Re: 3rd Mississippi Cavalry
Any other information that I find out, I would be more than happy to share with everyone. I can tell you that Capt. Richmond had a daughter, who would have been my great grandmother. She got married to a Charles D. Bolin. Mr. Bolin and Doctor W.K. Kellogg hold the original patent on Kellogg's corn flakes, as Mr. Bolin raised the capital needed the start the company for W.K. Kellogg. There is even a biography on Dr. W.K. Kellogg, and in the book, there is a chapter that speaks about my Mr. Bolin, and how he was able to go to St. Louis, MO. and raise the capital needed for Dr. Kellogg to start his company Kellogg's Corn Flakes. Then after a few years, he sold out to Dr. Kellogg, as he did not trust him. I have a newspaper article dated back from the 1930's, and it stated that had Mr. Bolin held on to his investment with Dr. Kellogg, he would have been worth 6.5 million dollars, and that was in the 1930's. What a bummer that was, as their might have been a possibility that I would have a few dollars in my wallet, instead of just dust. My un-lucky streak still holds firm.
