Mr. James Gannon has a very nice book dealing mostly with
the 6th LA Infantry. All I have ever encountered tends to
show that it was composed mostly of men raised up from
Union & Sabine Parishes.
As I state elsewhere on this subject, Capt. Arthur McArthur
was from Sabine Parish, not Union Par. as cited by Booth.
Further, I believe Booth shows that McArthur was from Conn. This is also incorrect. He was from Limington, Maine. He was promoted to major and was killed at the first battle of Winchester ( VA ). According to my sources, he is buried in Winchester at what is called
"Stonewall Cemetery." I have done a considerable amount of
digging to ascertain who McArthur was.
L.J. Nash ( Co.B,17th LA ) & C. C. Nash ( Co. A, 6th LA ) were brothers. Their dad was Valentine Nash. There was once a community in Sabine called "Nashboro." I believe it
was named after them. I think it was located somewhere
close to the present day Toro community.
N. H. Bray was an early Baptist preacher in this region, &
was an associate of my GGGG-GF Rev. Wm. L. Sibley.
