[Add Flowers]
Pvt./4th Sgt. Francis Marion Burch/Bearch [mis-labeled on some of his service records as "T.W. Burch," but this is Francis Marion Burch] (b. Washington Parish, LA, 1840-d. Washington Parish, LA, 1912), Co. A ("Capt. John H. Slocum's Company," raised in Washington Parish, LA) and Co. K ("Capt. William Turner's Company," raised in Washington Parish, LA), 9th Battalion LA Partisan Rangers. Enlisted into Co. A as a private on May 13, 1862, at Camp Moore, Tangipahoa Parish, LA, at age 21. Present as a private on Oct. 1, 1862, company muster roll. Present for pay ca. Nov. 1, 1862, at unspecified location. Elected 4th Sgt. on Jan. 6, 1863. Present on undated company muster roll, which also notes that he was paid for the use of his presumably private horse 168 days @ 40 cents per day. No further information in his military file. This battalion became the 3rd (Wingfield's) LA Cavalry in Sept. 1864, but Sgt. Burch does not have any service records with this later unit. Buried in the Wallace Burch Cemetery, 2080 Burch Road, Walthall County, MS, with marker type (if any) undetermined. [Note: This cemetery might actually be over the county line and in Pike County, MS.]
