Bradford Henderson Altman served as a Confederate soldier in the Civil War. He enlisted 30 Sep 1861 at Batesville, AR. He was captured and exchanged 1 Sep 1864 at Rough and Ready, GA. He was a 2nd Lt in Company K of the 8th Arkansas Infantry Regiment. He took a 75 day leave from Tupelo, MS 22 Jan 1865. Company K mustered out 9 Apr 1865.
He married Martha Ann Steele on January 24, 1866. They moved to Erath CO., Texas and had 16 children but only 4 reached adulthood: Wiley, Annie, Sidney and Ada.
The following is a listing of all children:
Sidney Wilson, Dgt 1, Dgt 2, Annie Margaret Jane, Wiley Futhy, Alice Houston, Minnie Elizabeth, Georgia Francis, Son 1, son 2, Ada Madora, Della Skillern, John Bradford, Tommy Henderson, Dgt 3, Dgt 4.
The graves of the 4 children who lived to adulthood are listed elsewhere on this site. Of the children listed in the Carlton Cemetery only 3 graves could be located. Those are Della, John and Daughter 3. The other children are listed here only to document their attachment to these parents. There burial sites are unknown. Since the family lived in the same area I would presume the children are most likely buried here without headstones to mark their graves.
