Obituary of Tom L. Lewellyn, Woodbury, Hill County, Texas.

Tom L. Lewellyn was born December 22, 1826, and died in Woodbury, Hill County, Tex., March 5, 1914. In the spring of 1861 he made up a company, which was afterwards Company A of the 26th Mississippi, near Iuka, Miss., with which he went to Union City, then to Bowling Green, Ky., thence in 1862 to Fort Donelson, where he was captured and taken to Camp Morton. He was a prisoner for nine months, then exchanged and rejoined his old company in the fall of 1862. Going to South Mississippi, he was in the fight of Coffeeville, Grenada, and Greenville in the fall of 1863. He went from there to Black River, then to Grand Gulf, La., then to Baker's Creek, and there he was made wagon master and ordered to Vicksburg with supplies. The night after he arrived in Vicksburg he and five other men got out and went through a nine days' fight at Jackson, Miss. They then went to Macon, Miss., where they rested for three months. In the winter of 1864 he went to Virginia. He surrendered under Gen. Joseph E. Johnston.
