Carol, do you know if this is his whole name? And who his parents are? I am trying to put this section of the family together (Criner, Womack, etc.) for a research trip. I did not want to leave anyone out. Thanks. WYNDY SOUTH

RE: John or John Anders?
I did take off the bio part, someone provided this information to me, just don't remember who...I can see where it could get confusing...perhaps the info I had is for your John South - Do you know anything about John Anders South? I don't know why his marker doesn't give DOB or DOD...

RE: John or John Anders?
Hi Carol, the only thing I know about John Anders South is from historical accounts from my Great Great Grandfather John Thomas Holliman.

Here is what I have from my family document that talks about John Anders South:

On Feb. 15th, 1865, John Thomas was near death from starvation and exposure in a frozen wasteland. He did not have shoes, a coat or blanket. He and two of his Company buddies, Sgt. Miles Bobo and Pvt. John A. South, pooled their money ($17 Confederate) and bought a pone of cornbread being peddled by a black woman in the trenches. They ate it, put a white flag on a ramrod and walked over into the Union lines. The Federal Archives state that John Thomas was sent to Washington, D.C., given the oath, and then sent to Holly Springs, MS, to await discharge. This is correct for Bobo and South but John Thomas' fate was different. This writer is in possession of a post-war note written by John Thomas that reads:
"In Co. H - 41 Ala at Petersburg Va.
Feb 15 1865 about dark - went
over to Union. John South, Miles
Bobo. Carried Gard House that
night - Asked by officers to disclose conditions and were carried from post to post disclosing conditions in
Conf. (Gracies Army) Was in U S
Army about 1 week. Was then sent
to Washington and took Oath - was
sent to Baltimore Md - then through
Pa to Indianapolis Ind & stayed in
Inda about 6 mo - war closed"

I was told that John Anders South was from Fayette County and located his grave at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery - everything seems to match up as this being the man that was with my GG grandfather.

I saw where you had taken a photo of the arch at south cemetery. I was hoping that you would send me directions to this cemetery as I have no clue where to find it.
Thank you, Kimberly
