Can you tell me more? I am collecting short Biographies on each soldier from an Alabama unit to be displayed on the Soldier Roots pages. With each Bio, I will display the Email address of the contributor or contributors as source/contacts for other researchers. Send the following information to me, Carolyn Golowka.

Items needed for Bio, but will take anything I can get:

Some Civil War veterans eventually lived the last part of their lives in the Mountain Creek Soldiers Home in Chilton County, Alabama. A list of some of its residents from 1901 to October 1933 can be found by clicking here.

Confederate Memorial Park is located in Southeast Chilton County and is administered by the Alabama Historical Commission. Confederate Memorial Park was the site of Alabama's only Confederate veterans home (Mountain Creek Soldiers Home). The facility was in operation from 1902 to 1939 for the care of elderly veterans and their wives and widows. Of the many hundreds who resided at the facility, 313 were buried in one of the two cemeteries located at this site. Cemetery #1 is the original cemetery, and was used from 1902 to 1911, when Cemetery #2 was opened.
