James Nelson, I have some additional information. I have a list of James' Civil War unit soldier's roster sent to his son--my Grandfather (Abner Beard II)-- in January, 1922. The list was compiled by James M. Hall, one of James fellow soldiers. I have attached copy of the list, but it shows them to have served in the 2nd Arkansas Cavalry (Col. Arch Dobbins, Commanding), Walkers Brigade, Co. "B" under Capt. Rufus D. Anderson. In addition. James Nelson (b. May 16, 1846 in Alabama) was visiting another daughter, Nora Dean in Monette, Ark. where she lived when he died on Nov. 7, 1911. Nora was transporting the body back to Palestine for burial on the train when she was stopped in Nettleton, Ark. Authorities would not let the body continue on the train because it was not embalmed. Nora had to bury him in Nettleton.
