Was glad to read this history, as I am named for Edwin Brown Rembert who served with the 4th Cav. I believe he signed up in mid Jan. 1864 in Brandon. I have a small New Testament given to him on Jan. 15, 1864 in Brandon by the local Methodist minister, a Rev. Ellsworth (hard to read). He was 15 at the time. He died a few days after the surrender in May or June '65, in west Alabama, and is buried in the Fannin, MS Methodist Church cemetery. In 2009 several SCV members of that church helped me and the lady historian at the church in getting a Confederate Marker put at his grave and about 8 re-enactors marched in and fired a salute to commemorate his service. I spoke a few words at the time about our family; E. B. Rembert was my ggrandmother's brother. She was Mrs. J. S. Rea of Wesson.

Not sure of his company. If any of you fellows have any details of his service, I would appreciate.
