Company G “Goode’s Rifles” enlisted at Lawrence Co. April 24, - Aug. 3, 1861. Many man were from the area which became Jefferson Davis Co. Due to scarcity of men, the company was finally consolidated with company I.
An acquaintance, Doug Speights, was recently talking to me at a Sons of the Confederate Veterans meeting and mentioned that a brother of his ancestor has a Confederate marker and mentioned that there were other Confederate markers in the family cemetery in Jefferson Davis Co. The uncle was Archibald “Archie” Speights which we determined was the A. W. Speights of Co. G. Douglas Speights has lived in Texas for some time but still has fond memories of Jefferson Davis County.
In Confederate pension rolls, many old men did not state they were in the Seventh Mississippi, but said they were “in the regiment of Colonel Goode”. The Colonel Goode they were serving under was Elias J. Goode, the first captain of Company G.
