Hi Folks: My sister-in-law is a direct descendant of Elis F. Dilbeck through his son John G., through his son Clint, and through his son, Frank. I have been working on her line for several years, on and off. As her family and mine grew up in Walker county Ga., I am planning a visit to Lafayette city cemetery to photograph the gravestone of Elias F. Dilbeck. I have seen this headstone before, and it is actually a small monument. If anyone would like a copy, please let me know via this forum or to my email address. Incidentally, my direct ancestor, Ira Prince, was also captured at Vicksburg, Miss. as was Elias. I should be heading down to Walker county in the next few days. Regards, Ira Prince
