25th Arkansas Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Francis McClellan HayleyRank: 3rd Lieutenant Company: C

When Billy Byram went home (disabled) in early Sept. 1863 the thirteen privates and non commissioned officers of Company C elected F.M. Hayley 3rd Lt., to replace him. Two weeks later he led them at Chickamauga where he was wounded for the second of three times (Murphreeboro, Chickamauga and Bentonville {hospitalized each time}, also slight wound in Atlanta campaign). 25th (30th) Regiment was part of Churchill's, then McNair's, and finally D.H. Reynold's Brigade. F.M. Hayley lived until 1881 and had eleven children with wife Laura Ford Hayley, my Grandpa John Franklin being the youngest. F.M. is buried at Johnsons Chapel Cemetery. New CW soldier headstone is in wrong location. Actual location is same row but just S.E. of son James' headstone (under the cedar trees). I got this info from Ada Mae Hayley Morton. 2012: Also, I am making an educated guess at his middle name. His mother was Martha McClellan from Madison County, Tn. so I say McClellan is his middle name, but many of his generation were named after historical figures from the Revolutionary War. His name could be Francis Marion Hayley. I can always enjoy being corrected. I don't know it all.
