A Special Thank You to ERIC BRANTLEY for the following information:

Also for information on his brother JOSEPH NELSON SWAN who enlisted in Co. E., 47th Alabama Infantry 30 April, 1862 as a private. Joseph late received the rank of 1st Lt. He resigned 4 March 1864. His obituary listed him as "A man of education and culture, an intelligent and prosperous farmer and a consistent Christian, his place will be hard to fill. His patriotism and his Democracy, like his Christianity, were of the highest type. From a wound received in the Civil War, one of his legs was amputated near the hip joint, nevertheless, he led an active life till bad health the last few years. He ably represented this county in the Constitutional Convention of 1875 and in the legislature in 1882-1883. For many years he was an elder in the Presbyterian church." The obituary appeared in the Coosa River News, Centre, Cherokee County, Alabama on Friday the 5th of October 1900.
