John Wesley Harless - Private   
Widow's pension applications show Co C 50th AL,Deas' Brigade, which family members have known. The fact that the company is listed as having fought at Missionary Ridge and at Peach Tree Creek gives reason to believe he fought at the first and died at the second. His name (using various spellings) does not show up on any roll found. Have no reason why. Widow was approved for pension at each application which substantiates his service.
