Saturday evening With calm res- js
ignation be answered the final sum- t1
obns and peacefully entered upon n
the voyage t,, the unknown country.
The large number of people who f,
aten,ded the obse-quies was a de-t g
served "t'qccognition of the good n
qualities of the deceased. He had .
b-en a dutiful citizen and it was but sl
proper that those who knew of his a
worth should pay him the last trib- lIi
ute of respect. c
He had served his people well in l(
a civic capacity; as a soldier he o
had followed the Confederate flag
-ith unswering' fealty, and in times A
of pestilence, when others less
courageous fled from the insidious
foe, he nursed the sick and buried
the dead. His was a long lite, but J
it was not lived in vain. Five years
snore than the allotted span of three a
score and ten seems a long time to o
be on this earth, but to the busy I
man who has a mission to fulfill n
it is not a minute too long. f
Anderson Joseph Moss, the sub
ject of this sketch, was born in La- E
fayette parish in the year 1825. He
-was the son of Joseph H. Moss and to
Claire Thibodaux. After receiving it
a preparatory education he entered a
Centre College at Danville, Ky.,
then one of .the foremost schools in
the United States. After pursuing t
a course at that institution he read
law, but shortly afterwards discon
tinued his studies and gave his at
tention to the management of his
father's plantaton, which was sit
.tat-ed in the Cote-Gelee section. *
Ea.rly in life he identified himself g
wi:h public affairs and always took "
an active interest in politics. He g
was an adherent of the Democratic r
party then opposed by the Whig a
oreLanization He was elected to
the Le.gislature and in 1852 he r
served as a member of the Consti
titi nial Coi.vention, Fr--m 1853 s
to i86o he he:d a p.isition in the e
(;uston House of New Orleans.
Ini 861 he volunteered his ser
vicei to the Confederate army and n
en.listed in the company which was A
,rganizet in this town with the late
jiil'ge Eraste Mouton as captain. L
He was elected 2d sergeant which J
o,,sititio he held until he was made t
Captaiti and Assistant Commissary a
-f Sub-.isttnce .f the 26th Lou's
iana • Regiment. Of his servicesa
rendered to the Southern cause in
this capacity, the gallant Winches
ter Hall, who became colonel of
the fwenaty sixth, has said: "Cap
tain Moss as commissary was
prompt. active and enterprising
He got the best he could on his
requisitions, and furnished the reg
iment as regularly and bountifully
as is usually lean larder afforded."
The record made by the Twenty
sixth at the battle of Chickasaw
bayou and during the memorable
seige of Vicksburg forms a part of
the glorious history of the Southern
Confederacy. The members ot the
Twenty-sixth left Vicksburg in a
dis(rganit.zed condition. Many had
been killed in the engagements,
some had died in the hospitals
while others nairowly escaped
death by starvation. Capt. Moss,
being among the survivors, was
paroled. As soon as an exchange
was effected he rejoined the army
and served until the end of the war.
After the war Judge Moss re
turned to his home in this parish
and, like other Southern men,
ituade the best of the prevailing
condlitions and went to work to
earn a livelihood for himself and
famil'. In t868 he was elected
parish judge and held that office
