I have just found out recently that my GGG Grandfather Storax Shundy Spain was a soldier with the 1st Alabama Calvary.
He was mustered in at Glendale, MS for 1 year of service. According to his record there was some mistake and he was listed as absent without leave and a LT. Geo. W. Emerick wrote a letter to explain his absence. I am sending you a group sheet on his family..
