John G Cooper lived to nearly 101. He married a widow with two children in Randolph Co, AL after the war. They had seven more children, moved to Lincoln Co, TN, on to Boone Co, AR, through Indian Territory (Oklahoma), down to Navarro Co, TX then back up to Comanche, Stephens Co, OK. On the occasion of his 100th birthday in 1930, he walked 3 miles into Comanche, to Main st, threw his hat up in the air and let out a 'Rebel Yell.' He also was celebrated on the front page of the newspaper, had a big luncheon birthday party with the Kiwanis Club and ?supposedly went up in an airplane that day.

Frank McWaters - Private   
FRANK WAS A PVT. IN COMPANY E, 17TH ALABAMA INFANTRY, (COMPANY E WAS COMPOSED OF MEN FROM PIKE COUNTY). HE ENLISTED IN SEPTEMBER 1861 AND WAS PAROLED AT TALLADEGA, ALABAMA IN 1865. HE LOST AN ARM SOMETIME DURING THE WAR (PROBABLY HIS RIGHT ARM, AS HIS SIGNATURE ON HIS PENSION PAPERS APPEARS TO BE WRITTEN VERY AWKWARDLY, LEFT HANDED). HE WAS PROBABLY WOUNDED EITHER AT SHILOH (1862) OR IN THE ATLANTA CAMPAIGN (1864) BETWEEN RESACA AND JONESBORO, GEORGIA AS THE 17TH WAS MOST HEAVILY ENGAGED IN THESE BATTLES. (LOSING 125 AND 586 KILLED AND WOUNDED, RESPECTIVELY AT SHILOH AND IN GEORGIA. THESE CASUALTIES WERE OUT OF A REGIMENT OF APPROXIMATELY 1,000 MEN, A RATE OF OVER 70% FOR THESE TWO CAMPAIGNS ALONE.)

DURING GENERAL HOOD'S DISASTEROUS CAMPAIGN INTO TENNESSEE IN THE FALL AND WINTER OF 1864 THE 17TH WAS ENGAGED IN THE SLAUGHTER AT FRANKLIN (LOSING 19 OF 21 OFFICERS) AND THE ROUTE OF HOOD'S ARMY AT NASHVILLE. THEY WERE ENGAGED FOR ONE LAST FIGHT AT BENTONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, BEFORE THE REMNANT THAT WAS LEFT SURRENDERED AND WERE PAROLED BY GENERAL SHERMAN ON APRIL 8, 1865 AT GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA.

AS FRANK WAS PAROLED AT TALLEDEGA AND NOT GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA, HE MUST HAVE EITHER BEEN STILL RECOVERING FROM HIS WOUNDS, OR SERVING WITH A UNIT OTHER THAN THE 17TH.
