Leonard Bellar
- Private
We just learned that my great-grandfather was in the Civil War, Griffin's Battalion, Texas 21st Infantry. We have always been known as Ballards, but find some of his records are recorded as Bellar. Being from Louisiana plantation country, how his name was pronounced there may have something to do with this spelling. We just do not know at this point. Be interested in finding out about this battalion in its everyday life during the war.

John was born in Linn Co Iowa 17 April 1836 and moved to Texas as apparently did other members of his family. He served in Co A 21st Regiment Texas Infantry. His brother in law as well as two other relatives are found in this Regiment. in Co I. This was a consolidated unit that served along the Texas coast at Montagorda Island, Sabine Pass and for a short time at Marshall, Texas. They were moved to Shreveport La. late in the war. Their situation is unique as their is no record of them ever being in combat. They served mostly as couriers and scouts. Surrendered June 1865. We are related by a distant marriage. He died 13 Jan 1917 and is buried in Mattox Cem. Diana, Upshar Co Texas
