Elijah Maner
Birth: 1831
Georgia, USA
Death: Jul. 17, 1864
Allatoona Ridge
Cobb County
Georgia, USA

After researching all information obtained from the Alabama Department of Archives and various other sites, 'gennie' and I both agree that Elijah was killed at Star Fort during the Civil War. He has to be the lone unknown grave near the railroad as there was no fight happening at that time. His head was blown off in a single shot on 17 Jul 1864. This information is backed up by a diary written by soldiers who served in the same unit and with Elijah Maner. The photo posted are men who were there and contributed to the diary.

Married to Mary Ann 'Polly' Hatfield, 28 Dec 1851, Calhoun Co, Alabama; 2 children: Lynda/Lida and Elijah Eli

In 1900, Mary Ann 'Polly' was ALIVE and living with her son, Eli, in Texas. Wife filed 3 times for his Civil War Pension: 1892, 1898 and 1904 in Alabama; approval document on hand dated Aug 1904. Exact date of death for Mary Ann 'Polly' is unknown but it was after Aug 1904.
