I am trying to find any information on one of my husbands ancestors. His name is Joel Leach, and the only information I have from him is he was born in TN between 1817-1820. The last census in 1860 puts him in Attala, MS with his wife, Frances Chinault, and he served in the 3rd Battalion Mississippi Calvary Reserves in the Civil War. He enlisted at Kosciusko, MS with the 3rd Battalion Mississippi Calvary Reserves, Co B. He was listed as POW, surrendered at Citronelle, AL on May 4, 1865, and was paroled at Columbus, MS May 16, 1865. He listed Winston Co, MS as his home on this record.

I have all of the Census records and his enlistment card. He disappears after this.

I have searched everywhere and this is all I can find on this man. No parents, no siblings, no town of birth, and nothing of his death. I do know that in 1870, his wife was listed as a widow, and in the 1880s she was in Arkansas, where she was buried. Any information could be so so helpful. Thank you!

You've probably already checked for a Widow's pension in Arkansas. I wanted to throw it out just in case. If she filed for a pension it may have his death date and place.

By the way Arkansas CSA Pensions are brows-able at familysearch.org for FREE.

Happy Hunting!
