    Re: Civil War In Mississippi

    Grierson's Raiders (USA) moved through Brookhaven, burning the train depot and destroying rolling stock and rails. They moved on down the route of the Illinois Central Railroad. They originally crossed the Pearl River at Georgetown and travelled over to Hazlehurst; burned and destroyed the depot (at Hazlehurst) and a lot of rolling stock and stored cotton and equipment. From Hazlehurst, they moved west to Galatin, then to Centerpoint (later named Glancy) where they camped for a day or 2. Then they cut back over to the Illinois Central rail line south of Hazlehurst at Bahalia (later named Beauregard) to burn the depot there. Then proceeded south to Wesson and Brookhaven. They pretty well destroyed all depots and rolling stock at each stop south of Hazlehurst all the way down to Osakia (misspelled) which is almost at the Mississippi / Louisiana line.

    You need to check Grierson's written report as published in the ORs because he names some family named plantations where he and his troops stopped to camp, rest, and scout. The info I've mentioned is pulled strictly from memory and there may be something I've forgotten since I read that report.
    U.S. Highway 51 follows the railroad line pretty closely, so if you follow that road, about ALL of the RR stops on that whole route were destroyed by the Yanks.

    Good luck and good hunting.

    Re: Civil War In Mississippi

    Thanks alot for the info. shortstack. A couple of years ago my wife took me to a very old cemetary on her grandpas property. Its behind a iron fence. It was overgrown with trees and tall grass........no family of the folks buried there. I recall that there were alot of children and babies buried, wifes grandpa told me that at the time the people were buried, maybe early 1800s or late 1700s I dont recall,there was some bad disease or something that killed alot of people.
    The headstones were made of some type of metal. As I understand it there were homes and possibly a church nearby but its all gone now. I would never ever hunt on the cemetary part! But I will certainly try to hit the areas relatively close by, maybe figure out where homes may have been. The thing I remember most about the little cemetary was the gate had a brass handle and it wasnt tarnished!
    I knew that while in the Army our brass had to be cleaned as it tarnished quite quickly if not taken care of. Maybe it was made from something else I dont know but I remember thinking that it was odd for it to be so shiny. Ann, my wife, tells me it has always been that way. Creepy!!! I took pictures the time I went there. I have recently stored alot of pix on CD as I had so many and odds are they were with those. I will take more today to show everyone what it looks like. Thanks for the link RR. Wish I had enough time to check all those places out!

    This is a good point. This law came because there was a rash of vandalizing of cemeteries around the state. There was a law already "on the books" that required landowners with landlocked cemeteries on their properties, to allow "reasonable" access to these graveyards for visitation and upkeep. My Mother told me of a family cemetery (some of our ancestors) that was destroyed by the land owner in the process of logging out his place. This person is a member of our family to boot. It's thought that he may have built his new home on the site. I told her that I hope some of our ancestors from that spot "visit" cuz some nights to let him know how disappointed they are with his decision.

    I'm almost positive that shanegalang has NO intention to disrespect that old cemetery. He'll probably do just the opposite by cleaning it up.

    Hey, Shane. If any of those grave markers mention the CW or Revolutionary war; you might consider reporting them to the local Sons of Confederate Veterans or Daughters of Confederate Veterans or the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). They try to locate and record the locations of vets' graves. They do not try to take over the land or anything like that.

    I just used "spell check" and it suggested the substitution of "changeling" in place of "shanegalang". Hey, Mark. Out of curiosity, what sources did you base your Spell Check on when setting it up for TNet?

    Re: Civil War In Mississippi

    Well guys this is great info. but like I said I would never even attempt to "hunt" that area! I say that because of my moral beliefs, I would never disrespect the dead that way. I have suggested to my grandfather in law that I would like to take a week end up there and clean the little cemetary up. He used to keep it in great shape I'm told, but hes grown quite old and unable to take on this task now. I will see what info. I can get on it and take appropriate action. It would be an awesome task to research it. I'll inform as to what I find out.
