HALE, A. W. (Private, Company L, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) Anthony White Hale was born in Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama in 1842.  He was killed on 3 May 1863 during the battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia.  His burial location is unknown.  His body was found by his brother Samuel Quarles Hale, Jr., who was also in Company L of the 6th Alabama.

Anthony was the son of Samuel Quarles Hale, Sr. born 29 June 1806 in Hanover County, Virginia, died 18 July Notasulga, Macon County, Alabama and Eliza Margaret (White) Hale born 29 September 1836, Sumter County, South Carolina, died 2 October 1860, Notasulga, Alabama.  Samuel and Eliza Margaret Hale are buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Montgomery, Alabama.

Anthony was raised in Montgomery, Alabama where his father was one of the first aldermen and later during the 1840’s was Sheriff of Montgomery County.  The family moved to Notasulga, Alabama in Macon County in 1851.  He was the youngest of 3 sons who grew to manhood.  His brother Samuel in a newspaper article written in 1909 indicates that by age 6 Anthony was a prodigy in mathematics and a master at backgammon by age 8.  He graduated from Oglethorpe College, Midway, GA.  He was never married. 

From his father’s family he descends from one of the original settlers of Newbury, MA, Thomas Hale, who arrived from England in 1637.  His mother’s family descends from the Whites of South Carolina.  She was related to Gen. Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox of the American Revolution.

HALE, Samuel Q. (Corporal, Company L, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) Samuel Quarles Hale, Jr. was born 1 August 1840, Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama.  He died in November 1916 in Birmingham, Alabama and is buried in Elmwood Cemetery there.  He was the son of Samuel Quarles Hale, Sr., born 29 June 1806, Hanover County, Virginia; died 18 July 1883 Notasulga, Macon County, Alabama , and Eliza Margaret (White) Hale born 29 September, Sumter County, South Carolina; died 2 October 1860, Notasulga, Macon County, Alabama.  Both Samuel, Sr. and Eliza Margaret are buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama.

Samuel Quarles Hale, Jr. was 5 ft.-10 inches tall, with a light complexion, light hair and hazel eyes.  He enlisted at Loachapoka, Lee County, Alabama which was near his home of Notasulga on 26 August 1861 for a period of 12 months.  He served until the end of the War, however.  His name appears on the muster roll for (Old) Company B and later as Corporal in the (New) Company L, 6th Regiment as well as on various clothing receipt rolls and medical rolls throughout the years 1861 to 1865.  He was wounded in the jaw, admitted to the General Hospital at Camp Winder, Richmond Virginia on 1 June 1862 and returned to duty 11 days later.  He was captured at Petersburg Virginia on 2 April 1865, taken to City Point, Virginia, arriving there on 4 April.  On 13 June 1865, he swore an Oath of Allegiance to the United States and was released at Point Lookout, Maryland. 

Anthony White Hale, his youngest brother served in Company  L, 6th Alabama Regiment also.  He was killed at Chancellorsville, Virginia.  His older brother discovered his body on the battlefield.

Samuel Quarles Hale, Jr. married twice.  His first wife died in childbirth before the War began.  He married second on 7 May 1868 in Montgomery, Alabama, Josephine Postell Buchanan, the sweetheart of his deceased brother Anthony.  Josephine died on 1 January 1911 in Birmingham, Alabama and is probably buried at Elmwood Cemetery also.  Samuel and Josephine had 11 children: Anthony White Hale, b. 1871, Montgomery County, Alabama ; Charlotte M. Hale b. July 1873; Sarah M. Hale b. May 1875; Zaide Hale; Samuel  Hale b. Feb 1877; Marvin Hale b. 1878; Margy Hale b. 1880; Eula Belle Hale b. May 188l; Rebecca Cook Hale b. March 1884; Carrie Gordon Hale b. 5 July 1886, Tuskegee, Alabama ; and Joseph Winston Hale b. April 1888. 

Samuel possessed a talent for writing, a gift passed to some of his descendants.  In 1909 he wrote a series of 5 articles on his recollections of life in Montgomery  when he was a child in the 1840’s and 1850’s.  These appeared in the columns of The Montgomery Advertiser.

Samuel Quarles Hale, Jr. was descended from Thomas Hale of Watton on Stone, County Hertford, England who along with his wife were in the first group of settlers in Newbury, MA in 1637.  His lineage includes many patriots of the American Revolution.

McGEHEE, Jabus (Corporal, Company L 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) Fabian Everett "Jabe or Jabus" McGehee was born about 1836 as some sources have it in Ruckenville Georgia but believed to be a mistranslation and should be Hawkinsville, Georgia.  Jabe married November 9, 1856 in Perry, Houston County Georgia to Sarah Frances Cofield.

