Yes, please do check as I am wanting to know if this is part of the Price family which arrived in 1836 when Arkansas was admitted to the Union as a slave state. My Price/Guthrie connections floated the White River into what is now White County on rafts bringing everyone. In the Price family, it was two brothers and their mother out of the Spartanburg District of South Carolina. It was also all of their many children, and their wives.
If M.R. Price was one of mine, it will say he was a native of South Carolina if he was actually 32. If it says 22 was the age, then he would have been born in Arkansas if he was one of mine.
I was scanning the 8th trying to find out something when I came on Price's name.
I have an interest in the 8th because my ancestor, Sgt. J. D. Pearce was with the 8th and he was shot at Shiloh, "through and through." Because his brother came from nearby Mifflin, Tenn. and took him home for medical care, he survived. Pearce sat out on July 4 walking from western Tenn. to catch up with the 8th who I believe had moved on to Kentucky by then.
There are supposed to be two books on the 8th in the works. I wish that
one of the authors would finish his book as I would love to read it.
Thanks so much for you kind offer.
