States: Alabama: Tallapoosa
I found Elam in Co. K, 47th Ala and Wiley in Co. F, 47th (died of wound in 1864). I did not find anything on Allen D. W. Sanders in the index but given the date of his death and his age I have little doubt that he was a casualty of the war. I have documented 849 war dead from Tallapoosa County but have no doubt that there were more, just no records survived to verify them. There was, however another Wiley Sanders in Co. A, "Tallapoosa Rifles", 1st Alabama Inf who died of sickness while a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas, Ill May 25, 1862.
