Swinney, James P - 15th AL inf, married to Streater

Looking for info on my gggrandfather James P Swinney, who was discharged in TN on 6/8/64 from the 15th Alabama Infantry, Co. B. I understand that he married a Streater, the will of Reddick Streater confirms this. I believe he had several children from this (his second)marriage. He was originally from S Carolina, had two sons (Darby and Edward) and a daughter - I believe his first wife died in S Carolina. Edward served with his father, was taken prisoner at Gettysburg, and died at Pt Lookout MD. Darby enlisted after turning 16 and fought to the end of the war. Afterward he moved to Texas. I understand that a family bible exists, but have not been able to track its current owner. Any info on Swinney/Streater's decended from Swinney would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Michael Sweeney
