Query posted June 14, 2006
J.P. Trotter was my great-great grandfather and his son,
Alpha Peebles Trotter my great grandfather (his son Col.
Alden Percy Trotter, U.S.A. Ret. was my grandfather). I
am interested in any information concerning the war
history of Company B (Trotter's Company). I note there
is none contained in your website but was wondering if
you had any information which had not yet been posted.
I am particularly interested in whether or not Trotter's
Company participated in the Battle for Fort Pillow. I
have read the general history of the 5th Mississippi
Cavalry which makes general reference to Trotter's
Company but does not contain any specifics. My wife and
I are doing some Trotter geneology and plan to be in
Mississippi in July. Any information you can provide
would be appreciated
Very truly yours,
Judge Philip Champlin
California Superior Court (Ret.)
volunteer County Coordinator for Carroll County, Mississippi. I have
family lines from here and hence my interest in establishing as much
information as possible on early Carroll County History.
