Notes for J
ASPER NEWTON DOAN:
Private in the Confederate Army, Texas Infantry, 2nd Regiment, Company I, of Gonzales County, Texas from July 29, 1862 to April 5, 1864. Stationed in Enterprise, Mississippi. [Source: Research done by Carrie Anne Lewis. Also Film Number M227 roll 10 with the National Park Service; listed as Doan, Doane, and Done.]

The Second Texas Infantry [also called 2nd Texas Sharpshooters] was organized by J.C. Moore during the summer of 1861. Many of the men were from Houston and Galveston. After serving in the Department of Texas, it moved east of the Mississippi River and fought at Shiloh, Corinth, and Hatchie Bridge. Later it was assigned to Moore's Brigade, Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. Under this command it was active at Snyder's Bluff and surrendered with the forces at Vicksburg on July 4, 1863. Its casualties during the campaign were 38 killed, 73 wounded, 15 missing, and 11 died of sickness of the 468 engaged. After being exchanged, only 29 were present as the majority of the men had returned to Texas. Later it was reorganized and in April, 1864, stationed at Galveston Island, there were 18 officers and 190 men fit for duty. That summer it suffered from a yellow fever epidemic but went on to participate in the defense of Galveston. In April, 1865, it contained 395 effectives but disbanded before the surrender on June 2. The field officers were Colonels Noble L. McGinnis, John C. Moore, William P. Rogers, and Ashbel Smith; Lieutenant Colonels William C. Timmins and J.F. Ward; and Majors Xavier B. Debray, George W.L.

Notes for A
LEXANDER MARTIN DOAN:
It's my guess that this individual belongs here. Before I came across Alexander M, the only name I had here for a son of James and Elizabeth was Martin. All of the information here was collected from A M's confederate pension application and Maggie's window pension application.

A M was said to be about 6 ft tall with light colored hair and blue eyes. On Feb 27, 1861 he volunteered in the Company G 9th Mississippi infantry in Independence, DeSoto (Tate) County and served 12 months. In 1878 he is said to have moved to Arkansas. However, according to his wife Maggie's Widow's Application for a Pension, the two had lived in Texas since 1872. She also claimed there that they had lived in Palo Pinto County since 1877.
