James Peter Arrant
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 15, 1825
Georgia, USA
Death: May 3, 1902
Russell County
Alabama, USA

James Peter was born to Peter Arrant, Jr. and Jenny Frances Gaunt. He married Sarah Broughton July 13, 1848 in Russell Co., Alabama.

James enlisted in CO. H, 54th GEORGIA REGT., CSA at Columbus, GA in November 1862. He was discharged April 17, 1865. He worked as a carpenter and a farmer; and was a member of the Masonic Order.

Family researchers indicate he died from injuries sustained in a buggy accident, but proof remains elusive.

My tribute to this CSA veteran:



In homespun gray they marched away,
The bugles sang: "Come, life is gay!"

Brave hearts beat high, cheers soared to sky,
Brave lips stilled sobs: "Good-by, good-by!"

In homespun gray they marched away,
The bugles laughed: "Come, Youth, and play!"

In tattered gray they met the fray,
The frantic bugles shrilled: "This way!"

Through hell's red glare, on, on, and there—
Defeat, at last, but not despair.

Poor shattered gray, Fate ruled that day,
The bugles sobbed: "Come, come, away!"

In hallowed gray they sleep to-day;
The bugles hushed and silent lay.

The south wind sighs, where battle cries,
Long echoed—blue and fair the skies.

In hallowed gray they sleep today,
Sweet rest be theirs, the gallant gray!
