25th Texas Cavalry Regiment, Company H

As we noted in the earlier post dealing with Company B of the 25th Texas Cavalry Regiment, many of our Liberty County Confederate soldiers can be found listed in the appendices of Miriam Partlow's 1974 history, Liberty, Liberty County & The Atascosito District. But these two companies were left out of the book. This particular fighting force -- Company H of the 25th Texas Cavalry Regiment, includes a large number of Liberty County men. What makes this such an interesting military company is the fact that so many of the local men who are listed here came from old Acadian families in Louisiana.

Here is the roster. Again, all of the officers are listed in itallics with their rank being duly noted. All Liberty County men, or at least those who appear to have hailed from this county, are highlighted in bold type. We would deary love to make contact with descendants of these soldiers. This company roster shows two different men who commanded this group Both Gilbert Lacour Jr. and John R. Proudfoot served as captains at various times. Although Captain Gilbert Lacour Jr. was no stranger to Liberty County. but it is hard to get a very good bead on Captain John Proudfoot.
