    Notes 
    • Art McLemore of Aledo recalls that his grandfather, Thomas,"told me when he was a child he remembered the Yankees coming through Alabama and taking his grandfathers shoes." Thomas also told his grandson, Arthur, that he had been born in 1857 in "Scottsburg, Alabama." He listed his brothers as John, Henery, and Will, and sisters as Jane, Sarah, Nancy and Hattie. He said his father was John McLemore, or Knoxville, Tennessee, and his grandfather Henery McLemore, "originally from Ireland." Art also shows his grandfathers middle name as Dickerson, not Dickeson, as shown on his death certificate below.
