Residences & events:

Nelson Co, Ky, where he was a farmer.

7/1/1861 He felt so committed to the Confederate cause that he enlisted in the Southern army, even though he was already 61 years old, joining Co E of 51st VA Inf along with sons, Merriweather and Alexander, while 2 other sons joined the 19 VA Inf.

6/9/1862 At his advanced age, military life proved difficult and he was discharged before his enlistment year was up.
