I have been researching GBB Clitherall for some time. Clitherall's obituary (The Daily Register, Mobile,October 22, 1890) stated he was a founding member of the Mobile Rifle Company. It further stated that Clitherall served in the Creek War and Mexican War with this command. He was made a Major during the Mexican War. The obituary further stated, "As the oldest living honorary member of Mobile Rifle Company and regarded as the 'father of that organization.' Also,the Major took part in making the great Military Drill of 1883 (celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Mobile Rifle Company) a success.
Clitherall served as a Land agent in Minnesota for a short time until 1860 at which time he returned to Alabama. His brother Alexander was prominent in the administration of the CSA and served as private secretary to Jefferson Davis.
Are there any readers that can direct me to history or historians of the Mobile Rifle Company and maybe George BB Clitherall?
