The correct name to the Anniston Star letter was Bailey George McClelen, My g. grandfather.
It would be safe to say that a letter to the editor of The Anniston Star stating your wish to contact a member of that family will bring results. If BGMc knew him that well, then the Owens were from nearby Alexandria Valley. You might mention the CSA connection along with knowing Bailey George McClelen. Write the: Anniston Star c/0 Letter to Editor Dept. 216 West 10th Street Anniston, Alabama36201
