Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 16 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Or I think of Robert and Sarah Milling, of Dallas County, who lost their five sons to the Confederate cause in the 20th Alabama Infantry. Suddenly, I don't feel so bad afterall.

RE: W J Chancellor
Well the one record on ancestry did show a Jackson Chancellor on a Feb. 1864 muster roll "Company Alabama Volunteers". He was from Butler County. I could not find the listing for the unit on the original sheet but it did show the Captain was J.W. Brown and 1st Leu A A Edgar.
Don't know if that means anything or not?

Daniel Jackson Chancellor in Freestone County was the son of Reuben Chancellor, the above Jackson Chancellor's brother. So confusing because they all named their kids the same thing.

Thanks for helping. I have been looking on fold3 but have only gotten more confused. : )

Thanks for the transfer. Many of the men from Freestone County did go back and serve with units from their old homes in Wilcox County, Alabama. It is the joke around here that there probably couldn't have been anyone left in Wilcox County, AL after so many migrated to Freestone County, Texas.

I was trying to find out more information on the headstone listed as Jackson Chancellor, Find A Grave Memorial# 80379465. He never left Butler County, Alabama but I think his headstone states he served in Texas. He was the younger brother of Reuben Chancellor. If you can help me figure out what unit he actually did serve with in Alabama that would be great to post the proper unit on his page. I really hate that it is incorrect but at the time this was done, they did the best they could. I did find on Ancestry a Jackson Chancellor listed in the 1st AL Inf under Butler,AL (which was where he lived) and Jackson's Co., 3 Batt'n. Alabama Reserves, but I wasn't sure which one was correct. Or he could have been in both?

If you have any suggestions that would be great. Fixing to write an article about this family and it would be nice to put the correct information out there with his name.
