I am the great, great, great grandaughter of Samuel Lyle and Florella Brown Adair. Florella is a half sister to John Brown.
Are there any more Brown relatives on a2k?
It gets worse, I am also kin to U.S. Grant on mom's side and John Bell Hood on my dads and my daughter in law is kin to Robert E. Lee.
A real family screw up.
OR . . . who else has Civil War military kin and what did they do?
I recently purchased a pewter medal which celebrated the 10th year anniversary of the end of the Civil War in California.
Does Famerman have a connection to Grant since he uses his pictture as an avator?
I think he just pays royalties for the use of the picture...
You live in Kansas do you not Rocky?
If so I thought you might know something about the abolitionists, eh?
I may be, but the family has always denied any connection.
I'm south of Lawrence...
and I don't remember hearing about any famous abolitionist rats.
Oh my goodness you must be a confederate.
high seas has been here with her zeroes again.....
what a sea-nut.
Vat are you talking about Rockhead?
Chickasaw is the English spelling of Chikashsha (IPA: [tʃikaʃːa]), meaning "rebel" or "comes from Chicsa".
I thought the Lawrence area was Choctaw country.
I believe it's Pottawatomie now...
My ggrandfather, my avatar, was a member of JAMES BURNET'S BATTALION; 1ST TEXAS SHARP SHOOTERS; CONFEDERATE STATES ARMY. They fought at the battle of Vicksburg and then went to Oklahoma Territory til the end of the war.
What was his name?
I remember going to Vicksburg and there is a monument there with the names of confederate and union officers engraved on it. My great great great grandfathers name was Joel Anderson (from Illinois)his name was on the monument.
