Re: Arsenal Info.
Thanks Stan. I've seen that site and that's the one that really threw me for a loop. I thought his being the one to surrender the Charleston Arsenal was pretty impressive. Seems he did a lot more later. Sadly, he and his wife buried 3 of their children while in Georgia. In the Humphrey's plot at St Michael's Cemetery in Pensacola there is a memorial marker for them. That whole family has some truly interesting ties. They were original holders and settlers in the Massachussetts Bay Company. Had a part in the Salem Witch Trials and F.C.'s Dad was the Indian Agent to the Seminole. I'm trying to get this information worked up so I can present it to the local SCV chapter to see if we can get a CSA marker and flag for F.C.'s grave. After the war, he was Mayor, Tax Collector and Post Master here. His CW antics have been overlooked. I believe it's time to fix that.
My husbands Grandmother was F.C.'s granddaughter.
I have a GGUncle (a Craft from Georgia) who was at the Colombus Arsenal and the one in Americus when Humphrey's was there.
