John, Fran, and all interested in the subject. I have learned more during the past couple of years about my family, than all the years prior.
I had though that I was just anothr "Nawthener"
and that my kin were those in Blue. HOWEVER...
my Motjer's father fought as a Confederate soldier...UNDER the command of his father who was
Milus Eddings Johnston. He was a Lt. COL in command of the 25th Alabama Cavalary. They called him "Bushwhacker" Johnston. Put that name into GOOGLE and you will find out more.
So isn't wonderful to be able to discover such things without endless searching old papers, libraries, Bibles, etc., etc.
We've come a long way, Baby!!
