I was wondering if anyone might know this Mr. Mitchell and Abe Canade
(Kennedy?). This was taken from the OR's General Dodge.
"I will merely state what I know to be true. Abe Canade and Mr. Mitchell
were hung two weeks ago for being Union men. They lived on the
Hackelborough Settlement, Marion County, Alabama Mr. Hallwork and
daughter, of same county, were both shot for the same cause; the latter
instantly killed. The former is yet alive, but will probably die. Peter
Lewis and three of his neighbors were hunted down by one hundred
bloodhounds and captured. The houses of Messrs. Palmer, Welsly,
Williams, the three Wrightmens,...."
I think the "Abe Canade" could/should be Mr. David Kennedy ?? Could the
Mr. Mitchell be Abe ??
Did Mr. Hallwork, Peter Lewis, Palmer, Welsly, Williams and Wrightmens
have sons in the Union army" If so what were their names.
Any thoughts on who might be the "three neighbors" of Mr. Peter Lewis ?
Thanks for any help.
