Not according to University of Alabama 1860 map of the State of Alabama. The county seat of Cherokee was "Center" and was since the 1840s. Now Gadsden was in Cherokee in 1860 but it was NOT the county seat. You may as well say St. Clair, Calhoun, De Kalb Counties too, since at that time Gadsden was about a 15 minute horse-ride from all three of those counties.
"Oklahoma Sherriff Edward R. Young from Coosa County served in the 18th Alabama with his six brothers and later in Wheeler's Cavalry."
Written off-the-cuff and flawed, however, his story is from a direct relative and records are only as good as the person reading them; who most likely does not share the knowledge of the original writer of said records, or the context of how they were wrote, or or intimate knowledge of details not in record. Being that we are 150 years removed from that period, muster rolls and copies of old records cannot be the only source of a person's life history.
Military records are flawed, terribly so.
It is interesting that you did not share the information on his father in your details on Sherriff Young. But, you said, "you withheld it". How much more information is withheld by historians just to make a useless point?
