Please review the entries of the 2 Cox brothers made by Namuni Hale Young. Her searching for Edward T. Cox's gravesite helped provide me any information about my Great Grandfather and Great Uncle. She also located the gravesite and helped in putting the new headstone in place and held a Ceremony to honor his dedication for the CSA.

David D Webster - Private   
David D. Webster was approximately 41 years of age when he enlisted in Company F of the 43rd Tennessee Infantry in November 1861. A small farmer, he was a native of Tennessee and apparently grew up in or near Roane County. His mother was Nancy Webster. In 1844 he married Elizabeth Bohannon. His oldest son, Daniel B. Webster, approximately 16 years of age, enlisted at the same time as his father. At the expiration of his initial 1-yr enlistment (November 1862), David re-enlisted as a substitute. His son likewise re-enlisted. Following the capitulation at Vicksburg and after exchange, David and his son, unlike many others, dutifully returned to the army. His son, Daniel B. Webster, was severely wounded in a skirmish at Strawberry Plains, TN in November 1864. Following the surrender David continued to abide in Roane County. He was mortally injured while felling a tree in 1877. A substantial portion of the Websters subsequently emigrated to North Texas in the same time frame (1876-1877.) David and his wife are allegedly buried near Sweetwater, TN but I have been unable to locate their graves. Any further information on David D. or Daniel B. Webster would be greatly appreciated.

John Allen McDonald - Private   
Ggrandpa McDonald was captured at the Battle of Big Black River Bridge near Vicksburg in May 1863. He was sent to Ft. Delaware prison where he contracted, he said measles, but it was probably smallpox. He was sent to the hospital at Chester, PA and later exchanged at Ft. Lee and returned to his unit. He states in his pension application that he was ''scouting in woods full of federals near Loudon, TN'' and got separated from his unit. He states he never found his unit. My guess is he just went home. He had finished his terms of enlistment and was within 45 miles of home.
