Green Mixon, son of Irvin and Martha Sirmon Mixon, was born in, Conecuh County, Alabama, 1844, died in prison camp at Elmira, New 'fork, April 11, 1865. He was a member of Company "A", 1st Alabama Artillery stationed at Fort Morgan, Mobile, Alabama, and quoting from Brewer's History of Alabama (page 695), "The battalion attained a high degree of discipline. . the federal General Granger pronounced it the most perfect body of either army. During the terrific bombardment (August 1864) the battalion handled the guns till they all were knocked out, losing 150 killed and wounded of about 500 engaged. The men were taken to Elmira, N. Y., where fully half died of smallpox".

Green Mixon's name was not in the card index file of Confederate Soldiers in the State Library at Montgomery.

See page 29 of "The Southern Genealogist's Exchange Quarterly" Issue No. 60, Winter 1971.

(Since compiling above information, a letter from Nelson Irvin Mixon (age 80) of Shafter, California, a nephew to Green Mixon, dated April 24, 1972, who had been recently informed of the above military records, says "Yes, this information does match up with that that my mother had told me, except for one thing, that is, he died of pneumonia, and was in the prison camp at Elmira, NY).
