  • Notes 
    • Thirty-Ninth Alabama Infantry Regiment

      This regiment was organized at Opelika in May 1862, and proceeded at once to Mississippi. It was there brigaded under Gen. Frank Gardner, with the Nineteenth, Twenty-second, Twenty-fifth, and Twenty-sixth Alabama regiments. It participated in the weary march into Kentucky, and came back with the army to Murfreesboro. The regiment took part in that battle, and with heavy loss in casualties, having gained much credit for repulsing an attack of the enemy the day before. The regiment was with the army when it fell back to the Chattanooga line, and took part in the battle of the Chicamauga with a very heavy loss of men. At Mission Ridge the loss was light, and the Thirty-ninth, now under Gen. Deas of Mobile as brigade commander, wintered at Dalton. From there to Atlanta the regiment was a conspicuous actor in all the fighting of the army, suffering severely. And when, under Gen. Hood the fate of the Confederacy was risked on the "iron dice of battle," in the trenches of Atlanta, and at Jonesboro, the ranks of the Thirty-ninth were thinned sadly by the casualties of those desperate struggles. It marched with the army into Tennessee, and lost a number of prisoners at Nashville. Emerging from that train of disasters, the regiment rallied to the call of Gen. Johnston in the Carolinas, and took part in the operations there, though reduced to a bare skeleton. It was there consolidated with the Twenty-second and Twenty-sixth-Fiftieth Alabama, but was surrendered a few days later.

      The only man who came over from the fort and not accounted for in our last communication, is Bryan Sholor, who moved to Florida many years ago. In 1818, 1819, and 1820, the following persons with others, immigrated and settled the county to-wit: Wm Mathews, Alexander Watson, Alexander and Neil McAllister, Isaac Morgan, Stephen Mathews, ---- Beauchamp, (father of William and Green Beauchamp), George Stubbs, Thomas S. Kettler, Geo. Stenham, Stephen Williams, Jno. F. Koonce, Mathew and Jeptha Perryman, Joel Deese, John Anglin, Ike Atkins, George Jones, David and Conn Newton, Capt. Stanley, Nick Baker, Josiah and Wm. Cawthon, Simon Smith and two sons Ben and Sidney; Benjamin Lewis, Jeremiah Kimbal, John McGriff and sons William and Richard, the latter of whom is still living in Columbia; John Odom, Avery Odom, Leonard Ham, Ben. Fagan, Tom Black, Giles Carter, Joseph Davis, John and Anderson Campbell, John Fleming, James Nobles, Luke Farmer, two men named Hopkins, Elijah Hardie, Bartlett Poindexter, Alexander Balkum, Christopher Ward, Wm. Norris and three sons --- Barrel, Abud and Icabud, Robert Johnson, Membrance and Andrew Helton, Archie and John McKissack, Jack Green, David Caldwell, Humphry and John Pellum, Robert Richards, Moses Armstrong, Anthony and Bryan McCullough, James Grace and sons James H, and John Thos. Martin, Byrd M. Grace, Bartlett Smith, Ben Snellgrove, Elias Miller, John and Jonathan Majors, Thos. Majors, Ned Majors, Lewis Deal, Wm. Leonard, John and William Bishop, ---- Hutchinson, ---- Fulgen, Daniel Pynes and sons James, Benj.[,] White and Fair Pynes, Benjamin Harvey ---- Evans and son Gammons. Most of these settled on abandoned Indian old field on and near the Chattahoochee, gradually extending the settlements into the interior. Of many of these we shall more particularly speak hereafter. All the branches and creeks were cane breaks of the densest kind: game of various kinds abounded all over the county, and the same quality of lands were when cleared much more productive than now. The chief hunting grounds of the Indians were on the Yattawabbee and the Emersee creeks, the road between which were their trails. The Indian towns were on the river, and the men, accompanied by their squaws, would march out in single file to their hunting grounds camp, kill deer, jerk the venison, dress the hides and return to town laden with the fruits of their toil. With these skins they made moccasins. The squaws always carried their younger children on these occasions strapped across their shoulders. More anon.
