Colorado Citizen, June 15, 1861, July 13, 1861, August 3, 1861, August 10, 1861, August 31, 1861, September 21, 1861, October 12, 1861, November 13, 1908, November 20, 1908; Eagle Lake Headlight, May 26, 1923; Muster Rolls, Company B, Fifth Texas Infantry, Microfilm edition in Archives of the Nesbitt Memorial Library, Columbus; Members of the Texas Legislature, 1846-1962 (n. p., 1962), p. 23; Colorado County Police [Commissioners] Court Minutes, Book 2, p. 401; Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers who Served in Organizations from the State of Texas, National Archives Microfilm Publication No. 323, Roll 421. Andrew C. Burford was the son of Harriet Burford, William A. Bridge the son of William Bridge, who owned eleven slaves in 1860, David M. Currie the son of Julia A. Currie, who owned twelve slaves in 1860; William H. Carlton the son of James Carlton; Blythe W. Haynes the son of Calvin Haynes; John M. Jenkins the son of James H. Jenkins, who owned nine slaves in 1860; William W. Pinchback the son of John Pinchback; Calvin B. Tanner the son of John O. Tanner, and Thaddeus Wright the son of William J. Wright (see Eighth Census of the United States (1860), Schedule 1, Schedule 2, Colorado County, Texas). The company also included privates named Henry Haynes and John M. Grace. Haynes may have been Blythe Haynes' brother, though no evidence to support that conclusion has been found. Henry Haynes would be wounded and captured at Gettysburg, and die of his wound in a federal prison camp. Grace appears to have been the brother of slaveholder Thomas J. Grace. He would be discharged because of lung disease on January 9, 1862.
