General Notes: Husband - William Pepperell MELLEN
=================================================================================================

     Here's the only picture of your great grandfather that we've been able to locate.
     I don't think he was a northern sympathizer in the least. As the editor of the
local newspaper, he was probably highly opinionated and supportive of the southern cause.
Your grandfather didn't flee to TX until Natchez was threatened by Northern troops. When
the city leaders decided to surrender the city, rather than face the destruction that so
many other southern cities experienced, your grandfather appears to have been one of the
opponents of that surrender. Our research indicates that he was captured (by Northern
troops) in Texas and died in a prisoner of war camp, located in Arkansas.
     Hope this is helpful.
