Private John C. Mangham was 56 years old when he enlisted in the 10th Mississippi Regt. in 1861!
His sons, Frank & Thomas, joined the artillery in the following year. Frank was captured when Vicksburg surrendered on July 4, 1863.
If you can help me find & photograph his brother's or father's graves, I'd love to post it on the website.
