NOTES: He was a Justice of the Peace of Williamson County, Illinois in 1861. In 1864 he was appointed by President Abraham Lincoln to be the Postmaster of Bolton in Williamson County. In 1865 the post office was abolished. Bolton is now called Stonefort. A lot of times his last name is spelled CRASS in the old records.

NOTES: From a query on the Saline County, Illinois Board I found the following info about Elijah CROSS, submitted by Cheryl: "I have a small article on Sarahville, it states that it was the settlement of the two DAVIS brothers, John T. (1805-1855) and Thomas D. (1814-1873) sons of the family who settled on Davis Prairie. The DAVIS' opened a store there where the old road from Golconda crossed the Saline River. This article goes on to tell how John T. named the town. Have you seen this article? It also goes on to say: "At Sarahville, the clerk Elijah CROSS was appointed postmaster 10 Sep 1855 when John DAVIS died. Mr. CROSS came from Tennessee to Sarahville, and was counted a man of superior education. Years later he was Justice of the Peace in Saline County."

Floyd talking about his brother Captain Monroe Floyd. I found a marriage for Matthew in 1865. Did he die shortly after his marriage if so why would his mother get his pension and not his wife?? (JAN 1999)

Found in DeKalb County, Tennessee cemetary book a Monroe M. Floyd born 18 Sep 1843 and died 4 Nov 1865 age 22 years buried at New Hope Baptist Church Cemetary in the old section located in DeKalb county, Tennessee east of Alexandria on Walkers Creek Rd. There is a D. L. Floyd buried beside him. Is he my Matthew Monore??? (10 OCT 1999) YES HE IS!!!!

HISTORY: STOKES'S CAVALRY, The Fifth (Union Army) Regiment of Tennessee Cavalry, sometimes called the First Middle Tennessee Cavalry, was organized at Nashville, Murfreesboro, and Carthage, from July 15, 1862, to March 26, 1864, to serve three years, and was mustered out of service August 14, 1865. The regiment consisted of twelve companies and was recruited by Colonel William B. Stokes, acting under authority from Military Governor Andrew Johnson. The regiment was in various battles and skirmishes during the latter part of 1862 and was in the battle of Murfreesboro, or Stone's River. From that battle till the close of the war the regiment was employed mainly in detachments in the eastern part of Middle Tennessee. One battalion was stationed at Shelbyville for some time and was in several skirmishes there. The other portion of the regiment was stationed at Carthage and was kept busy also, as, among other duties, it was required to carry the mail from that point to Gallatin. A portion of Stokes's command, under Captain Cain and Lieutenant Carter, was in the battle of Lookout Mountain. A part was also at Chickamauga and Chattanooga under Lieuts. Wingate T. Robinson and Nelson. Subsequently the regiment was ordered to Sparta, Tennessee, to break up the guerrilla bands under Ferguson, Hughes, and Bledsoe, a contest in which no quarter was given. After this it was ordered to Nashville, where, under Lieut. Colonel W. J. Clift, it participated in the battle in front of that city. Upon the removal of the command to Nashville, Colonel Stokes was assigned to command the forces at Carthage. Three of Stokes's regiments-Company A, J. H. Blackburn, captain; Company B, Shelah Waters, captain; and Company K, E. W. Bass, captain-were made up of DeKalb County men. There were some resignations from this regiment in 1864, and a new regiment was formed by J. H. Blackburn. Colonel Stokes resigned March 10, 1865, but was breveted brigadier general by President Andrew Johnson. Other resignations from Stokes's original regiment were: Major Shelah Waters, January 24, 1865; Captain John T. Armstrong, April 7, 1865; Captain J. H. Blackburn, June 5, 1864; Captain James T. Exum, March 10, 1865; and Captain Monroe Floyd (who married Captain Blackburn's sister), May 11, 1865;
