    Seeking records of men involved in Jones County Rebellion

    William Fisher Newbie

      I am looking for any type of information on men who may have been involved in or participated in the rebellion in Jones County, Mississippi during the Civil War. I have two 3rd Great Grandfathers Augustus Gandy and David WC Haigler who both served in Mississippi Infantry units. Augustus served in the 7th and David served in the 37th. Both men lived in the Ellisville, Jones County area. Augustus Gandy was taken prisoner after the fall of Vicksburg and repatriated and David was taken prisoner at or near Corinth, Mississippi and eventually returned to service. Both were men of humble means, as far as I can tell, neither owned slaves, and may have had reason to be disillusioned with the war.  My real curiosity is whether either man rebelled.   Thank you to all the posters who have answered questions and helped me get to this point.
