Alphonzo Irvin Rugeley

Son of John and Parthenia Rugeley
was shot while crossing the Mississippi River in a boat
near Vicksburg. He was acting as a courier bringing
gold to Texas. Yankees in a gunboat ordered
Alphonzo to surrender, but he delayed long
enough to throw the gold overboard rather
than allow it to fall into the hands of the
Union forces.


He is not buried in the Rugeley Family Cemetery.
