Amos J. Turner - Private   
AJ Turner was my great-great-grandfather. Through family research it was discovered that AJ Turner's regiment was in the line of battle side-by-side at Chickamauga with his future in-laws by marriage in the 5th Texas Infantry. I found the markers by chance on a road trip to Chickamauga and thought this was an uncanny fateful occurrence considering these future relatives had no knowledge of one another's existence and maybe never did.
