Quinn's 2nd Inf Regt. State Troops
It's true, there is scant information on the State Troops. I've been looking for more unit(s) history for
born Feb 6 1819, in
Monticello, MS Lawrence County - (sons: Major, William, Joseph P., John Leander and James Gibson, my grandfather; daughters: Helen-married John Boone, Emily-married Jackson Bearden) He died Feb 26 1893 and was buried near Rockport, MS (Providence Meth.)
I'm not sure if Alfred was still a resident of Lawrence Co. during the outbreak of the war. I think he had relations who lived
in Pike, Amite and Walthall counties. He must have been in additional units, because he enlisted July 26, 1862 and was discharged May 4, 1865.
He (Alfred Sartin) is listed in the MS Graves Registry as being with Quinn's 2nd Inf Regt. St Trps, so I'm trying to figure out to
which areas Quinn's troops traveled, and to what other units Alfred would have been assigned, if Quinn's was only a 6 month or year long enlistment... Ah, what a tangled web is this!
