Francis Asbury Eubanks


Click to enlarge

His name was Francis Asbury Eubanks. All I know is that he died when my Great Grandfather, Bicknell Thomas Eubanks b. March 14 1876 Aberdeen MS(?) was very young. I'm assuming he was born around 1841-44 because I've been told Francis was about 35 when he died and his wife ran a boarding house in Aberdeen after his death. I also know that he fought in the Civil War and
this is the info I have collected on that:

First Mississippi Cavalry Battalion
The following information is taken directly from Units of the Confederate States Army by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. Published
by Derwent Books; Midlothian, Virginia. (c)1987.


1st Cavalry Battalion was formed during the summer of 1861 and served in the Western Department and the Army of the Mississippi. It took an active part in the fight at Belmont, then on April 2, 1862 merged into Lindsay's Mississippi Cavalry Regiment. Lieutenant Colonel John H. Miller and Major D. C. Herndon were in command.

Look at 1st Bn,Miss. Sharp Shooters (Lindsey'/Pinion's) and Miller's in the above link.

The reason I am e-mailing you is a lot of the men in his Battalion were supposed to be from Carroll County. I've also collected some info on the census files that point a Francis Eubank/ Eubanks as well as a Frank Eubank/Eubanks in Carroll County. But some how none of the dates seem to match up. Here is the stuff I found in Census info:

I really don't know where else to go from here. I think I've given you most of the pertinent information. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you can help me in any way. Thanks!
