Married Amanda Julie "Jane" McGrew in Perry County December 1865. (Irvin and Alexander W. Stringer of Co. G were brothers-in-law after the war. AWS married Amanda F. Blackburn, younger sister of Irvin A.)
I want to share a story about a fellow from the 7th.  PVT Elisha Burt, Co D (Jeff Davis Sharpshooters) wounded at Murfreesboro and Resaca. (This is family lore).  He is buried at Bay Creek Cemetery in Lamar County.  He was born August 1820 and died 28 April 1912.  His cemetery marker says "Elijah", but it is Elisha.  He is the son of Christopher Burt buried in the Burt Cemetery in Marion County.  I know you have seen it.  Its the one on Hwy 98 East on the left as you go toward Columbia....on a hill, small with a Confederate flag flying.  Anyway, Elisha was the best friend of Ransom Fillingame of the Columbia Guards (spelled Fullighim on the roster I think).  Ransom was married to Caroline Whiddon (daughter of John Whiddon and niece of my Elias and Bennett).  Anyway, he (Elisha Burt) knew that Ransom had been killed at Summit and when he went home to recover from his wounds he went to see Caroline to tell her about her husband's death.  While she was nursing him back to health, they fell in love and married.(Caroline Whiddon Fillingame) She is buried in the Grantham Cemetery and according to his great-great grandson the family, because of distance, could not afford to have him buried beside his wife.

Alfred Farr
Rootsweb -
Note: Susan Stuart married first Alfred A. Farr who enlisted in the Confederate Army on 10-5-1861 at the age of 16. He was the owner, with his widowed mother, of the big Farr Plantation on Pearl River, five miles west of Picayune. They owned many hundreds of acres of land, thousands of cows and sheep and many slaves. When he enlisted in Captain Henry Pope's Company of Jeff Davis Sharpshooters, 7th Regiment of Mississippi Volunteers, he was a man of great wealth. He was captured 11-25-1865 [1863] at Rock Island, Illinois. Imprisonment and a Starvation diet had undermined his health. He was almost a skeleton when he arrived home, walking, ragged, lousy, and barefoot. He found that his mother had died while he was gone, the slaves had all been freed, his cattle and sheep stolen or had strayed off, his once beautiful and productive plantation deserted and grown up in weeds and all his fences burned. He lived for some time with a neighbor, James Stuart and on October 15, 1867, he married Susan the daughter of James Stuart. He died at the age of 36 and Susan remarried John Wesley Dees.

Lott, Nathan A. 24, not mustered, believed son of Abe Lott of Covington Co.
Email From Mitch Sanders Mitchangelia 2/8/2006 9:03:42 PM Central Standard Time
I don't have a quick answer, this may take more studying. I'm inclined to believe our Nathan A. Lott was son of Solomon and Martha (Warren) Lott.
He is listed in his mother's household as age 23 in 1860 Marion County.
There is also another Nathan Lott (age 34) in 1860 Marion County along with his wife Eliza (age 32).
Would you check with Jim Huffman for a pension lookup for this man and his wife?
Check out this excerpt from this site.
 Children of Joshua5 Lott and Rosanna Barnes were as follows:

288. i. William6 Lott; born circa 1832 MS; died between 1861 and 1865 Frankln, TN (Lott, Web of Kinship, p 8, said killed at Franklin, TN, as a member of Co. B, 7th Miss Inf.).
He appeared on the census of 1850 (Marion Co., MS 1850 (p 194). Wm. age 18 b MS).

In a message dated 2/8/2006 7:43:28 P.M. Central Standard Time, Gpthelastrebel writes:

“From: "Ted, Kay and Adam Conerly" <[email protected]&g... [Add to Address Book]
To: rskellie©mindspring.com
Subject: Stephen Conerly aka Connerly aka Connelly
Date: Jul 25, 2008 7:00 PM
Hello, Mr. Skellie.  My name is Ted Conerly, and I'd like to thank you for making so much information available about the 7th Miss Inf over the web.  Largely due to your work I was able to recently locate and even visit the burial place of my Great Great Grandfather Stephen Conerly in the Confederate Cemetery located within the Covington City Cemetery, Covington, Ga.  The Conerly name is often spelled "Connerly", and folks often spell it "Connelly" or "Connally" if they just hear the name spoken and don't know differently.  That is in fact the case with Stephen Conerly.  His name appears in the official records as Conerly, Connerly, and also Connelly, and this last spelling is even the name he was buried under.  The headstone shows "S. Connelly", 7th Miss Inf.  Anyway, I was able to kneel at the gravesite and pray over his grave because of you, and I appreciate that very much.  Our branch of the family spells it "Conerly", and has for many years spelled it that way. Strangers usually attempt to spell the name "Connerly" unless we correct them.
 The "Jackson Conerly" who appears on your roster page for the 7th Miss Inf is Stephen's younger half-brother.  They had the same father, William Connerly, a veteran of the War of 1812.
 I was hoping to ask you to please add Stephen Conerly's (aka Connerly, Connelly) to the roster page under Company D.   According to the records, this is the company in which he served, although he did not join the regiment until some time in 1863 (I do not recall the month without looking it up, but I believe his month of enlistment was September.  I can check the muster roll copies I have if you want to know).  He died of disease (which disease the records don't say) in July 1864 at the Hill Hospital in Covington, Newton County, Ga.  Anyway, that would be appreciated very much.
 Many other Conerlys from Pike and Marion County, Miss. fought for the South, including Stephen's cousins Owen Lewis Conerly, Ensign of the 33rd Miss who was killed in front of the breastworks at Franklin,  Luke Ward Conerly, SGt 16th Miss Inf twice wounded in action and surrendered at Appomattox, and Buxton Conerly, one of the few surviving defenders of Ft. Gregg.  Jackson Conerly of the 7th Miss was wounded at Murfreesboro and subsequently discharged.  All were descended from Revolutionary War soldier Cullen Connerly of North Carolina. 
 Thanks again for your attention to this information.  I look forward to seeing the name Stephen Conerly (aka Connerly, Connelly) on the Co D roster page.
Yours sincerely,
Ted Conerly
