Hi Carl -
I am VERY interested about learning more re Aleck Chilton. Do you know if his family (or he) lived in the SE Iron County area (Union Township, near Brunot) by any chance???
My gg-grandpa Wm. Carroll Byrd lived in that area and had some Chilton neighbors. I have been trying for years to determine if Wm. C. might have run/interacted with Southern Partisans there in Missouri.
Wm. C. and his family packed up after selling their land in March 1863 and eventually ended up in NW Randolph County, Arkansas (near Ring, along Jane's Creek).
thanks for your postings,
