Micheal Haver
1 Miss. Lt. Arty. CSA
March 4, 1892

Haver, Micheal, Pvt., b. 1832. He died 4 Mar 1892 in  Vicksburg.

He served in the 1 Miss. Lt. Arty, Co. G. His name on his service record reads Mike Haver. He enlisted 18 Aug 1862 in Vicksburg and was put on detached service as a butcher to a slaughterhouse in Vicksburg.

He was captured at Vicksburg 4 Jul 1863 and paroled 9 Jul.


He is the brother of CSA veteran, Adam Haver, also a butcher by trade and also in the 1 Miss. Lt. Artillery.


It appears that very soon after his enlistment, Mike Haver, a butcher by trade, was detailed to the government slaughter house in Vicksburg. On the Nov & Dec 1862 company muster roll card at right, he is noted as being assigned there.





On the card at right, for Dec 1862, he is still at the slaughter house, as he is in Jan & Feb 1863 (see card above). Beef, pork, and mutton were shipped out by rail to be supplied to the Confederate armies.

On this card above, it is called the Government Slaughter House.






Left, Pvt. Haver became a prisoner of war 4 Jul 1863 at the capitulation of Vicksburg.

Above, his parole, issued 9 Jul 1863.

This 1940 application for a headstone for Mike Haver was made 27 Jun 1940 by Mrs. M. A. Shackford(?). She may have been a descendant of or related to this soldier. His regiment and company is verified and his death date is revealed.

Since his military record at fold3 is in the name of Mike Haver, one would expect to see Mike Haver on his marker. Instead, he has Micheal. A check of other records might indicate the correct spelling of his name.
