Dear Debbie: Thanks you so very much for your kind mail and information. I did not have your Brave Ancestor, Pvt. L. D. Williams listed among the killed or mortally wounded of the "Bloody Sixth Mississippi" as they were known. Until further research is completeld on him I will have to assume that he is buried among the 525 Unknowns within the McGavock Confederate Cemetery either in the large Unknown Section or in one of the various Unknown Grave within the MIssissippi Section.
Since his CSR stops at Aug, 1864 can you give me the citations for his death at Franklin,such as oral family history, family bible, etc. so that I can cite this in my research.
I am listing the members of the 6th Mississippi that I have listed at this time for you.
Company/Name Grave Sec. Grave Num.
Co. C. Pvt. L. D. Williams * * (Unk)
Co. F. Sgt. E.V. Barron 47 381
Co. G. Lt. B.T. Harris 47 382
Pvt. Jordan M. Moore 46 371
Co. K. Pvt. Abner Mills DB (1)
(1) DB=Distant Burial
Died of wounds in a Prison of War Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee and Buried in a Mass Grave in Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Confederate Circle, Nashville, Tennessee, (Marked).
Thank you again for your time and assistance to my research and If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact. If you would like any photographs from the Cemetery, please let me know and I would be happy to send you some.
Yours in the spirit of the South!
