    Letter from Charles Abel Prichard Sr. to Lev Herrington Prichard Sr.
    Transcription by Ella Wall Prichard:

    Dec. 31 1921

    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 
    • Mississippi Confederate Soldiers Grave Registrations: PRITCHARD, C. A., 14th Confederate Cav., b. in Franklin Co., MS, in 1847, died in 1931, and buried in Franklin County, MS.
    • MS Confederate Soldier Pension Applications: C.A. Prichard filed an application in 1916 in Franklin County, MS. Unit listed as "Power's Cavalry."
    • C. A. Prichard, member of Company E, J. T. Sessions Capt. & Franklin Powers Col. 14th Confederate Cavalry served until Surrender in 1865
    • "Colonel Powers began trying to organize a regiment in December, 1863. About March, 1864, six companies of the 18th Louisiana Cavalry Battalion, one independent Louisiana company, and three Mississippi companies were placed under Powers' command. The new regiment is attributed to both Louisiana and the regular Confederate army. Some sources erroneously call the unit the 4th Louisiana Cavalry Regiment. On April 7, [1864], the regiment defeated an enemy force near Port Hudson and captured an artillery piece. The men performed picket and outpost duty between Clinton, Louisiana, and Woodville, Mississippi, during the remainder of the spring. In June, the regiment moved to Jackson, Mississippi, as part of Colonel John Scott's cavalry brigade. The men skirmished with an enemy force moving against the city from Vicksburg, July 5-7, and pursued the enemy on their retreat back to Vicksburg. In late July or early August, the regiment returned to the Clinton area. For the next several months, the men performed picket and outpost duty again. On October 5, they helped drive an enemy force from near Jackson, Louisiana, to St. Francisville. The next day, the regiment moved toward Woodville to oppose another enemy raid. Later in the month, the six Louisiana companies in the regiment were transferred to Gober's Regiment Mounted Infantry. The Mississippi companies went into another command. Powers eventually commanded a Mississippi cavalry regiment that Union sources confused with this mixed unit."
