Re: Names of Confederate Civil War Veterans
Thanks for the link to the Montgomery County Web Site. Nice followup to find Clifton's burial place. The Franklin County, Va., 1850 Census lists Clifton's age as 10, which would be consistent with an 1839 birth. The 1860 Franklin County Census transcription that I have lists Clifton's age as 17, which I now believe to be wrong. I agree with you that Clifton had quite a wartime career, but his biography also makes clear that he had a successful life postwar. I don't know who the Clifton G. Hill is from Craig County.
