The answer to the first question: Joseph B. Polley, a collateral ancestor of mine.

Edit - Although your ancestor was part of the Texas Brigade and did write a book after the war, he doesn't appear to satisfy all of the other clues. Even if he did, in order to receive credit for a correct answer, you would have had to name the book that he wrote.

Regular question:
He is William Andrew Fletcher (23 Apr 1839 - 5 Jan 1915) and wrote Rebel Private: Front and Rear: Memoirs of a Confederate Soldier.

However, he was born in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana; his family only moved to Beaumont, Texas. The rest of the clues fit though.

Sources: Find a Grave, https://www.ttarchive.com/library/Biographies/Fletcher-William-A_1926_New-Encyclopedia-of-Texas.html, Rebel Private on archive.org


Bonus:
Credit for question, please and thank you. Good luck, everyone! :smile:

William Andrew Fletcher
Book: Rebel Private Front and Rear

Bonus:
James M. McIntosh and John B. McIntosh.

Edit - Correct on both, AJY92332. Welcome to the trivia game and to CivilWarTalk.

If you haven't done so already, you're invited to stop by the New Recruits Meet & Greet forum and introduce yourself to some more CivilWarTalkers.

Hope you'll come back and play again.

Question 1
Though I found info saying he was buried in Beaumont rather than born there, I am pretty sure the desired answer is:
William A. Fletcher
Rebel Private: Front and Rear
