M. Peebles
Thank you for your help in identifying "John W. Peebles" who wrote the "Peebles document" that is
referenced several times in the regimental records of both Bourland's Regt and Wells' Battalion.
Most of the men in this Doomas' Company, that I know of, were quite young and were evidently boon buddies.
Jackson, Alex, Doomas’ Co
Merrill, Ramsey L, Doomas’ Co.
Merrill, Wiley Brandon, Jr., Doomas’ Co.
Peebles, John W, Doomas’ Co.
Renner, Geo, Doomas’ Co.
Wilhoit, Henry, Doomas’ Co.
Wilhoit, Isaac, Doomas’ Co.
......Merrills of Ladonia, Fannin Co TX m-Col James Bourland's family, Sam Day's dau.
......Wilhites of Ladonia, Fannin Co TX m-Col James Bourland's g-gdau; Sam Day's gdau
..............Boothes also m. into Col. James Bourland's family
.......Renner, Geo lives next door to Wilhites in Ladonia.
.......Jackson, Alex, b-1845 AL found in Hunt Co TX cen with Ladonia P.O.
.......Peebles, J.W. was the step-son of Eliz Merrill, the 2nd wife of Charles Holiday Peebles
..............who was listed in a Fannin Co TX militia.
John W. Dumas, b-1847, served in Co K of Baylor's 2d Regt, Arizona Brigade. ... Richard Dumas stated: "My mother's grandfather, Samuel L. Tyler, enlisted in Baylor's Regt. Co. E in Oct 1862 in Leon, Co. Texas (Centerville) Arizona Brigade.
This tough Arizona Brigade service probably gave young "John W. Dumas" the 'mettle' and
.......confidence to organize the patrolling Doomas Company that was attached to Bourland's Regt.
