  2. Great pics. I wish I could find pics of my gr gr grandfather who was from Maryland and fought in 7th Va. Inf. And two othrs from SC.

  3. Donna, I have been following you for several years. And your site is still so very interesting.
    I enjoy all your confederate pictures, and stories. My great grandfather, John Gray Little was b. in Bibb Co., and fought in the 20th AL Inf. Co. H. He and a brother were captured and sent to Camp Douglas, where his brother died. But my great grandfather made it home. I have his Civil War Blanket, and in excellant condition. My mother had it (his granddaughter), and then gave it to me before she died. I wonder if there are any pictures at all of his unit. He died in 1935 at age 93, in Mississippi. He was a very precious man, and loved his family, beyond measure. If you have any info on that unit, please post it here. Thank you for all you do, and have done.

  4. Captain Bickerstaff is my great great great grandfather. His daughter Elmira married William Francis Dudley from Russell County. William and Elmira’s daughter Annie married David Alfriend Dudley Jr. And their son William is my mother’s father. William Bickerstaff had another son, Robert Humber Bickerstaff, who died in Halifax, VA during a measles epidemic at Sangter’s Crossing CSA camp. Thank you for posting these.
