I am trying to locate more information about my GGGrandfather (Lafayette LAVENDER) b. 1831, Morgan Co, TN the eldest son of Elijah LAVENDER b. 1798 Jones Co NC and Mary (Polly) HENDERSON b.1805 TN. Last record I found for Lafayette was in 1860 Morgan Co. TN. It is rumored he married a (Cherokee?) woman by the name of Eliza or Elizabeth. He had 3 children Columba, Judia, S.C.(Samuel Clay). It appears he served in the Civil War under the Confederate flag and was in prison on Rock Island in 1864 . That is the last evidence I have found of him. I am the GGGranddaughter of Lafayette LAVENDER. I would like to know where Lafayette died and was buried, and what happened to his wife and the two other children Columba, and Judia?
