   Andrew Jackson Hollingsworth joined the CSA on March 2 1861. The only record I have been able to obtain was his Grave Card. It listed him as being a member of Company K, 10th Mississippi Infantry (also known as the Yazoo Minute Rifles). There is no record of him receiving a War Pension. He ended his service on April 26,1865

     Elder was also a member of Company K,10th Mississippi Infantry. Apparently he and Andrew joined on the same day. He ended his service on May 2, 1865. He also is buried in Macedonia Primitive Baptist Cemetery in Newton County, MS.

    Isaac Alonzo Hollingsworth served in Company D, 36th Mississippi Regiment, CSA, under Col. Witherspoon and Capt. Joshua Tatum. He was wounded in the leg at the Battle of Atlanta. In describing the Defense of Vicksburg, Isaac told that men grew so hungry toward the end of the siege that they killed their horses for food. Isaac recalled that on the way home after the Fall of Vicksburg that he and others were so hungry that they stopped in a corn field and ate the corn uncooked from the field.

James Henry Hollingsworth
(Brother)
    Muster records indicate that Henry was a member of Company K, 11th (Perrin's) Mississippi Cavalry, CSA. He was captured and later released at Citronelle, Alabama. The war effort was particularly hard on Henry. Many soldiers had to provide their own clothing or depend on the volunteer effort. The records indicate that Henry's clothing grew so tattered that he had to order a new uniform--to be charged against his wages.
