grave sites, County and Parish records. Gedcom. Henry served in the Army of the Conferacy and came a lieutenant. Records show him dying in Fayette County of disease. Family lore had him being killed at Shiloh. There is a tombstone in the Weimar cemetery but no grave. Nancy married Watkins L Smith in 1867 and both are buried in the Borden cemetery.

Documentation: Info from various places including grave sites and Gedcom. Henry served in the army of the conferacy and became a lieutenant. Records show him dying in Fayette County of disease but the family scuttlebut says he died at Shiloh and there is no body in the grave. Maybe he was wounded at Shiloh and died returning home and the family was never informed. There is no record of deaths for the first two children. Nancy married Watkins Smith after and her grave site is in Borden. Her husband lived until 30 Jan 1917 and is supposed to be buried in the same cemetary but no stone is to be found. Her stone is greatly deterioriated but readable.
