      4th Regiment, Kentucky Mounted Infantry

      OVERVIEW: 4th Infantry Regiment was organized at Bowling Green, Kentucky, in September, 1861, and became part of the Orphan Brigade or Louisville Legion. Its members were recruited in the counties of Barren, Henderson, Union, Owen, Scott, Green, Jefferson, Taylor, Franklin, Estill, Nicholas, Davies, and Trigg. This unit had 213 men disabled at Shiloh, then was active at Baton Rouge and Jackson. Later it was assigned to Hanson's, Helm's, and J.H. Lewis' Brigade, Army of Tennessee. The 4th took an active part in the Battles of Murfreesboro and Chickamauga and saw action in the Atlanta Campaign. During the fall of 1864 it was mounted, aided in the defense of Savannah, and ended the war in North Carolina. It reported 12 killed, 49 wounded, and 8 missing at Murfreesboro, lost twenty-one percent of the 275 engaged at Chickamauga, and totalled 335 men and 251 arms in December, 1863. Few surrendered on April 26, 1865. The field officers were Colonels Joseph P. Nuckols, Jr. and Robert P. Trabue; Lieutenant Colonels John A. Adair, Andrew R. Hynes, and Thomas W. Thompson; and Majors Joseph H. Millett, Thomas B. Munroe, Jr., and John B. Rogers.

      TAPS SOUNDED
      FOR ANOTHER VETERAN OF THE SOUTHERN CAUSE.

      James S. Hayden Dies at His Home at West Louisville--Born in Nelson County.

      James S. Hayden, one of the best known and most highly respected citizens of Daviess county, died suddenly of heart trouble Wednesday afternoon at his home in the West Louisville neighborhood. His death was entirely unexpected, as he was apparently in good health.

      Mr. Hayden, for many years, was a resident of Daviess county and a valuable citizen. He was [born] in Nelson county, Ky., August 23, 1836, and was a son of Joseph Hayden, deceased, a native of Washington county. He came to this county in 1852. He enlisted in Company K, Fourth Kentucky Infantry, Confederate army. He was in many battles and never lost a day's service while in the army. He was married to Miss Mary D. Hayden, on January 28, 1868, his first wife, and eight children were born to them. He is survived by his second wife and five children, four sons and one daughter. Mr. Hayden was a member of the Catholic church and was a Christian gentleman.

      The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock this afternoon from St. Alphonsus chuch, and the interment will take place at the church cemetery.


      From the Owensboro Messenger, 8 Nov 1908, page 7:

      SHOWN THE MEMORY OF JAMES S. HAYDEN
      Meeting of Rice E. Graves Camp of Confederate Veterans Held and Resolutions Adopted.

      Rico [sic] E. Graves camp was called together to take action on the death of Comrade James S. Hayden, who died near West Louisville. On motion the commander appointed the following committee on resolutions: Nick Lancaster, Thomas Murphy and James H. Cottrell.

      The committee reported the following, which was adopted:

      Whereas, One more call, one more answer. J. S. Hayden, member of Rice E. Graves camp, answers to the final call and passes into the great beyond. Brave soldier and good man, always ready, both in the field of battle, or in the peaceful pursuits of life; generous in life, true to his friends, and stood by his political party to the last. When death called he was anxiously scanning the returns of the election, like a [sic] brave soldier he was. "Oh," he said and joined his comrades on the other side. Just a promotion, higher up in the ranks, where the boom of cannons or the strains of a soldier's life is not known. Peace to his ashes.

      J. S. Hayden was born in Nelson county, in the year 1836. Daviess county was his adopted county. He was a member of Captain Millett's company K, Fourth Kentucky infantry, also a member of the Rice E. Graves camp.

      Therefore be it resolved. That we, as members of said camp, express our sympathy and sorrow for the broken link in the chain that is almost too short to be counted. A few of us still remain to gather around one more dead comrade and we extend to the family our heartfelt sympathy.

      Second. That a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the camp roster and a copy sent to the family of the deceased.

      T. M. MURPHY.
      NICK LANCASTER.
      J. H. COTTRELL.
      Committee.
