Alfred Johnson was captain of a 100 man independent Spy Company raised in Collin County. Capt. Johnson married Melissa Kitchens of Warren in Fannin County. The Warren (Warren Supply Depot,Old Fort Warren) area was located in the vacinity of the Caney Creek community which is where Savoy, Texas was later established. Savoy Texas was established after the war by Col. Savoy. He probably received the rank of colonel in the War of 1812. No trace of Warren can be found today. Col. Almarine Alexander's 34th Texas "Plowhorse" Cavalry had many recruits from the Caney Creek area of Fannin County.
After the 14th Brigade, T.S.T. was disbanded, my great grandfather Joshua Coffee, enlisted in Capt.John H. Damron's Spy Company (Co. C), Col.P.C. Hardeman's 1st Texas Cavalry (formerly of the Arizona Brigade) at Warren. Before being elected capatin in the 1st Texas Cavalry, 1st Lt.J.H. Damron was in Capt. William Dulaney's Company, Caney Creek Mounted Volunteers, Fannin County, 14th Brigade, T.S.T. Rev.Benjamin Blanton, founder of the Blanton Chapel near Leonard, Texas, and Eli Blanton, both my great grandmother's brothers, also enlisted in the 1st Texas Cavalry at the Warren Supply Depot and served in that unit throughout the war and were paroled at Hempstead, Texas. Eli Blanton went to Gonzales, Texas where he died in 1867 of either cholera or yellow fever, that he caught in the epidemic that ravaged that vacinity and especially Navasota, Texas after the war.
Joseph F.Thompson, age 25, enlisted in Capt.J.W. Throckmorton's - McKinney's Militia Company, Collin County, 15th Brigade,T.S.T. Throckmorton's Company was mustered into Confederate service on August 31, 1861.
Major Joseph F. Thompson (1831-1863), was among the non-Cherokee field and staff officers in Col. Stand Watie's Cherokee Mounted Volunteers. Col. Watie's regiment was enrolled at Frozen Rock, I.T. (Muskogee Co.,OK). Major Joe Thompson was from the Thompson Community (Snow Hill) in Collin County. I wonder if Maj. Joseph F. Thompson was KIA or died of disease.
