John Chumney - Private   
I believe I have 16 relatives that fought in the civil war. I am a direct descendent of J C Chumney who was a private and fought in the Alabama 61st. I understand my great, great great grandfather and his three brothers fought under Stonewall Jackson. I would like to know if this is verifiable and the flag of the Alabama 61st.

John C Harrison - Private   
I have been unable to find direct archival links of my great-great grandfather to the 61st Alabama, however I have quite a few letters from him that describe his unit in detail. I think he was still in this unit until after April 15, 1863 and was near Richmond. He later transferred to the 55th Alabama under Captain Pinckard and subsequent letters were from Pollard.

Russell John Sparks - Unknown   
On July 1, 1863, Russell enlisted as a private in Company B, commanded by Capt. Rob A. Peterson, of the 61st Regiment Alabama Infantry, at Gadsen, Alabama. There is some indication that he left that military unit a few days later. Perhaps the news that Vicksburg, Mississippi, had fallen to the Union forces on July 4th had something to do with his decision to leave. (D.Hampton..probably correct as his half-brother ,John T Sparks, was captured at Vicksburg but exchanged and sent home about this time.)

My relatives finally found him back in 1998, one month before my Grandmomma passed away from a brain tumor, September 1998. She had been searching for him, all of her life. We visited Confederate Cemetaries all over the Southeast every since I can remember, looking for him, but never went as far north as VA.
