It is interesting that every website I've looked at has Seaborn's death date as 1864, dying in action at The Battle of Franklin in Tennessee during the Civil War. Seaborn R.is my gg grandfather. He joined the CSA military in May of 1861, and he was honorably discharged in November of 1861 due to ill health. He was 51 years old, and in Company G. A copy of his original military documents are in front of my eyes. He died about 1867 in Alabama and never went into any battle. His death date, and military service is being confused with that of his much young nephew, Seaborn H. Brooks who was in Company E of the same Regiment, and was killed at Franklin. Bad information keeps getting passed on, and all around until it becomes the Gospel truth. Please look up original historical records.
It is also interesting that every websight I've looked at list all the children of Seaborn and Rebecca.No one has noticed that most all of the children were born before they were married on May 28, 1847 in Georgia. Some have noticed that two daughters, Lydia and Laura are his daughters with his Martha P. Gilmore, his 2nd wife.
Mary Brooks, the daughter of Seaborn and Rebecca is my great Grandmother, born in 1849 and died in 1917.She is buried at Sandfield Cemetery in Pike County, Alabama. She married William Gates.
