James Alexander Tullos
James Alexander TULLOS was born on or about 3 Oct 1844 in Mississippi
(probably Neshoba County), the oldest child of Alfred and Lousia DENNIS
TULLOS. He migrated with his parents to Polk County, Texas, circa 1858,
and is listed with the family in the 1860 Polk County, Texas, census
(named misspelled as TULLIS, as it is on the 1870 and 1880 Navarro
County census, spelled as TULLOS on his tombstone in the Frost, Navarro
County, Texas, cemetery, as well as on his parents tombstones in the
Navarro Mills, Navarro County, Texas, cemetery). He died 26 Nov 1930
and is buried with both of his wives (Cornelia M. PRUITT and Lula B.
CULBERTSON) in the Frost cemetery.
James Alexander TULLOS enlisted in Company E., 7th Texas Mounted
Volunteers, C.S.A., on 31 Aug 1861 at Sumpter, Trinity County, Texas,
according to his application for a Confederate pension from the State of
Texas (number 46709). His second wife, Lula, also received a widow's
pension (number 48096).
According to James Alexander TULLOS' Confederate pension application he
served for the duration of the war. A War Department letter, dated 8
May 1925, attached to his application states:
"The records show that one J. A. TULLOS, age 18 years, enlisted August
31, 1861, at Sumpter, as a private of Company E, 7th Regiment, Texas
Cavalry, Green's Brigade, C.S.A. He is reported on the company muster
rolls as follows: Roll for October 24 to Dec 31, 1861, presence or
absence not stated; June 30 to December 31, 1862, "present, a corporal";
January and February, 1864 "(Corp.) Absent. Detailed to attend to
horses by order General Magruder." No latter rolls are on file and no
subsequent record of him as a member of that regiment has been found."
The 7th Regiment participated in the campaign to capture New Mexico and
Arizona (Jan - Apr 1862). Some of the men died due to thirst while
campaigning in the desert.
Following the unsuccessful Arizona Territory campain the 7th Regiment
particiapted in the Confederate recapture of Galveston, Texas, on 1
January 1863. Elements of the 7th, leaving their horses ashore, boarded
two small ships protected from cannon shot by bales of cottor stacked on
deck (Cotton clads). The Federal fleet was forced to retire, and Union
troops on shore surrendered.
Following the recapture of Galveston, the 7th Regiment was assigned to
the Trans-Mississippi Department until it was surrendered on 26 May 1865
by General E. K. Smith.
