This transcription is from the original Muster Roll that is part of the collection at the Alabama Dept. of Archives and History. I have closely looked at the original document along with photocopies graciously provided by ADHA. Given the age and wear of the document and the handwriting style changes in the ensuing century, it is possible that this nevertheless contains errors. I welcome any additional information or corrections to this transcription.
             Read the description of the  "Our Confederate Heroes"Monument in Livingtson that lists one hundred and thirty two names in panels on the shaft, showing company and command of soldiers from Sumter County, Ala., from the War of 1861- 65.

Hutton, Aquila D. From the October 1910, Confederate Veteran, the following information was learned. Aquila Hutton's parents were Gen. Joseph Hutton and Nancy Calhoun of Abbeville District, S.C., moved to Greene County, Ala. in 1821. Hutton was one of four brothers that served in the Confederate Army:  Lieut. William Bryan Hutton, of Company A, 5th Alabama Battalion, Archer's Brigade, Hill's Division, Jackson's   Corps, was killed in the battle of Chancellorsville on May 3, 1863. Capt. A. N. Porter, who commanded the 5th Alabama   Regiment, in his official report in "War Records," Series   I.,  Volume XXV.,   page   928, states that Lieut. W. B. Hutton, of Company A, 5th Alabama, behaved gallantly till he received a mortal wound. Aquila D. Hutton was a private in Company A, 36th Alabama Regiment, and was wounded in the battle of Chickamauga. Afterwards he was transferred to cavalry and became a lieutenant in the 16th Confederate Regiment. His death, in 1871, was due to exposure by his service in the army. The two others were members of the Alabama Corps Cadets, and the youngest, Emmett Calhoun Hutton, was under fire of the Federals at Tuscaloosa before he was fifteen. Back to the Muster Roll

 

Isbell, James B. Information from a family researcher: James B. Isbell was born on a plantation in Sumter County, near Gainesville. After serving a couple of years in the 36th Ala., he transferred to Forrest's cavalry corps, and later was elected captain of Co. H, 16th Confederate Cavalry (I can find no record of this regiment on the Internet). He served at Fort Pillow, the battle of Atlanta, Franklin, and Nashville. He surrendered on May 9, 1865, with Forrest's command at Gainesville, just a few miles from his birthplace. After the war, he moved to Arkansas, where he was a farmer and orchardist. His apples took first prize and a gold medal at the St. Louis World Fair in 1904. He died Feb. 8, 1914, and is buried in Clear Creek Cemetery, Horatio, Arkansas.

Newton, Isaac and Joseph Patrick. These are two of the six sons of Richard Newton, Sr., that served in the War. Sadly, Isaac was one of the three sons that were killed in action.

Winston, James M. The June 1905 Confederate Veteran, p. 283, noted, "Another one who wore the gray during that fearful period of 1861 65 has passed over the river to appear before the bar of eternal justice, where motives are not misjudged and acts are judged m love and mercy." Capt. James M. Winston was seventy-eight (born about 1827) when died at his home at Ramesy Station, Sumpter Co., Alabama. His obituary cites that he joined the 36th Alabama Regiment early in the War and in the spring of 1863 he transferred to the cavalry joining a new company being raised by Dr. D. H. Williams of Gainsesville, Ala. Winston was elected First Lieutenant and this company was was attached to a regiment commanded by with Col. Isham Harrison of  Mississippi. Winston's new company was later transferred to the 16th Confederate  Cavalry  Regiment, which was then commanded by Col. Armstead. After Dr. Williams, then Captain, was promoted to brigade surgeon, James Winston succeeded him as leader of Company A. Winston was Captain of Co. A. when it was surrendered by  Gen.  Forrest at Gainesville, Ala., in May, 1865. Married to the former Miss Broadway, Winston's widow, four daughters and one son survived him.
