<< Did Mr. Hallwork, Peter Lewis, Palmer, Welsly, Williams and Wrightmens
have sons in the Union army" If so what were their names. >>
Dave - the Hallwork is actually George Hallmark & his daughter (reported by
W. Thompson & others); George had four sons in 1st Ala Cav (James W.; Tom
Frank; George N; & John M. - son Wm Hopwood, "hid-out"; he also had
sons-in-law in 1st Ala Cav; John D. Crow; James Killingsworth; Tom A.
McWhirter & one son-in-law in CSA (John Ingle)
Peter Lewis joined 1st Ala Cav abt Feb 1863 (see "Winston..." by Dodd & Dodd,
pg 272; he died of measles Apr 15, 1863); can only guess at the others. I
have record of two daughters/two wives of Peter Lewis but no sons recorded.
He had two bros in 1st Ala Cav (Isaiah & Wm Wiley) but also two Rebs
(Shadrack & John Boley) with four more brothers of unk affiliation & possibly
"hid-out" (George, Ephraim, Thomas & Benjamin).
Regarding Abe Canade > your suggestion that he could be Dave Kennedy is
plausible [Kennedy is alternately spelled phonically by Marion County
settlers as CANADA, CANIDA, CANADY OR CANNADY] . David "Dave" Stephenson
Kennedy b 1796 TN had bought land in both Franklin & Marion Co AL; his
handing was abt Oct 1, 1862 so would have been fresh for the OR recording in
Jan 1863. Dave's sons Wm S. & James J. were in 1st Ala Cav; son George W.
joined the 3rd OH Cav. His son David C. b 1845 is not known to be a soldier.
