Surnames: Moss, Dowden, Briggs, O'Farrell
The Dowdens you mention who were killed in the Civil War are my Great, Great Uncles...... Thier younger brother, Edward Worth Dowden, was my Great Great Grandfather... He also served in the Crescent Regiment, if I remember right he joined up in 63 or 64, at the age of 16, and served until the end of the war, and was paroled with his regiment... I have his parole papers from the National Archives. I would be more than happy to correspond with anyone about them, and make copies of the records I have on their military service. During the War, all 4 of my GG GF's served the Confederacy.... My ancestors are John Moss, Edward Worth Dowden, John Julian Briggs, and Edward O'Farrell......who was a potato famine immigrant in the 1850s, whose Port of Entry was New Orleans, he was still there at the time of the War, and served as well..... All these are my GG GF's...... I have Archive Records of their services, and copies of all their parole papers from 1865. BTW, the Mosses and Briggs were all Cavalrymen, the Dowdens and O'Farrell's were in Infantry Regiments..... All served in Louisiana units EXCEPT John Julian Briggs, he served in the Second Arkansas Cavalry..... Hope to hear from anyone interested in these folks history....
