Birth: 1829
Death: 1848

More than 130 years after their death on Greenwood Island near Pascagoula, Miss., and 10 years after they were disinterred, two unknown Mexican War soldiers of Twiggs Brigade were laid to rest with full military honors on Veterans Day November 11, 1989.
They were found in side-by-side coffins, exposed by erosion, on a 1840s military reservation known as Camp Jefferson Davis. The camp was named for the Mississippi Mexican War hero who later lead the Confederacy. They are located in Section H, graves 4 and 5
