The Tennessee in the Civil War Message Board

Alex Thomas Anderson

I'm trying to help a patron track down the Civil War ancestor of a patron. Alex Thomas Anderson was born in Mississippi in 1842 and died in 1907 in Arkansas. His widow stated he was in a Mississippi regiment but I can't read the commander's name. Is anyone familiar with it? He and his mother were in Shelby County, TN in 1860 so his widow may be mistaken on the Mississippi part. (left hand page)
