RE: L. C. Farmer
I know, right?! My aunt said his parents always called him "LC" My dad never knew him my any other name. My husband suggested that they may have called him "Little Charles" at first and shortened it to L C since his father and grandfather were Charles. I know his father went by "C.C." and his grandfather actually went by Charles.

RE: L. C. Farmer
My aunt just informed me that she found L. C.'s birth certificate and it says "Charles Farmer" Now we are wondering where the "L" came from....

RE: L. C. Farmer
I know someone who had that issue. His name is J. but he has a middle name, so he had to use his middle name on his military applications. It could be what happened with my grandfather.

RE: L. C. Farmer
Hey, my dad did not know anything of Charles in his name, but I contacted my aunt who had dabbled in genealogy a little (and was around her dad much more than my father) and she said that when she was cleaning our her dad's place, she found a paper that listed Charles on it, but could not remember exactly which one, but thought it may be his military records. She said his birth certificate only says, "L. C." but that after he and my grandma divorced, he started going my the name Charles. She said she will let me see the records at Christmas when we visit. I a going to place Charles as a nick name for how until I can see the records at Christmas and then, if it seems that his middle name was actually Charles, then I will change it on the memorial. JC

L. C. Farmer
Janie, I will show this to my dad to see what he says. Growing up I was always told his name was L. C. and the letters did not stand for anything. I remember asking my dad why he was named with just letters and he said he didn't know why. I would completely understand his middle name being Charles since it was his father and grandfather's name, however, since my dad was his son, it is hard to believe he would have never known his father's full name if he had one, since my father was over 30 when my grandfather passed away.

RE: Jacob Hawk
I have been to the battlefield a couple of times, and somewhere I have a photo of the monument to the unknown dead there. The main burial trench is near the field hospital, but I was told that was not the only place the Confederates were buried. Not knowing what day he died on, it is hard to say that he is buried in the "main" trench. I know the 56th did some very hard fighting on the last day, and help to delay the Yankees while the army and General Johnston escaped capture. That location is on the north end of the battlefield and not near the field hospital at the south end. I am glad to see that he is listed on the "roll". Last time I has there (probably 8 years ago) he was not.

RE: Jacob Hawk
His record (CSR cards) show that he was admitted to the Ocmulgee Hospital in Macon for a gunshot would on June 5, 1864. Based on the 56th's hot fight at New Hope church the end of May, 1864, I am assuming the wound was received there. You know, of course, he was captured at Champion Hill, Miss the year before and went to prison, exchanged, and returned to duty for the Atlanta campaign. Only hospital and capture records exist for most of the Army of Tenn for the Atlanta campaign and afterward. (see Fold3).

I got the canteen many years ago from a dealer in Miss and sold it to a man at the Franklin, TN Civil War show a three years ago...don't know his name. I may be able to find a photo I made of it. If I do, would you like a copy? I would need an address or fax number.

Hawk was one fine and faithful soldier.
