Re: 28th Al. Inf. Co. J
I wonder if this is E.R. Bell 1860 Janesboro (Jonesboro?) District, Jefferson County, Alabama. He is listed age 24, occupation school teacher, born in GA, Ann E. Bell , age 18, born AL.
E.R. Bell is residing next to W.J. Bell, age 27, farmer, born in GA, Melissa Bell, age 16, born in AL.
The name and age matches his ADAH card for 1862 and his enlistment is given at Jonesboro. It states his residence as Troup County, GA.....maybe that is where he was born. I didn't find an Elijah, Eli, E., or E.R. Bell in 1860 Troup County, GA.
