He served in Company F, 25th Regiment, Texas Cavalry, as a First Sergeant under Captain Enoch S. Pitts. He enlisted in Tyler, TX on May 4, 1862.
During the battle of Arkansas Post in 1863, he lost his right hand. He was taken prisoner of war and was taken to St. Louis, MO and placed in the Hickory Street Government Hospital for treatment (National Archives). Tradition told by his grandchildren was that he lost his left arm.
While he was a prisoner he was forced to sign alligance to the United States. After his death, when his widow sought a Confederate pension, she was denied because of this pledge. She could not qualify for a United States pension because he was a Confederate soldier.
He served as County Clerk from 1882-1895. Then he resigned because of health reasons.
