HARTIN, JAMES A.(1844~1934). James A. Hartin, Confederate Veteran, was born March 4, 1844, in Coffeyville, Yalobusha County, Mississippi. During the Civil War, Hartin enlisted in Company K, 22nd Mississippi Infantry of the Trans Mississippi Army on August 13, 1861. While in service, Hartin was commanded by John S. Bowen, Sydney Johnson, John C. Breckenridge, and John Bell Hood. On July 20, 1864, under Hood's command, Hartin was captured 4 miles from Atlanta and was taken prisoner and held at Camp Douglas, Illinois until the War ended.

In January 1901, Hartin moved to Texas and settled in Ringgold, Clay County, where he was a farmer. On September 6, 1918, he applied for and received a Confederate Pension from the State of Texas. Claiming that his health was "reasonably good for a man of my age," Hartin continued farming and eventually moved to Millsap, Parker County. From there, he moved into the Confederate Men's Home in Austin on October 13, 1934. After living in the Home for a month, Hartin passed away on November 14, 1934, and was buried in the Texas State Cemetery the next day.
