|Franklin Parish Sharpshooters|
|Franklin Sharpshooters I am seeking information on men that served in the Franklin Sharpshooters, a company of men raised in Franklin Parish during the Civil War. They became Company E of the 8th Louisiana Infantry. Among the many men that served in this fine unit were German A. Lester, Newton Z. Guice, Joseph Bryan, Marcus Short, James and Samuel Baggett, Charles Small, several members of the Barfield family, A. J. Ensminger, and members of the following families: Ford, Fishel, Haas, Jolly, Kapps, Moore, Nestor, Oglethorpe, Price, Scott, Suddeth, Thorn, West, Youngblood and many more. I am seeking biographical and genealogical information for a regimental history of this fine Regiment and want as much info on the men as possible. Thank to for his help with this page. "Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Masons" of La. for 1898. The Confederate veterans had a reunion and organization today. Quite a discussion as to what the name of this camp should be. Fitzhugh Lee was suggested, likewise R. E. Lee, R .L. Gibson, Stonewall (Jackson), Joe E. Johnson, General Taylor and Franklin Sharp Shooters but they decided on no one, but finally decided to adopt the last suggested name.||
