I was wondering if you can look up in your civil war books too for me. I am researching my husbands family tree. They are his gggrandfather Abraham Layne b.1798-d.1818,[i believe] in Marion county,Tennessee and his ggrandfather Andrew Jackson Layne<they called him"cove jack"> b.1840-d.1920 in Marion county,Tennessee.[story was told that Abraham Layne was hung in a tree at Burketts Chaple in Marion county,Tennessee by union solders.He is buried right there in Burketts Chaple Cemetery. What we can't seem to find much on his son Andrew Jackson Layne"cove jack" One served with the confederates and maybe the other with the unions. I would be grateful if you could help.

Thank you.Delores
