Pvt. Francis M. Carter;
33rd. Mississippi Infantry
Francis M. Carter was born about 1839 in Louisiana the son of William P. Carter & Harriet Carter. On January 29, 1858 Francis M. Carter married Martha A. Newman, the daughter of Jonathan Newman and Elizabeth Jane Dixon. On October 4, 1858 (Election Day) a Josephus Jones was stabbed in front of Wall's store in Gillsburg, Mississippi. Francis M. Carter was accused of this stabbing and the subsequent death of the victim on the following day. The Liberty Advocate published a report on the 14th of October, 1858 about this event. It was said that Mary Spurlock Jones spent $3,000 dollars trying to have him hanged. He was instead given a jail sentence, though it would appear to be a short one, from looking at the birth date of his second child William Monroe Carter on September 7, 1860.
Francis M. Carter served in the 33rd, Company B with his elder brother Calvin Carter and his brother-in-law John Tisdale Newman. At the time of his enlistment he was the father of three small children. He would survive the war, and several more children were born after his service though not all lived until adulthood. Francis M. Carter lived a long life, dying on October 8, 1916 and was buried in Newman-Phillips cemetery with a Confederate marker on his grave.
