Possible Confederate Veterans Buried

 In Union Church Cemetery, Jefferson Co., MS


These men, in one way or another fit the profile of a Confederate Veteran. I used the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System @ to locate the rank and unit(s) . This system is known to contain flaws and errors. The men who were already identified as veterans are in bold type. . I am sure that I may have missed someone, or may have listed some who may not have served, for the listed reasons I do not make any claim to accuracy. Corrections and updates welcome.
