I had heard about a John M Kavanaugh serving in the Civil War, but I had figured he was too old for it to have been him.Are you sure it's him?
Info on Lucy Ann Kavanaugh Draper (my great, great grandmother) comes from the family Bible as well as other family info that has been passed on.I have a picture of her and her living adult children taken sometime around 1895.
Born April 10, 1831 near Salem, Franklin County TN. Married James Ward Draper of Chestnut Mound, Smith County TN, March 15, 1855, in Fayetteville TN. Lived on Draper farm on Dillards Creek Rd. down the hill from Chestnut Mound. Died Jan 20, 1905 at the home of her daughter Fannie White (my great grandmother) in Willette, TN. Buried in the Draper cemetery across the road from the house, down the hill from Chestnut Mound.
I also have pictures of various markers in the cemetery where John Miller Kavanaugh's wife Samiramis (another spelling) is buried, including her tombstone.
I also have pictures of John Miller Kavanaugh's mother Elizabeth Miller's grave and a few of her children's graves at the Paint Lick Cemetery in Garrard County, KY.If you are interested in copies of any of these pictures, e-mail me with the address I should send them to.
