This is indeed a rare find. This is a photo from the funeral of Nathan A. Lott, Company D, 7th Mississippi. The photo was taken in April, 1912 at Columbia City Cemetery on Dale Street, in Lamar County. This was part of Marion County at that time. Nathan Lott died on April 26, 1912 so it is reasonable to assume the photo was taken within a couple of days of his death. The Ladies shown at left bear ribbons saying; "Zeno Goss Chapter, U.D.C. #1350." The first man from right is Stephen Pittman of Company F, 7th Mississippi. Three of the men are wearing Confederate medals, and most are thought to be veterans of the 7th Mississippi. The ladies to the far right are possibly the widow and/or daughters? If you can provide more information on this picture or who is shown in it. Please contact us and let us know.
