1865 Registration of the Names of Persons Who Have Taken the Amnesty Oath

List No. 2
Transcribed from the Journal of Police Court, DeSoto County 1868
Provided by the Genealogical Society of DeSoto County




The following list of names is taken from the Journal of Police Court. With the exception of two women, all of the others are men who are believed to have served in the Confederate armed forces. Most have been identified through use of the National Park Service's Civil War Solders and Sailors System. A service record for some has not been found. This is not unusual given the operation of local defense units, especially in northwest Mississippi where much Union raiding took place from Memphis. This list is totally separate from the other list of oath takers previously posted.
