My GG grandfather, Pvt. John Glen Neal (went by Glen) was killed Dec. 1, 1864 in Franklin….like so many others. He was in the Mississippi Vols in the 43rd regiment, company D, and he enlisted on 4/25/1862.
He was a farmer and left 7? children at home. My mother said when he was killed, his wife, Leanna Hill Moore Neal worked their children to death to keep the family farm..which they did. She never did marry again. Glen came from Bellefontaine, Webster County, Ms. and he was a private.
