Stock Certificate 10” x 6-1/2”, for five $100 shares issued to David Guyaz in “Southern Pacific Railroad Company” stock, issued in Marshall, Texas, April 12, 1859. The railroad was used extensively as a Confederate supply line, and about 1,000 soldiers were assigned to protect it and to keep it operating during the war. Scheduled service was operated from Houston to Orange from 1862 to mid-1863 and irregular service until early 1864. The completion of a line between New Orleans and Texas was a high priority of the Confederate government, and work continued on the Louisiana Division during the early months of the Civil War.
