloach, James
C. Arrington, J. H. Holmes)
saying he was a member. All evidence is that C. A. Jones
was a fine, brave solder. He was wounded several times and
lost an arm. He was captured near Appomatox near the end and spent a
limited time held prisoner by what he called "the Federals".
