    Notes 
    • Patrica Mills writes that "John W. McLemore applied for a Confederate Pension - Alabama Pension number 13793. He enlisted as a private at Dodsonville Jackson County, Alabama in July 1863, discharged August 1865. His commander was Captain Gabbett. Witness to his application were Duffey and J. Evans. John worked at Salt Peter Cave mining Salt Peter for gun powder. In order to deprive the Confederate Army of this vital raw material. Union Soldiers attacked the workers at the cave. According to one of the Confederate Commanders, the group retreated to Big Springs in Marshall County, and later to the Warrior River in Blount County and worked for the CSA both placed. Their Commander was the Captain Baggett (or Cabbet). There are many records of work mining Salt Peter at the cave and its importance to the Confederate Army. It was carried by mule drawn wagon to Selma, Alabama where the gun powder was made and stored. The skirmish at the cave and its capture by Union forces is also recorded."

      Census records show he was born in Alabama, however, in a note dictated by his son, Thomas Dickerson McLemore, to his grandson, Arthur McLemore, in the 1950's John McLemore is shown as of "Knoxville, Tenn." Perhaps it is the grandfather, who was born ca 1850 that was of Knoxville.
