Theodore Luckett Lanier - Captain   
Under the command of Colonel John Q. Burbridge, T. L. Lanier enlisted on 4 December 1861, and his appointment to 1st Lieutenant was 8 May 1862. On 28 April 1863 he was promoted to the rank of Captain. Surviving at least 12 significant campaigns of the Civil War, Capt. Lanier was twice severely wounded in the Battles for Corinth and Franklin. His nurse at the Battle of Franklin, Miss Laura Johnson, would become his wife. Other campaigns in which he engaged the enemy include the Battles of Lexington, Elkhorn, Farmington, Iuka, Grand Gulf, Port Gibson, Bakers Creek, Big Black Bridge, Vicksburg and Alatoona.
Capt. T. L. Lanier's genealogy, history, war record, writings (The Confederate Veteran - a defense of General Pemberton), and epitaph, are all testament to a man's (and soldier's) life of impeccable honor and integrity. Capt. Lanier’s epitaph was listed in The Confederate Veteran, Jan - Dec. 1903:
T. L. Lanier At Waverly, Tenn., on April 4, many friends of Captain T.L. Lanier assembled to pay a last tribute to one who in life was patriot, soldier, friend. The death of this brave man, strong in spirit always, in spite of physical weakness, was a source of much sorrow to the members of Camp Alonzo Napier, 1349, U.C.V., of which he was the faithful commander.
'Capt. Lanier was born in Lincoln County, Mo., March 1, 1841, and at the beginning of the war enlisted as a private in Company G, Second Regiment, Missouri Infantry Volunteers under Price. He was afterwards promoted to first lieutenant of his company, and a little previous to the siege of Vicksburg was promoted to captain, and after the fall of Vicksburg was transferred with his company to the Army of Tennessee. He was wounded at the battle of Corinth, and at the battle of Franklin, while leading his company, fell, his body pierced by seven bullets of the enemy, and was bourn from the field by two comrades, who were the only ones of his company who were not killed or wounded in that battle. His devotion to the interest of the Veteran will not be forgotten. '
