RE: Marcus DeLafayette Long
Hi Laura,
No, my M.D. Long, known as "Dealey" apparently never served in the Confederate Army. He was a railroad employee, and thus was most likely exempt from the draft, and he also suffered from tuberculosis, which killed him a couple of years after the war. He apparently spent most of his time during the war years between Atlanta and Dalton. I've never found him on an army roster.

Mitchell N. Dooley # 90377351
My records show a George Dooley who enlisted in this company on July 13, 1861, but not an M. N. Dooley. However, my listing for this company is not complete.

You might try requesting a photo of this grave, specifically asking for a photo of any Civil War marker. Most of the graves of Civil War veterans in Hart County have markers denoting the company they served in.

WD Purcell in CrossRoads
I don't believe this is the same David Purcell you are looking for. His first name is William & I believe that his middle name is something like DARIUS, after his father....
sorry I could help... Bobbie

Jack Dunn
The Jack Dunn whose memorial you inquired about was African American.

Re: John H. Skelton - 84578632
Yes, this is the John Skelton who served in Co. C, 16th Ga during the Civil War.

I have not been able to determine conclusively whether his middle name was Hamilton or Hampton.

RE: Soloman M Swindle
Hello Laura,
Thank you for your post. Yes, I would love to have Soloman Swindle's Find A Grave Memorial. :) He was my husband's great great grandfather, also from the Ila area. And yes he was in the the 16th GA Infantry. We have only recently found all of this information so I would be honored to manage his memorial.
You had also mentioned Nathaniel Fitzpatrick, which I am sure we are related. I haven't connected to him thru yet but I'm sure I will in time. That is where most of "our" Fitzpatrick's are from. Thank you for taking the time to ask me.
I will be sure to look at the roster for the 16th GA Inf. Who is your great great grandfather?

Thanks, Debbie

Lay Family
Hi Laura,

Thank you for the additional family information. I made the links for you, but I don't have management of the memorials for Sally V. Lay Myers, William Patrick Lay, or Minnie Lay Myers, so I can not make those links, you will need to contact the persons who have management of these memorials and ask them to link them to Cummins McBride Lay and Elizabeth McGhee Lay.

I am not related to this family, and thought I'd let you know that I will be glad to transfer them to you, if you would like for me to.

Until Later.....God Bless,
