Jasper Newton Hyatt was my great grandfather. The following is part of a story written by the 28th (Thomas') Louisiana Infantry Regiment.

"The four Hyatt brothers who enlisted together with the 28th (Thomas') Infantry Regiment were the children of Samuel Terrell Hyatt Jr. and his wife Elizabeth Etheridge (whose brother Benjamin served in the 24th MIssissippi Infantry Reg). Samuel had a total of ten children, nine of who were boys. The military services of the other sons in not known at this time. Samuel was a school teacher who was born in South Carolina, lived for a time in Washington County, ALA area, and moved from the Ellisville, MS area about 1856 with his wife, his sister Henrietta and her husband. The present day Hyatt High School in Beauregard Parish is named for this man."
