TEXAS

 SSBTN 49. Set of two Texas Militia Coat Buttons identified to Robert Tinnin, 22nd Texas Vol. Infantry.

TX 17, 23 mm. These buttons were acquired directly from the family who maintain that they came off the coat of their ancestor Robert Tinnin. They produced a copy of a 1973 newspaper article which concerns the brothers Robert and David Tinnin. The article is a bit vague but says that they served at some point under a Colonel Hubbard of the 22nd Texas. The 22nd was consolidated with other units and  an R.S. Tinnin was found in the 11th Texas which incidentally was combined with the 22nd near Shreveport, LA. I will leave this research to the buyer. The article mentions Robert’s life being saved by having a tintype of his mother in his breast pocket that had stopped a bullet (battle unspecified). David is mentioned as being wounded in the foot. (This is corroborated by one of my colleagues who has a medical research document concerning David Tinnin. It mentions him being wounded at Jenkins Ferry, Arkansas and also that he was in the 11th Texas Regt. I will provide a copy of the article to the buyer. The buttons themselves are superb and one still has the original thread still attached.