Jabe was a 25 year-old artist, five feet, nine inches tall, fair complexion, black eyes, and by occupation a painter when he enlisted in Macon County Alabama as a 3rd Corporal. Serving under Captain William Rowe's command, he was wounded at Seven Pines, May 31, 1862, the injury taking his arm. He was discharged from service while in Seabrook Hospital at Richmond, Virginia on July 19, 1862. He appears in later pension applications as a photographer, art no longer an option for him as a result of his wound. After his service, he siphoned his substantial creative energies into his photography studio in Opalika, Lee County Alabama. Their daughter Frances Beatrice McGehee was a small girl when her father served. It is through her line coming down to my mother that I am proud to claim this GG grandfather.  Cynthia Swope Alfonsa@aol.com

SHIPMAN, William H. H. (Corporal, Company L, 6th Alabama Infantry) Surrendered at Appomattox

SLAUGHTER, William R. M. (Sr. 2nd Lieutenant, Company L 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment) William Rhadamanthus Montgomery Slaughter was a son of John Robbin Slaughter and Temperance Harris Slaughter. He was known as Rhaddie. He was born in Tallapoosa County, Alabama on November 24, 1840. He was born shortly after the Presidential Campaign of 1840, and his parents discussed naming him William Henry Harrison Slaughter, but also being fond of a Presbyterian minister by the name of Rhadamanthus Montgomery, who had just died, the parents compromised by naming him after both the President-elect and the deceased minister. His brothers and sisters were: (1) John Nichleson Slaughter, born November 4, 1828; (2) Hannah Elizabeth Slaughter, born April 16, 1830; died July 31, 1837. (3) Myles Matthew Slaughter, born September 22, 1832; died January 4, 1905. (4) Martha Emily Frances Slaughter, born September 8, 1838; died April 3, 1843; (5) William Rhadamanthus Montgomery Slaughter, born November 24, 1840, died October 18, 1898; (6) Richard Ross Slaughter, born July 6, 1845; died November 15, 1908.

William graduated from Oglethorpe University, in Atlanta, Georgia. When the Civil War commenced, he immediately joined the Confederate Army and was attached to the Sixth Alabama Infantry Regiment, Company L. He became a Lieutenant, but was called Captain by all his acquaintances.

Rhaddie Slaughter and Elizabeth Josephine Pearson were married in Tallapoosa County, Alabama on October 26, 1865. Rhaddie Slaughter was a schoolteacher. He and his wife came to Texas in February 1870. They were intending to go to Collin County for a visit, but stopped in Titus County to visit McKenzie (Mack) Harris, who was his first cousin. He lived in the Bridges Chapel community. During their visit with the Harris family, it was made known that he was a teacher and a teacher being needed at Greenhill, he was offered the place and it was accepted. He and his wife became Titus County citizens for the remainder of their lives. In a diary kept by Elizabeth Josephine Pearson Slaughter, this entry was made on December 5, 1870:

“By the time we had eat breakfast, Cousin Mack came in his wagon, he said he had come after us to go to his house to stay 2 weeks. So my children and I went. Rhaddie started to Perry-man Black’s to buy the Grigsby place, but he met him at Suggs Store and bought the place--he gave $800.00 in cash and $500.00 cash next March.”

The diary entries for the next two weeks show Mrs. Slaughter very busy in getting ready to move in the home, and among things that she did was to “tear up shucks” to make three mattresses. The diary for December 23, 1870 says:

“A very bitter cold day - Mr. Hall takes the rest of my baggage and I and the children on Nellie Gray (the horse), Rhaddie in the waggon, and we move to our new home."

This house was built in 1855 by a man by the name of Horn. Abner Grigsby bought it from Horn and he sold it, along with 300 acres of land, to Rhaddie Slaughter. It is a log house, but planking has been placed over the logs. The Slaughters lived there and raised the family. This house still stands and is in excellent condition. The house and 200 acres of land are owned by Zenobia Slaughter Lide, a daughter of Rhaddie Slaughter, and 100 acres by Bob Conroy, a grandson. In some way a story was started many years ago that there was gold buried around the old house, and this has caused much digging, but no gold. This house is about one mile North of Greenhill, in Titus County. The Slaughter children were: (1) Alfred Warren Slaughter, who married Gussie Akridge; (2) Annie Caroline, who married John Gilpin. They had one child, a girl, named Thalia, who married a Conroy, and these are Bob Conroy’s parents; (3) Pearson Slaughter, who married Bessie Read. He was a Presbyterian minister; (4) Rhaddie, Jr., who died at 4; (5) Bessie Tempie, who married T. B. Caldwell, Sr.; and (6) Zenobia, who married Dean Lide.

Captain Rhaddie Slaughter was Tax Assessor of Titus County about 1888. He taught school at Greenhill, Mt. Pleasant, Chapel Hill and Hickory Hill, in Titus County and for a while in Hopkins County. For a while he owned a country store in Greenhill, and was Postmaster there. He died on October 18, 1898, and his wife died on January 5, 1899.

On Feb. 5, 2003, James D. Allen, creator of this website passed away
There is no doubt that he would want the work on the
6th Alabama Infantry to go on.
With that in mind, this site is dedicated to him.
We miss you, Jimmy.
