Thanks for the information. I am so excited about a package I got today from a distant cousin I had written to. It contained a copy of a photo (after the war) of my uncle Col. Squire Boone and his brother, Crockett Boone.
Also, there was additional information about Crockett Boone, who also served with Col. Boone in the 15th Arkansas Infantry.
He was referred to as Col. Crockett Boone, and the information sent to me said after the war, Crockett Boone was made a colonel in the U.C.V. by General Ross. What was the UCV and who was Gen. Ross? I assume this was a confederate veterans organization, and I might find additional information about him from that society.
In addition, it is claimed that in May of 1865 Crockett Boone along with a number of other Confederate veterans, went into Mexico and offered their services to Emperor Maximillan, who declined. I'd love to verify that trip into Mexico--obviously he did not live up to the conditions of his parole following Vicksburg.
Finally, this relative said that after the Civil War, Crockett Boone donated his cap and ball six-shooter and canteen that he used during the were to a place called "Blackshears." Have you ever heard of such a repository of Civil War memorabilia?
Finally, are there cemetery records for Santa Anna, Texas that might list which cemetery Crockett Boone is buried in, and if he has a tombstone?
