Muster Roll. Company A. Fifth Mississippi Cavalry



Genealogy note:

Army records show that most of these men enlisted Sept. 11, 1863 at Grenada, Mississippi which is the date that Captain Peery's "Mississippi Ranger" Company was mustered into Confederate service. William B. Peery lived in that part of Choctaw county that is now Montgomery county. Following the practice of the day his company was probably made up entirely of his friends and neighbors from Choctaw county.

From a very brief study of Choctaw/Montgomery county records I have found the following:
