Cpl Thomas Jefferson Chambers
He was in Liberty Co, TX in 1860, and was born 22 Mar 1840 in Virginia. Pension application filed in Liberty Co, TX #27861. According to Bruce Stevensí records on ancestry.com: He enlisted Dec 5, 1861, and had been a newspaper man. He died in 24 May, 1929 in Houston, TX of dementia. Note:
Family oral tradition stated that "T.J." fought in Civl War, walked back, barefoot, from Philadelphia to Virginia. In Virginia he was, at one time, Superintendent of the Methodist Sunday School and that he served as a judge (since disproved) in Chambers County.
Material provided from the State of Texas states he was a newspaperman and, before that, a soldier in the Mexican-American and Civil Wars. In the CW, he was a cavalryman in Company I, 25th Texas Regiment, and was twice captured. The first time he was imprisoned in Illinois but later exchanged at City Point, VA (was he marched back from Philadelphia?). He then rejoined his rebuilt regiment and fought at the strategic Confederate victory of Chickamauga on September 19-20, 1863 under General Deshler, attached to General Bragg's army. Deshler was killed when hit in the chest by an exploding shell while going to inspect personally the Texas troops, who had complained of running low of ammo. This was the third bloodiest battle of the CW. Unfortunately for TJ, he was captured there and spent the rest of the war at Camp Douglas, on the south side of Chicago (currently between 35th & 39th and Cottage Grove & M.L. King Drive), which was a notorious Union prison. One source, sympathetic to the North, said 6,129 of about 20,000 prisoners died of disease and starvation at the Camp. For additional detail on his life, see the bio on him excerpted from the Confederate Military History, Extended Edition, Vol.XV, Texas.
Considerable information uncovered on visit to Sam Houston Library in Liberty, Texas, on 11/8/96, both on TJ and his many relatives. Much was added under other names. Below is his military records:
Enlisted in 25th Texas Cavalry on March 17, 1862

He died 14 Jun 1912 Karnes Co, TX. He was a cattle rancher and a mason of the Royal Arch Degree. Exert from "The Trail Drivers Of Texas" page 712:
"When the trains began to haul their first long strings of clanking
freight cars loaded with cattle, many ranchmen were happy that for their
sons the getting of cattle to market in the future would be so
simplified. Weeks on the trail, driving their slow moving herds,
through days of sun and days of rain, with always nights on the great
outside, were now over. But life has a way of compensating, and from
these men who had been called on to use the best that was in them of
courage and of resourcefulness through those years, there grew a line of
sturdy, hardy men who could not have just happened to be as they were.
They had been developed.
Among these Knights of the Cattle Trail--the old trail drivers--was
William G. Butler, of Karnes County, known all the way up and down the
trail as 'Bill Butler.'
When Texas was young and raw and the bad man seemed ever ready to
get the better of the good man, because there were more of them, Bill
Butler came with his father and mother, Burnell and Sallie Butler, in
1852 to Texas from Scott County, Mississippi, he being eighteen years old
at that time. The trip was made, as were all others in the days before
the railroads had come, overland in wagons; there were three ox-drawn
wagons, the family and seven negro slaves. At the end of the three
months they reched the San Antonio River on December 24, 1852. Home was
there made, they then began the raising of cattle and the taking up of
wild and--then thought to be--almost worthless land."

In Reply to: Archibald Overton Sloan, Civil War by Edward Jordan Lanham
I only know a little about this Archibald, He was a substitute for an older brother in the Confederate Army, and died of sickness and exposure while stationed at Arkansas Post.
This info is from "House of Sloan - Sloan Family Record" by James Allen Sloan, 1959.
As far as I know, he was never married? Do you know of any descendants? He was the son of Thomas Allen Sloan & Nancy Gillis Hester. I have more info on the family, if interested.

Another of the pioneers of this county and Central West Texas has passed away after a long and useful life. Capt. R.E. Woods died at his ranch home 16 miles west of town Saturday night. The body was buried in the family grave yard Sunday afternoon. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. B.D. D. Greer, pastor of the Presbyterian church, in the presence of a large crowd of relatives and friends.
Capt. Woods was among the first settlers of the county. He was a son of a sturdy pioneer and did part, and a man's part, too, in wresting the land from the dangers of the Red Man and the coyote. He was a native of Tuscaloosa, Ala., where he was born in March 1840. His father came to Texas while this son was but a young man. When the civil war came on R.E. Woods was one of the first to respond to the call of the Southern Confederacy and went thru the fall four year of the strife. A brave and gallant soldier, he was true to his state and remained true to the peoples for which he fought. Until this year he had not missed a single meeting of the reunions of the United Confederate Veterans for many years. This year his health would not permit him to leave home and make the trip. He was in many of the tragic Indian fights of this border land back in the fifties. At the age of 45 he was converted and united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church and was soon after made an Elder in the church and filled this office thru his life. He was honest, industrious, ______his home a haven for the weary. He leaves a wife and five living children surviving (total of 7).
