I am trying to research an ancestor of mine. His name was John Walters Harper. He was enlisted as JW Harper. I believe he was living with an Uncle at the time of the Civil war broke out somewhere in Hardeman County. Possible in Toone TN. His family was from Indiana, but John was working at his uncles farm. He served with the TN 15th infantry.
If anyone has any info they can share with me that would be great!
I have been a civil war buff my whole life ( 14 years).
I would like to honor my ancester by writing a book about him
