Highlighting Early Pioneer of Tate County, Mississippi
Captain L. Guy Woollard of the Invincibles :
Captain L. Guy Woollard was deservedly popular with his company. Winning the love and admiration of his men, they yielded a cheerful obedience to his commands, under any and all circumstances, without the exercise on his part of strict military discipline. In the battle of Gettysburg, while gallantly leading his company, he and about thirty of his men were captured and were imprisoned on Johnson's Island, Lake Erie, and at Ft. Delaware twenty-one months, until March 21, 1865, not reaching home until about the 1st of July following. From close confinement and the rough treatment of prison life soon after he as imprisoned, Captain Woollard lost his health, which he never afterward regained.
Instead of resuming his law practice he sought the office of probate clerk of De Soto County, Mississippi, in October, 1865, and for the proper discharge of its duties he possessed eminent qualifications. In 1867 he married Miss Mary Elizabeth Boyce, near Senatobia, Mississippi. In 1872, with the hope of recovering his health, he moved with his family to Luka Springs, Mississippi which prolonged his life of suffering a short while. Returning to Senatobia, he died September 15, 1874, at 39 years of age, in full triumph of Christian faith. His widow, Mrs. M. E. Woollard, resides in Senatobia, Mississippi, and her son George is in business in Memphis. D. Boyce Woollard married Miss Annie Staton of Senatobia, Mississippi, and is manager of the C. B. Clark place, at Clarkton, Crittenden County, Arkansas. L. Guy, Jr., resides in Larrantine, Texas. Douglas D., the younger of the four sons, has had for several years a position in the I.C.R.R.
