    Notes 
    • "John married Angeline Halbert and lived in Limestone County. John was a small man which served him well during the Civil War. One day he was with his Uncle Maclin Bass McLemore in Rogersville. Maclin was a pilot on the Shoals. The Shoals, being a treacherous body of water and rapids, took a skilled person to navigate. That fateful day John and Maclin were captured by the army. Thinking John was too young (he was 15); he was told to go home and tell his aunt what had happened to her husband.

      John in later years carried the Star Route mail in Limestone County. This mail was carried on horseback for which he received $4.00 a month. He lived in Limestone until his death on Valentine Day in 1924 when he literally dropped dead with a heart attack while walking to the store." (The Heritage of Lauderdale County, Alabama, p. 347).
