Surgeon’s Discharge of Pvt. William A. Derryberry Co. “H”

 Maury Greys/Grays, at Hunterville, VA, Dec. 1861

William Alexander Derryberry of the Lasea community of Maury County, was discharged for illness from Co. “H” of the 1st Tennessee Infantry, was wounded while serving with the 9th Tennessee Cavalry, and wounded again while with Co. “E” of the 48th Tenne ssee Infantry. While with Co. “H,” on that long, cold Virginia campaign in the winter of 1861, William took measles, as many Southern farm boys did during that conflict, not having been exposed to such before. (Many of his comrades died). According to not es in his CSA Pension Application, the measles “settled in his lungs,” and he was dangerously ill for three or four months before recovering enough to return to service.

Following is a list of Confederate soldiers buried within a special plot designated for Confederate burials in Rose Hill Cemetery.

Duck River Riflemen – Co. G, 24th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry

This roster of officers and men of Co. G, 24th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry, “Duck River Rifles,” was taken largely from an original report, on pieces of Confederate paper written with Confederate ink, which was faded by 1904. The roster was made at the c lose of the war and so does not include all the names of the soldiers who served in Co. G. I have added other names when discovered. The roster was, in 1904, in the hands of Capt. R. W. Tindall of the Leftwich Community and was made accessible to Judge Fr ank H. Smith, who published it in The Daily Herald.

Capt. J. M. Billington’s company was made up from men from the eastern part of Maury County and the western part of Marshall County. The company was organized at the old Napier Hole on Flat Creek, just north of Bear Creek Pike. After drilling at Napier Ho le, they traveled to Columbia, by rail to Nashville and then to Murfreesboro, where they went into quarters at Camp Anderson, three miles from town. The Duck River Riflemen became Co., G, 24 TN Volunteer Infantry when the 24th was officially organized on 24 August 1861. At Shiloh, Co. G lost nine men killed by the first fire from the Federal soldiers before they could return fire. Despite nine slain and 16 wounded in this devastating start, the company, under Gen. Cleburne, Capt. Billington and Col. Peeb les, moved forward and took the Federal encampment. 

Officers Capt. James M. BILLINGTON ( 5 Sep 1827 – 30 Aug 1885), resigned April 1862 (Capt. Billington commanded the company at Shiloh with great credit to himself and his men. He resigned at Tupelo when his health began to fail. A reunion of the company was planne d for his birthday on 5 Sept 1885 at his family home near Rally Hill; the men gathered that day for the reunion, but Billington died and his funeral was held instead. He was buried in Billington Cemetery.)

1st Lt. J. Lon SECREST, killed at Perryville on 8 Oct 1862

2nd Lt. William M. SHIRES (1841 – 1916), resigned April 1862, living near Old Lasea in 1904. He is buried in Shires Memorial Cemetery.
