Solomon Skelton, Company G, 5th Mississippi Infantry

My great-great grandfather was Sergeant Solomon Skelton, Co G (Barry Guards), 5th Mississippi Infantry. He was wounded and captured at Franklin.

Ed. The 5th was part of Lowrey’s Brigade, Cleburne’s Division.  The 5th Miss lost 19 men killed at Franklin.

His brother, 1 SGT Absalom Skelton, also of Co. G, was also captured.
