Notes
a. Note:   nown about his wife other then her name was Nancy. What is obvious is that they called Old Friendship Church home for that is where they are resting. They lived beside the old Plank Road about six miles northwest of Carthage and their home was almost directly across the highway from the present Calvary Baptist Church. Old Friendship is two and three fourths miles northeast of there. We may not know a lot about Jesse and Nancy but their children we are very familiar with. Two daughters and five sons of which four served in The Civil War...William Riley Mus was the only son married when hostilities turned in to war. One of his brothers chose to enlist in his place. Three of those four never returned after answering the call. They are scattered from the coast of North Carolina to Gettysburg and on to Elmira New York. It is a story of one family's sacrifice-courage and honor. It is a story in the crumpled pages of time that has all but been forgotten. May we never forget those proud-brave Confederate soldiers who took a stand for states' rights. May we also never forget the cost.
