John Glen Neal, Company D, 43rd Mississippi Infantry

My GG grandfather, Pvt. John Glen Neal (went by Glen) was killed Dec. 1, 1864 in Franklin….like so many others. He was in the Mississippi Vols in the 43rd regiment, company D, and he enlisted on 4/25/1862.

He was a farmer and left 7? children at home. My mother said when he was killed, his wife, Leanna Hill Moore Neal worked their children to death to keep the family farm..which they did. She never did marry again. Glen came from Bellefontaine, Webster County, Ms. and he was a private.

    I’ve been researching my gggrandfathers participation as a member of the 43rd Miss. Volunteers his name is lieutenant James M. Jennings. I only have a few letters he wrote and archival documents from the library of congress. I would like to know what military engagement the 43rd were involved in.

    For info on Neal’s in Civil War specifically related to John Glen Neal, contact me at jneal@click1.net. John had a son, my ggrandfather, who enlisted at age 12, and four brothers who served in Texas regiments. History is interesting. During our research, we discovered my wife’s gggrandfather and my gggrandfather, John Glen Neal, were in opposing units directly across from each other at the Battle of Franklin.
