My great-grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Elam, 4/26/1834-2/21/1900, was CSA. He's buried at Pleasant Mound Cemetery in Dallas. His grave stone has the following on it:
4 CPL 13 BRIG SCYENE CO
CONFEDERATE STATES ARMY
I already know where Scyene is/was, but can't seem to find any other info or documents relating to his particular unit and times of service. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks PS He settled in the Dallas area in 1845 along with his father, Isaac Elam, and Grandfather Jesse Elam. My grandfather, Guy Elam, and father, Hugh Allen Elam were both born in Elam Station TX.
