14th Texas Cavalry - Colonel Matthew Duncan Ector 1st Brigade - colonel D.H. McCray 3rd Division Confederate Army of Kentucky. Dec. 31, 1862 - Battle of Murfreesboro, Tenn. 1st Brigade - Brig. Matthew D. Ector McCown's Division - General J.F. McCown Hardees Corps - General Wm. Joseph Hardee confederate Army of Tennessee - Ben. Baxton Bragg, Gen Wm. Joseph Hardee, Gen Wm. H. T. Walker Gen. M.D. Ector commanding them He led his Brigade through the battle of Murfreesboro, Tenn. (30,31 December 1862 -1 January 1863); then he and his Brigade were ordered to Mississippi to join Johnston's army in an attempt to relieve Pemberton out of the Vicksbury trap. July 4, 1863 - Fall of Vicksbury. He fought in this campaign, and after the fall of Vciksbury in the retreat west across the Mississippi, he fought in the battle of Jackson, Miss. July 9, 1863 - Battle of Jackson, Mississippi. September 18-20, 1863 Ector and his command were sent to Tennessee to re-enforce Bragg in the Battle of Chickamauga, where Ector was wounded three times. The command lost 60% in casualties. Chickamauga: Ector's Brigade - Brig. Gen. Matthew D. Ector Gist's Division - Gen. S.R. Gist Walker's Corps - General Wm H.T. Walker confederate Army of Tenn .- Gen. Braxton Bragg Polk's Army - General Leonidas Polk CSA Until May 1864 - Returned to Mississippi theater under Johston, went into winter quarters until May 1864 when he moved into the Georgia campaign. In February 1864 in the organization of the Army of Mississippi Commanded by Lieut. Gen. Leonidas Polk the Ector Brigade, Under M.D. Ector was included. May through July 1864 - The Georgia Campaign: Ector and Brigade were under fire for over 70 days fighting at: 1. Resaca, Ga. 2. Casville, Ga. 3. New Hop Church (Ector was wounded again) 4. Latimar House 5. Kennesaw 6. Smyrna 7. Chattahoochi River 8. Peachtree Creek 9. Siege of Atlanta (Gen. M.D. Ector lost a leg in the battle of Atlanta.) While in a parapet directing the fire of his Brigade artillery, Ector was wounded from shell fragments. The Captain of the Artillery Battery was killed from the same shot. This was on the 27 July 1864. Ector was immediately removed from the lines to the rear where his leg was amputated above the knee(the left leg). The shooting war had ended for Matthew D. Ector. His Brigade continued and was in the last Division to leave Atlanta. French's Division was the only one stationed within Atlanta during this siege. THE GEORGIA CAMPAIGN: When Polk's Arm (Gen. Leonidas Polk) joined Gen. Joseph Johnston's , ECTOR'S Brigade consisted of: 10th Texas Cavalry Regiment (dsmtd) - Col. C.R. Earp 14the Texas Cavalry Regiment(dsmtd) - Col. John T. Camp 32nd Texas Cavalry Regiment (dsmtd) - col. J.A. Andrews was brought into the field. Ector's Brigade was part of Gen. Samuel G. French's Division from Ressca, Georgia to the end of the Georgia Campaign. October 5, 1864 - The Brigade fought at Allatoona, Ga. and then as part of Hodd's Army of Tennessee made a desperate invasion of Tennessee and fought in the hopeless battle of Nashville. DEC/ 15-16, 1864, where Hood's Army was completely routed and defeated on the field of Battle. They covered the peel-mell retreat of the Army and the next year in March-April, 1865, the Brigade, Pitifully stripped of rank and file defended Spanish Fort near Mobile, Ala. Ector having sufficiently recovered was notified and Commissioned. Major-General to take command of the forces at Mobile: but by the time he and his little son, Walton H. Ector, reached Mobile and Spanish Fort, it had fallen and he rejoined his Brigade at Meridian where they were paroled May 10, 1865. His appointment as Major General was never officially recorded; but I have found tow separate references to his Commission as Major General. I suppose the Confederate Government was in such a turmoil at this stage that the President and/or Congress never confirmed the appointment. During the War Ector was wounded 8 times and had eight horses shot from under him. The regiments that comprised his Brigade went in over 8,000 strong. When they were paroled in 1865, only 540 survived. This indicates the fierceness and hard fighting Ector and his men endured. The following is a copy of memoirs of the Civil War written by my Father, Walton H. Ector, in his own handwriting, who entered the War as a boy of 14 years

. Joseph F. Ector Sr. Houston, Texas September 10, 1957 " About the 8th of June 1861, my father and myself started from Henderson (Texas) with Greer's regiment. My father was elected as First Lt. of Cumby's Co. and afterwards promoted to Adjutant of col. Greer's Regt. being rank of Major. We were mustered into service at Dallas a few days thereafter, and until we were dismounted at Duvalls Bluff he held this position. At the battle of Oak Hills he was in the thickest of the fight. At Chicbebencelo (?) his horse was shot down under him in a charge we made on the Indian Chief, Opathulahala, still he led the charge on foot up the mountain (there Doc Durham fell). At Elk Horn battle (Federals call Pea Ridge) he was conspicuous. We were dismounted at Duvalls Bluff and then went to Memphis, Tenn. Papa fell at Atlanta on 28 July 1864 in the fort on the line of his brigade, his leg was amputated same day by Army Surgeons. I carried him to Griffin, Georgia. He recovered and went from there to Greenville and from there to Norman, Georgia. Went from there to Meridian, Mississippi where he married S.P. Chew, daughter of Dr. W.R. Chew, he then returned to Merrwether County, Georgia where he was appointed Major General of the Confederate Army and was assigned to the command of Mobile, the Atlanta and West Point road having been destroyed by raiders and Federal Troops and having no way to get to Mobile we went across country from LaGrange, Georgia to get to the Alabama and Tennessee River Road to approach Mobile and by the time we got near Mobile, Fort Blakely and Spanish Fort fell, surrendering, and at Meridian we met the surrendered forces, paroled. During the War father was slightly wounded eight times, once beside when he lost his leg. He had eight horses killed . When he lost his leg it was the third wound in that leg.
