  1. Whitten in Q22013 is my greatgrandfather

  2. I came across the “thin grey line” photograph as well through my own genealogical research into “The Autauga Guards” led by T. L. Faulkner. I think believe the two gentlemen in the back row, to the far right, are W.W. (billy)Myrick, of Robinson Springs, and George A. Myrick. George was my great-great grandfather, and joined his older brothers into war when he was 14-15 years old. These gentlemen were the brothers of Lady-bird Johnson’s grand-mother Sarah (Sallie) Jane Myrick Lewis Pattillo. I believe you also covered Claudia Alta Taylor’s Autauga county Roots. I believe this photo was taken just after the turn of the 20th century 1902-1907. ill have to check my bookmarks at the ADAH website.http://digital.archives.alabama.gov/cdm/search/searchterm/myrick!autauga%20county%20(ala.)/field/all!subjec/mode/all!all/conn/and!and/order/date/ad/asc
