Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 13, 1858
Death: Feb. 1, 1957

This is an excerpt from James Harvey Parks Family by Margie and Gene Garr.
In a 1955 interview, Josie recalled much about the Civil War.
Dalton,Georgia is located near the Cumberland Gap and was the site of one of the
major battles of the Civil War. She recalled how weary the soldiers looked as they marched past the farm of her father. She also recalled the cannon balls from an artillery duel falling in their orchard.
Wounded soldiers were carried to Mr. Parks front porch to await
transportation to the field hospitals following the battle of Cumberland Gap.
