George M. Autry was born near Salem, Tippah County, Miss., and died at Rockport, Tex., in February, 1907. He was left an orphan at an early age. He enlisted for the Confederacy in March, 1862, at Salem, Miss., joining a company of which Ben Lax was captain, and which afterwards became a part of the 34th Mississippi Infantry in Anderson's Brigade under Beauregard. From Corinth it was with General Bragg on his Kentucky Campaign. After returning to Tennessee, the regiment was placed in Walthall's Brigade. Comrade Autrey was continuously with his command until captured in the "battle above the clouds," Lookout Mountain, in November, 1863. He was in prison at Rock Island until March 13, 1865, when he was exchanged. He received a furlough a few days later, but before he reached home General Lee had surrendered.

Comrade Autrey was married at Chewalla, Tenn., in December 1857, to Miss Angelina E. Wilson, who, with eight children, survives him. He removed with his family to Texas in 1869, settling near Houston. Removing afterwards to Guadalope County, he served for many years as Sherriff, and in 1895 he made his home at Kenedy, Karnes County, residing there until death.
