Men of the 1st and 23rd Miss. Infantry
Buried in Riverside Cemetery
Hopkinsville, Kentucky


     This list was donated by the Jefferson Davis Birthplace Camp #1675, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Hopkinsville, Kentucky by Larry L. Walston.  Below is the message he sent along with the data:

     I am a member of the Jefferson Davis Birthplace Camp #1675, Sons of Confederate Veterans in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.  About four years ago we began research on the 293 Confederate soldiers that are buried in our local Riverside Cemetery.  We have identified 15 men which we believe were from the 1st Miss. Infantry and about 68 men which we believe were from the 3rd (to us) or (offically the) 23rd Miss. Infantry.  We have ordered, received and are in the process of erecting tombstones for each of these men.  We have consulted Riverside Cemetery Records, microfilm of their Compiled Service Records from the National Archives and regimental rosters from the Miss. State Archives.

     We hope this will help you identify where some of these men from the 1st & 23rd Miss. Regiments are buried.  As far as we know, they all died of disease - measles, typhoid fever, tuberculosis, etc. in the winter of 1861-1862 before they left for Fort Donelson in Tennessee.
