Andrew C. Thomas - Private   
Andrew C. Thomas enlisted as a Private in Rusk, Cherokee County, TX on April 7, 1862 for 3 yrs. service. He joined Capt. Thomas R. Bonner’s Company, W.B. Ochiltree’s Regiment of Texas Volunteers (which subsequently became Company C., 18th regiment Texas Infantry).
The company bivouacked at Camp Nelson where he became ill with black measles and died on November 13, 1862. Literally hundreds died of disease at that camp that winter, and they were buried in mass graves in the woods near the camp. In 1898 a group of Confederate veterans relocated the remains of 428 rebels in what is now the Camp Nelson Confederate Cemetery, about 14 miles northeast of Little Rock, Arkansas, near Cabot, Arkansas.

William C. Oney - Private   
From what I could gather from my research, William C. Oney was in the battles at Pleasant Hill and Mansfield, LA., where the Confederates had a great victory to keep the Union soldiers from moving into Texas. He was then sent to Camp Nelson, Arkansas, where he died of typhoid fever. He is buried in an unmarked grave there, as were many of the other soldiers who died at Camp Nelson. If anyone could help me learn more, or if some of this information is wrong, please contact me. He was in Company D 18th Texas Infantry.

James A. H. Clifton - Private   
KIA Civil War. My 2nd Great Grandfather, born May 19, 1834, Lawrence County, TN, and was KIA sometime in 1863 in Louisiana. Moved to Hopkins County, TX, in 1845 with his family, father Wilson Clifton and mother Sarah Welch Clifton. Enlisted at Bright Star (Sulphur Springs), Hopkins County, April 1, 1862. Served in Company E, 18th Texas Infantry, The Grayrock Volunteers. Never returned home from the war and orphaned three sons all under the age of 5. Widow Martha Jane Garrett Clifton, daughter of William Garrett and Susannah Huggins, remarried Teddy Medders in Sulphur Springs in 1864. Since all of the men in the 18th Texas Infantry enlisted from Bright Star (Sulphur Springs), it is likely there were many family members, relations and friends serving together. I would be happy to correspond with any descendant of the 18th Texas Infantry, especially Company E, and share family information. If anyone has a Civil War diary from this regiment, please contact me. Thanks.
