Death: August 17, 1864, Georgia.

Mississippi State Records.

Toliver Lindsey, 6th., Mississippi infantry, Co. F., ( Crystal Springs Guards ), First Lieutenant, Captain, wounded July 17, 1864, near Atlanta; died of his wound August 17, 1864.

The following letter was written in 1912.

Mrs. M. J. Eagan, of Crystal Springs, Miss., desires to recover the sword of her father, Lieut. Thomas H. Lewis, who was killed in the battle of Shiloh. The sword was then given by her mother to Capt. Tol Lindsey, Company F, 6th Mississippi, who was also killed in some battle. Information about his sword will be very much appreciated by her.

Authors Note.  It would be interesting to know if it was ever found.
