I am a river guide in north Florida. One of the 30 rivers on which I lead trips is the Ocklawaha. In a quiet, remote clearing, on a high bluf overlooking the river, there is a single grave. The name on it is Fillyaw. The date of death was in the 1870's. The stone states that he was a Confederate soldier attatched to a Georgia regiment. Also engraved on the stone is the name of his 15 year old son who buried him. At the bottom, apparently etched in the stone at a later date, are the names of several other family members.
I'm leading a tour of the Ocklawaha this Friday, and would be glad to make note of the names and dates on the marker. If this sounds like it might be a relative, you can write me and I'll give you specifics.
If you're ever in the north Florida area, I'd be glad to lead you out to this remote site (you can only get there by river, so you'd need to canoe or kayak).
I'm a published author of local history and am compiling information on the Ocklawaha. I'd be very interested in any information you might have concerning this grave and these Fillyaws.
It would be best to contact me directly at - firstname.lastname@example.org
