Letter:
Horton Tex May 8, 1897
To all whom it may concern
This is to certify that Jno A. Lafferty was a member of Co "H" 2nd Regt. Tex. Cav. C.S.A. from the 13th day of April 1861 until the close of the War in May 1865 and during all that time he was a true and faithful soldier he was wounded on the 21st day of June 1863 at the battle of LaFouche crossing before Thibedeauville in La. I never gave any of my company a discharge when the war ended we marched out from under the guns of the Federal Gun boats and came home with all our arms and horses so we were neither paroled nor discharged . Pyron Roark Capt Co "H" reg Tex Cav C.S.A.
