31 year old Quin M. Menefee was a Methodist Episcopal preacher in Texas when he enlisted in the 4th Texas Infantry as a private soldier in March 1862. In September he was terribly wounded at Sharpsburg and his right leg was amputated. He returned home to farm and preach – at La Grange in Fayette County – but was struck down by yellow fever in September 1867, just 37 years old, leaving a widow and 4 children.
