Jabez Marshall Greer
Civil War Record
Submitted by: Mary Barnes

The Confederate record of my great-grandfather, Jabez Marshall Greer. He enlisted 22 August 1861 at Iuke, MS, age 29 years . He was Corporal, Co. H. 22 Regiment, Mississippi Infantry. The Company muster roll for July and August 1864 show him absent. He was "wounded near New Hope Church May 31, 1864 and furloughed for 60 days from June 22, 1864," a private. His name appears on a roll of prisoners of war who reported at Memphis and received parole for 5 days ending 20 May 1865. (Roll not dated.) Date of parole not stated. C. H. Bridges, Major General, the Adjutant General. This report from the War Department, Washington, D.C. Nov. 8 1932.

Jabez Marshall Greer is buried in Bethlehem Methodist Cemetery and his stone has a Confederate emblem on it. His brother, Aquilla Greer, who served in the 34th Regiment, Co. D is also buried there. I found his name on the muster rolls listed in Tippah Co. His descendants still live in Marshall Co. Also they were first cousins to Gen. Elkanah Greer.
