This site names 160 men on the roster of the Winston Guards, later designated Company A (B). The names are attributed to Works Progress Administration data gathered in Winston County in the 1930s. The county is in the east central part of the state on the southern edge of the Tombigbee National Forest.
Jess McLean’s book, however, lists just 137 men for the Guards, making for a hard mystery for anyone searching for an ancestor that family lore says was in this one of the regiment’s companies. And so it will probably go with the other nine companies as well. Confederate records are unreliable at best, and those for Mississippi can be the least reliable of all.
UPDATE: H. Grady Howell Jr.’s oft-described-as-definitive lists have 175 men for the Guards in this
$24 $22 Muster Roll for the Griffith/Barksdale/Humphreys’ Brigade. It’s worth noting, however, that only McLean’s pricier effort (currently at $130 in paper, and $40 in CD) solely for the 13th has at least some details on each man. Howell has only the names and ranks.
