I thought you had my e-mail address! email@example.com
|Dan Botts||RE: Your Profile Photo|
Yes it does. When I began doing research on my ancestry, my main goal was to find family members who fought for Virginia. One ancestor that was of particular interest to me was a young teenage boy name Alexander Bott. He was killed in action at the Battle of Cedar Mountain on August 9, 1862. His relationship to me was a 1st cousin 3x removed. I have heard from some of my family members about his demise over the years and it really peaked my interest. Alexander had 2 brothers, Charles and Joseph, and a 1st cousin who served with him in the 42nd VA Infantry. When I came across this particular photo, I thought it would make a nice tribute for them. I personally call it "Company E. 42nd VA Infantry.

Thanks for pointing out that glaring typo on my grandfather's birth date. Those things endure for far too long sometimes!

|T.J. White||Isaiah Bagley Sr. and wife Elizabeth White|
I'm curious to know what your source(s) might be for Elizabeth's maiden name being "White." Reason I ask is because Isaiah Bagley Sr. was a neighbor to my 5th gr-grandfather Jacob "Jake" White Jr. (1772-1861) on Leatherwood Creek in Franklin County, Georgia, in the first decade of the Nineteenth Century. In fact Jacob White Jr. purchased a tract of 470 acres from Isaiah Bagley Sr. in November 1810 (on said Leatherwood Creek in said county). That same month, on the first of the month (Nov.), Jacob White Jr.'s wife Sarah Williams gave birth to a son, whom they dutifully named "Samuel ISAIAH White," probably after Jacob White's two neighbors about that time, Samuel Bolling and Isaiah Bagley Sr. I am strongly suspecting that Elizabeth White Bagley may well have been a sister to my ancestor Jacob White Jr., but simply have no other evidence to support my hunch besides the very compelling circumstantial evidence I've just recited. Any help will be much appreciated!
Isaiah Bagley's father was apparently Henry Bagley Sr. [d.1802] of Chatham County, NC, and this is indeed where Jacob White Jr.'s father [possibly step-father] Jacob White Sr. shows up in deed records of the 1780s, and the 1790 Federal Census. Isaac Brewer's Talladega County, Ala. Rev. War pension application says that he served in said war with "Henry Bagly" and "Jacob and Andy White," among others, all in Chatham County, NC. See: http://www.isaacbrewer-familyhistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/BREWER_ISAAC_5g_RevWarPension_18Mar1846TalladegaCoAlabama1.pdf . Somewhat ironically, recent DNA tests have conclusively proven that my ancestor Jacob White Jr. was genetically from the same family as that Isaac Brewer!
