My Civil War Roots tie back to Tishomingo County, Mississippi.
The Nathan Goode family experienced the Civil War from the towns of Iuka and Corinth, MS by paying for it with their lives. Nathan had three sons when the Civil War began.
William T. Goode was 17 when he enlisted with the 2nd Mississippi Infantry Brigade. He was wounded at the battle of Seven Pines, Virginia and again at Antietam where he was captured and died from his wounds in a hospital in Fredrick, Maryland and is buried at the Mt Olivet Hospital Cemetery there.
John Henry was 24 when the war began and also a CSA soldier. He died in Shelby County, TN in 1864, I do not have a unit, or ordinal information for him.
James H. Goode was 27 when the war began and was the only surviving male member of the family. The 1890 Veterans census lists him as a veteran as well as several other census documents, but I have not been able to find his unit and ordinal on any document.
Nathan the family patriarch for my clan was listed in the book "Virginia Cousins" published in 1888 as a soldier in the CSA and was killed in 1862. Again, I am sorry to say I cannot find a unit or ordinal information. Nathan would have been 62 years of age at that time, and although I feel it unlikely he was a soldier, all family history passed down indicated he was a soldier of the CSA and killed during the war.
I have the census information for this line before the Civil War and for the only surviving male member after the war James. James lived in Iuka, Tishomingo County, Mississippi the rest of his life dying in 1928.
Anyone that could help in determining the units that James H. Goode, John Henry Goode, or Nathan Goode were part of would be appreciated. There is also family ties here with relatives in Northern Alabama with the same family name that fought with the CSA.
Thank you for any help.
