    My Dear Son: Your letter for information as to my service in confederate army rec'd I herewith enclose you the 2 slips made out. You will see that I did not give the No. of Regiment, said Regiment was made up of men from Franklin, Pike, Amite and Wilkinson Counties. As to any papers relating to further information, I have none. I will try and give you some information relating to our family history. To answer, you knew your Grand Pa Byrd, and G.P. Prichard. Your G.P. Byrd married a Herrington, your G.P. Prichard married a Stringer. Don't know the name of your Great-Grand Pa Byrd nor the name of your G. G. Ma Byrd. B---Herrington was your G.G. P. name. On your father's side your Great Grand Parents were Stringer and of course Prichard. Aunt Elisabeth Griffing (nee Stringer) lives at Hamburg, she is now in the eighties as to age. She might give you more definite information as to the Stringer genealogy. We had a very nice quiet Xmas. Plenty good eats. Mr. Hewlett left this morning on his enlistment work. I wish I could hear from Paul.

    All send love.
    Your Papa C. A. Prichard

  • Notes 
    • L. H. Prichard graduated from Mississippi College and became a lawyer. He practiced in Meadville briefly before moving to Oklahoma City, OK, where he became a pioneer oil man. Joining him in Oklahoma were brothers Paul and Charles. Eventually he and partner J. Steve Anderson formed Anderson-Prichard Oil Corp. (APCO), a major independent. The company went public before L. H.'s death from throat cancer in 1948, and his widow sold her shares in the company in 1960. She died in 1966. L. H. was honored in 2001 by the University of Oklahoma with a plaque at the new Plaza of the Oil Pioneers of Oklahoma.
