The purpose of this blog is to follow the footsteps of Private Parham Morgan Buford who served in 11th Mississippi, Company G during the “War for Southern Independence.” The primary sources are previously unpublished letters Parham sent to his family, military records of the Confederate States of America, and other eye-witness accounts. Secondary and tertiary sources are for enhancing subject matter within the primary sources for modern readers.

    I don’t do Facebook or Twitter, so this works well. If you look closely, you can imagine a family resemblance!/Jay

    My grandmother’s maiden name was Buford. She was from Oxford and still owns several hundred acres of the old Buford place. If you ever want to meet and see it all let me know. I am descended from the Goodloe Warren Buford that served with Parham in the 11th.
