Thanks for the reminder on Solomon Moore's fate. Poor Solomon's ending was the same as many of the men out of White County-tragic.
Out of the male connections in my history, my ancestor,Lt. Fielding Price, died of smallpox on Feb. 1, 1865.
Both of Fielding's brother-in-laws, Frederick and Owen Guthrie of the 10th Arkansas who lived in White County until round about 1858, died in the service of the Confederacy. Owen was no more than a kid when shot at Shiloh in April of 62 so I am sure it took him a long time to die.
Frederick Guthrie was two years older when captured down at Natchez, and he lived less than a year in prison.
Solomon Moore who was captured on July 4th at Helena was a brother-in-law of Fielding Price and married to his sister. My gg grandfather Sgt. Pleas Loyd son-in-law of Fielding, of the 36th walked home from Texas when the war was over, but died within the year.
Frederick Price, brother of Fielding, rode with Sterling Price on his trip north, and lived to die in White County.
Fielding Guthrie, who was with the 10th and had moved over to Pope County, survived.
Edmund Guthrie, was with the 35th, I believe Bryan or someone said, when he deserted in Little Rock in May of 1863 and joined the Union Cav, so he survived. His older brother Nelson, a former resident of White County who was with a milita group also lived.
I bring all of this up because I think people need to understand the losses and suffering of these people.
It was through the aid of folks like Bryan that I have been able to learn about my family history.
I have shared all of this not to do anything except to give some insight into how sad the situation actually was. There were no real winners as I feel sure that the some of the Union losses were just as bad.