When Matthew Duncan was about to leave to join the Confederate Army, his > young teenage [13 or 14 years old] son, Walton H. Ector begged and begged and > begged...etc., to be allowed to accompany his Father to "the fight." Naturally, > Matthew Duncan wanted young Walton to stay at > home with his Mother. Finally, in return for a promise to stay at home, Matthew > Duncan presented Walton with a beautiful pony--a paint, if my memory serves me > corectly. Having Walton's promise to stay at at home, Matthew Duncan left to > join one of the first Texas companies that was > formed. A few days after joining up with this new Texas Confederate Company, > guess who showed up--new pony and all. That's right, it was Walton H. Ector, > son of Matthew Duncan Ector. And, according to my Dad's understanding, young > Walton fought alongside his Father's side for the remainder of the war.>>> > Regards, > Joe [Joseph Fort, Jr.] Ector > > -------------------- > James D.

With sad but dauntless heart he returned to his home in Texas and > resumed his profession, but his efficient services were soon called to another > sphere of public duty, and in 1866 he was elected judge of the Sixth Judicial > District. He held that office one year and was then deposed by the Federal > General, Reynolds, as being one of the Southern obstructionists. In 1867 he > removed to Marshall and resumed the practice of law in partnership with Col. N.. > H. Wilson and the firm enjoyed a distinguished reputation. In 1874 Judge Ector > was appointed by Governor Coke judge of his old district, which had become the > Seventh District in consequence of the reorganization of the judicial districts > of the State. > When the Court of Appeals was erected {?created?} by the Constitution of 1875, > he was elected one of the judges of that tribunal, and upon its organization in > 1876, he was chosen by his colleagues its presiding judge and held that position > at the time of his death which occurred at Tyler, during the session of the > court on the 29th of October, 1879. > > > -2- > > Judge Ector brought to the bench of Appeals the varied experience of a long > and successful criminal practice which eminently qualified him for the position. > As Chief Judge of this court of last resort, upon which hung the issues of life > and liberty to the unfortunate victims of vice or passion, he admirably blended > the firmness and candor of judicial dignity and official duty with the dictates > of compassion and mercy. He never lost sight of sensitiveness of the > responsibility of his position and announced no opinion until he was assured > that it was fully justified by the facts and demanded by the law, and then he > made the scrupulous measure of his judgments. He was therefore just and correct > in his decisions, and his career upon the bench was highly instructive as well > as exemplary. His desire was to elevate the new court at once to the highest > plane of appellate dignity, and his decisions add much to the criminal > jurisprudence of the state. > The life of Judge Ector was not exempt from the sorrows which beset the paths > of men. Death often invaded the altar of his affection and tore away the > companion of his bosom. He was married three times. He was first married in > 1842 to Miss Louisa Phillips of Georgia, who died in 1848, and in 1851 he was > again married, to Miss Letitia W. Graham. She died in 1859, and in 1864 he was > married the third time, to Miss Sallie P. Chew, of Mississippi, a lady endowed > with many charming virtues and who cherishes his memory with the devotion which > characterizes the noblest of women. > In social life Judge Ector was a model of courtesy, gentleness and amiability. > He was constant in his friendship and delighted in acts of civility and > kindness. One of his associates on the bench, Judge John P. White, says of him: > "In his character were mixed and blended all those genial traits and pure > elements which go to make up that highest perfection of humanity, God's noblest > work--an honest man". > He was held equally as high in the esteem of the judges of the other high > courts and in the affection of the people. His remains were borne to their > burial at Marshall by the judges of the Court of Appeals, the Justice of the > Supreme Court, the Commissioners of Appeals, and the members and attendants of > the bar of Tyler, and were thus laid away with all the honors which his > associates and professional brethren could bestow upon them.
