I have a copy of a record from the Civil War National Archives Records that indicates James Edward Stinnett who was married to Eliza Hays (Tennessee) died near New Haven in White County. New Haven today is in Gallatin County. I am not sure of the explanation of White County but I believe there were many Hays in White County. He was discharged from the Civil War 9/10/1865 and died 5/2/1873. I believe he may have gone home to his wife's inlaws (Hays)to die. Please feel free to contact me at if you have knowledge or information.
