Howdy, Lorie.Daniel Alday and Louisa Loumacia Faircloth were my GGG-GP too, so I reckon we're 8th cousins?I've visited their graves many times, as they, my GG-GP James Daniel Alday and Mary Brown, and G-GP Sidney Dillard Alday and Susan Martha Conyers along with many, many other Aldays are buried there in Spring Creek Baptist Church Cemetary in Seminole Co., GA.
Daniel and Louisa's children were Green Benjamin (5/13/1846-8/30/1932), Littlebury (born 1848), Clarissa (1849-5/4/1871), James Daniel (2/15/1852-11/16/1935), Reddin E. (born February 1855), Thomas Franklin (born January 1857), John Wesley (born January 1858), George Washington (9/13/1859-4/4/1898), Nola (born 1861), and Frederick J. (born 1862).Daniel and his oldest son, Green Benjamin were Confederate soldiers, both serving in Co F, 50th GA Volunteer Infantry Regiment.Daniel was wounded; date and place not given.Daniel enlisted on 3-4-1862, and Green Benjamin on 4-30-1863.Green Benjamin was present at Appomattox Courthouse at General Lee's unfortunate surrender.Daniel's brother Littlebury Alday was also a Confederate soldier, serving in the same Co F, 50th GA and enlisting on the same date as Daniel.He was also present at Appomattox.
For 30 years, I've known my GGGG-GP to be Benjamin Alday (1770s/Burke Co., GA-1840s/Butler Co., AL) and Rhoda (Red Berry?) (1770s/NC-1850s/Baker Co., GA) and my GGGGG-GP to be Josiah Alday (1740s/Lunenburg Co., VA and died in Burke Co., GA) and Ann Womack (born 1740s in Lunenburg Co., VA and died in Burke Co., GA).I got this information from a first cousin who was a student at Brigham Young University in the mid 70s and who was a departmental head upon his retirement last year.He had access to the world's largest genealogy library, so I took it as the truth.I reckon we can only be sure for so many generations and at some point truth changes to possible truth or wishful thinking.I'm not absolutely sure, but I'm guessing there's someone on this forum who is.Happy huntin'.
