Thanks guys!

TX Defender - The first listing, Madison W. Harris 1842-1901 is his headstone.

Javal - That is him alright.  Note the name of his fourth child, Pratt Madison.  Madison gave the name Pratt to his son after a man named Pratt (I don't know if it is a first or last name) that saved his life in the war.  The name, Pratt, has been carried forward in the family to today.

I'm wondering, even though the family history says that he was in the 1st MS, if he enlisted in the TN county where Colliersville is.  How do I find out about that?
