“My paternal great grandaddy rode with Bedford Forest.”
Mine, too. He was among the Louisiana troops who rode with Nathan Bedford Forrest.
Well, well well. That makes three of us. Only it was my maternal Great Grandfather. Fourth Corporal Alexander P. Bradley (1846-1932) of the 12th Mississippi Cavalry. Age 15 in 1861. And two GG uncles that are buried in the Confederate Cemetary at Brices Cross Roads. No mass grave there like at Shiloh.
