Churchwell Jones Alderman

Birth: Jul. 11, 1836
Grayson County
Virginia, USA
Death: Dec. 12, 1899
Texas, USA

Both Churchwell's family and Charlotte's family were from Grayson County, Virginia originally. The Morris family moved to Highland County, Ohio and the Alderman family stayed in Virginia. The Morris family were Quakers and Churchwell's father was a Methodist preacher. After Churchwell's father died in 1859, Churchwell joined the Confederate Army of Virginia in May of 1862 to fight in Company G, 63rd Virginia Army. He supposedly deserted on or about August 23, 1863. This was actually a huge twist of fate - because his regiment would fight at Chickamauga in one of the deadliest battles of the Civil War less than a month later. After he deserted, I believe Churchwell went up to Highland County, Ohio to stay with the Morris family. I have no proof of that, but it makes sense as he was living in Highland County in 1863. (He told the draft registration people that he was born in Indiana to protect himself). In Nov. 1865 (after the war ended) he married Charlotte Morris. They ended up moving back to Virginia where Charlotte died in 1905. I am not sure how or why Churchwell ended up dying in Texas, so that remains a mystery to me. He was the father of at least six children including: Virginia, Amanda, William, Ellis, Walter and Minnie Alderman.
