|Henry Persons||RE: Aaron Wellborn Mashburn|
Thank you for your reply. I have little knowledge of the Mashburn side of the family. I vaguely remember my father telling me that some builder friend of theirs names two small Georgia towns after my grandmother (Florence) and the daughter-friend of my grandmother. Only Florence, Georgia, survived. I would like to know more about the Mashburn side of my family.
I believe you are correct. I, after some interval, shared a picture of my grandmother with someone on the Mashburn side, but I would have to check my e-mail folders to determine who that was. She was a fine lady, and I was lucky enough to know her until her death in 1965. She fell and broke her hip and my father (and perhaps also my Uncle Joe, her other son) put her in a nursing home near Emory University. She passed while there. I never knew my grandfather as he died some six months before I was born.
Someone years ago said that they had some buttons from Mashburn's uniform. If you know who that is, I would greatly appreciate a good picture of it/them. All I have are the two pictures of him, the one posted on the sight and the one with the unnamed grandchildren. I have an obit for him that was in the Confederate Veteran, but wish I had something more substantial about his life after the war.
I am writing a history of the Confederate brigade in which he served, in part to try to understand just what he endured during the war. As a retired officer from the U.S. Army, I am quite curious and embarked on my quest in 1992 to learn more and to then document my results. I have been writing the history since 2013. If interested, I can include you in my small circle of people who I aperiodically keep informed of the progress we (my co-author, Rick and I) are making. So far, I have written over a 1,000 pages on my half and Rick has done likewise on the brigade's unit rosters. Please advise.
Need to exercise. Have a great day!!

I am the great grandson of Aaron Wellborn Mashburn. The picture depicted of him is from my collection (passed to me by my grandmother, his daughter).
There are at least two errors and one area of possible misunderstanding in his post.
Mashburn's middle name is correctly spelled as "Wellborn," as depicted on his tombstone. Secondly, he had a daughter named Florence Mashburn. She married Joseph Pou Persons (born 8 August 1873 in Talbotton, Ga., died 15 July 1944 in Atlanta--buried in Section B, Westview Cemetery, Atlanta, Ga.).
Florence Mashburn was born 23 January 1879, died 31 July 1965 in Atlanta, Ga. She is buried with her husband at Westview Cemetery.
The couple had two sons, Joseph Pou Persons and Henry Wellborn Persons, both deceased. Both are buried with their spouses in Section B, Westview Cemetery.
Lastly, Mashburn was surrendered by General Lee at Appomattox on 7 April 1865. While technically a prisoner of war, as he was paroled immediately, he never was in a POW camp or held by the Federal troops. I respectfully suggest that this reference be changed to a paroled soldier at Appomattox Court House.
