Jefferson Lafayette Stampley, b. 1834 in MS, was a 3rd Lt./Capt. in Co. B ("Satartia Rifles") of the 12th Infantry Regiment. Jeff mustered in at Corinth, MS in May 1861 and was mortally wounded at the battle of Savage's Station (aka, Peach Orchard) VA on 29 June 1862 and died three days later following the amputation of his leg. In this same company were Jesse Smith, John L. and Leonidas Stampley. John L. is the only one of these three who was not wounded; they all mustered in together in Corinth with Jeff L. Uniforms consisted of nine-button gray frock coats with dark collar trim, shoulder straps, and cuffs. Pants and hats were plain gray.

David Stampley (1829 MS - 1890 TX) did serve. He, along with John and Richard Stampley, served in the 2nd Battalion of Mississippi Cavalry (aka, Montgomery's), Co. D, "Yazoo Rangers". NFI.

My gggf, Thaddeus Samuel Stampley (1849-1902) enlisted in 1862, shortly before his 15th birthday, in Co. G of the 4th MS Cavalry (aka, Powers' Regiment). His widow, Charlotte Elizabeth Woodyear Stampley, applied for and rec'd a widow's pension in 1927.

Hope this helps.
