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.

I received this from another researcher a couple of years ago. He sent me a copy of a page from Captain McMath's handwritten diary that had Lt. John G. White Dying on December 25, 1861.  He also said that John was buried near the Lewis house which is at the Manassas Battlefield park.  He said the graves were probably moved later on.  I was just wondering if there was any information on this.

WOODHAM,
J. R. (Private Company G & H, 15th Alabama Infantry Regiment) James R. Woodham tombstone states born 1823; died at 81 years. His grave is marked Canty's Company, 15th Alabama that is in error; states b. 1823, which I feel is in error also; d. at age 81 which is most likely correct; from my figuring this James, brother of Samuel who had a big fist-fight down in Newton Dale County Alabama following the war due to James' alliance during the war; any rate, buried in Old Ferrill Cemetery, Jackson County, Mississippi.  Note James Canty was a Colonel and Regimental Command and later prompted to Brigadier General.
