Yes, my Landrums are Thomas S and William Henry Landrum, 2nd and 3rd G Grandfathers.
I was able to confirm family stories when I read Landrums in Gray & Blue Conflicts in Loyalities in Piney Woods Mississippi.

The names of four Landrum men appear on the rolls for that day: Thomas S. Landrum, who gave his age as 43; William P. Landrum, age 28; Henry Landrum, age 18; and John Landrum, age 19. As related in Part 1, Thomas and William Pinkney Landrum were brothers and had enlisted together in the Confederate 2nd Battalion AL Light Artillery in February 1862. They deserted in October following the Battle of Iuka. Henry was the eldest son of Thomas while John was a first cousin (son of Jesse Marion Landrum). Only Thomas could sign his name; the other three made their marks on the enlistment form.
Hi @mcwright ,
If you like I can bump up a thread that has many examples of Union and Confederate guerrillas.
