Forgiven! The Confederates' Veterans Home was in the City of Austin, Travis County. There is no connection between the city and county with the shared name. There is a findagrave memorial for J. S. Montgomery (1830-1905) in Travis County. It indicates he served in 2nd Texas Cavalry? Civil War Record indicates your man served in 3rd Mississippi Cavalry. Unsure if this is your guy? Why would a Mississippi resident travel to Texas for military service?
