276. Thomas S. LANDRUM (Henry Marshell , Thomas , Charles , John D. , John D. , First ) was born on 10 Nov 1816 in Jones County, Mississippi.

Another birth date: 1821.

He lived in Jones County, Mississippi in 1860.

The Landrums and the "Free State of Jones"
Much of Jones County, Mississippi and the Landrum's were against Secession because it was viewed by small farmers of the County as the slaveowners' war.

Many Jones County men avoided the service until the draft was instituted, and many deserted. A large number deserted in disgust after the Confederacy released owners of 20 or more slaves to return to oversee their plantations. The pine woods of Jones County were filled with roving bands of deserters, and the Confederate army was send in an unsuccessful attempt to capture them. Although apparently not literally true, legend states that Jones County seceded from the Confederacy and became the "Free State of Jones".

A "Captain Landrum" fought with Newt Knight's band of Union guerillas in Jones County. Linson Landrum and his brother Thomas deserted th Confederate Army and later went to New Orleans where they joined the Union Army. Linson's brother Henry Marshall Landrum even took the bold step of naming a son after Union General Ulysses S. Grant in 1864. After the Civil War, Jones Countians for a time changed the name of the County and the City of Ellisville to hide their shame.

Thomas moved to New Orleans where his wife and most of his children died of smallpox in 1865. Since the Landrums were known to be sympathetic to the Union, and New Orleans was under Union control later in the War, it is likely they moved there for political reasons.

To join Thomas was also likely the reason that Linson Landrum went to New Orleans after deserting the Confederate Army and taking the loyalty oath, and it is likely that Linson also died of smallpox. After the war, Thomas returned to Wayne County, Mississippi and remarried, He later moved to Sabine Parish, Louisiana.

They lived in Jones County, Mississippi in 1850 and 1860.

Linson purchased land in Jones County in 1855, and in 1857 he contracted with J. G. Dunn to build a grist mill on his land on Tullahoma Creek.

In 1861 Linson and Elizabeth sold land to Daniel Pitts. A Landrum community still exists southeast of Laurel, Mississippi near were Linson and other Landrums lived.

Linson shared the political sentiments of the rest of the family. Although Linson served in the Civil War as a Private in Company A., 48th Mississippi Infantry, he deserted to Union forces of the Army of the Potomac in December 1864 and immediately took the oath of loyalty at City Point, Virginia . In his army record Linson was listed as 6'1" tall, with dark complexion, dark hair and blue eyes. He was sent to New Orleans along with his brother Thomas and joined the Union Army.

Linson died on April 19, 1865 in New Orleans, probably in a smallpox epidemic, which killed brother Thomas' wife. Family legend that he died at Mt. Enterprise, Texas, after the Civil War are surely incorrect. Whether there is a political connection is unclear, but several Landrums moved to Angelina County, Texas, the only county outside of the German Hill Country to vote against secession, and later some moved to Van Zandt County, which was known as the "free state of Van Zandt." Others from Jones County who moved to Angelina County shortly before the Civil Ware are James Parker and Amos Spears .

Linson married Elizabeth A. PITTS daughter of Daniel PITTS Sr. and Margarette WALTERS in 1847 in Jones County, Mississippi. Elizabeth was born in 1827 in Jones County, Mississippi. She died in 1880 in Nachgdoches County, Texas.

Another name: Elizabeth C. Pitts.

Linson's widow Elizabeth remained in Jones County for some time after his death and still lived there in 1870.

In 1878 Elizabeth Landrum and her children sold the "Linson Landrum deceased tract." Her son, Maston, was already living in Texas at the time, and he returned to Mississippi to settle the estate.
Elizabeth later moved to Nacogdoches County, Texas, where she married Elijah Shoemake in 1882. They had two sons, Erastus (Rass) and Ransom.
