      By the way, TWO of my great grandfathers served in Capt. Young's nitre company. They were James Alexander Gayle and Nicholas B. Broadway.

      Hi Doug, my 3rd great grandfather was a guard under Capt. Young. Calvin Walker Mccutchen he was killed at Coffee Town in 1863, just a few miles from home.  Would love to share. I could not get your email to work. Feel free to call me at 503-639-4381.  Roger

      My gg grandfather, Capt. James Harvey Young commanded a group of soldiers
      that acted as guards for the mining operation at Sauta Cave; as well as a
      cave in DeKalb County. Included in this group was a sixteen ? year old named

      William T. Bennett; however I failed to find him listed on the roster I
      have. He was the gg uncle of my daughter-in-law Teresa Bennett Parker of
      Gurley, AL. Perhaps you can give me some guidance on my inquiry, for another
      source of reference. Bennett was one of the last CSA veterans in the state,
      and also served with

      M.E. Johnson's cavalry unit. Thanks for any help.
