Death

12 Jan 1909

Obit in the Mansfield Enterprise: Mr. Martin Lacy of Longstreet died at that place on Friday last. The deceased was ninety years of age, and one of our most respected citizens. He was a Veteran of the Mexican War, and served with the Fifth Louisiana Volunteers. He also served through the Civil War as a Confederate soldier, and always measured up to the standard of a good man and useful citizen. [22]

Panola County, Texas; LACY, Uncle Martin, Residence: Longstreet, Louisiana , Misc.: Was 90 years old; 'taken with the grippe'; an uncle to Lacy boys; known as Uncle Martin in Carthage and Panola Co., Date of newspaper: Jan. 1909. [23]

Martin is buried in Longstreet Memorial Cemetery, Longstreet, De Soto Parish, LA [24]

Disputed Birthplace

In most census records Martin says he was born in Louisiana (1819) and 1 time says in Kentucky. The issue I have is that his father was never in Louisiana. He was in Kentucky, last record was in 1811, then next court record I have him in Alabama in 1821. Was there a route to Alabama via Louisiana?
