Cornwell Haynes

Obituary of Judge H. Cornwell, Louisville, Mississppi.

Judge H. Cornwell, distinguished citizen and Christian, passed to his reward on March 12, 1914, aged seventy-three years. He was born in Chester, S. C., but removed to Louisville, Miss., a few years prior to the War between the States, and his ardent patriotism prompted him to leave school and enlist as a private with the first company organized at Louisville, which was mustered into the service of the Confederate States at Corinth, Miss., May 18, 1861, as Company A, 13th Mississipi Volunteer Regiment. In the reorganization of his company on the Peninsula at Yorktown he was promoted to sergeant of his company. He participated in nearly all of the engagements of the Virginia Army from First Manassas to the battle of Strasburg, where he was captured October 9, 1865, and discharged at the surrender of General Lee's army. As a soldier he was brave and fearless and never shirked a duty. After the war closed he returned to Mississippiandspent the remainder of his life on his plantation. His life as a citizen was as exemplary as that as a soldier. He was prominent in both Church and State affairs. He was also a Mason, his membership dating from 1866, during which time he was advanced to the degree of Select Master's Council.

In March, 1866, Judge Cornwell was married to Miss Mary E. Haynes, and to this happy union were born eight children, seven sons and one daughter, all of whom survive him with their mother.
