      there is no charles richard harris listed in the names of people in the photo. i have learned through family bibles that goodloe warren buford was my great great grandfather and t.p.buford was one of his brothers. there is a nice reprint of the book published in 2000 that is becoming hard to find but there is one listed on ebay if anybody wants one. i am still looking for anybody that has an original copy but so far mine is the only one that i know of.this is a great little book on the civil war and oxford,miss.
