While looking for C.B. Cagle's movements for any clues as to where his daughter was married, several items of interest were noted. You may be aware of these but here they are in chronological order:

1850/1860 Census: G.B. Cagle was enumerated in the 1850 census of Henry County, Georgia and in the 1860 census of Carroll County, Kansas District (Georgia Militia District 1152) which is in the west side of the county bordering Haralson County. Of interest here is that he declared real estate valued at $175. You can't put an exact location of this property without referring to deed records but a close neighbor in 1860 census was L.C. McCalman who owned Land Lot 248 in the 7th Land District. That places G.B Cagle about four miles due north from the center of Carrollton, Georgia.

Civil War: G.B. Cagle was a private in Company L, 7th Confederate Cavalry (Claiborne's Regiment, Partisan Rangers). This unit was raised directly by the Confederate Government so there is probably very little information available. Company L included a number of men from Carroll County including officers. The name of G.B. Cagle can be found on the National Parks Service Civil War site at Just enter his last name, then under the Union or Confederate box select Confederate, and under the State (Or Origin) box select Confederate Troops and click the Submit Query box. A service record can be ordered at There is no guarantee that it will contain useful information.

Georgia's Salt List: During the Civil War Georgia had to ration salt which was in short supply and the "Salt List" is a list of the names of people getting an annual supply of salt in September 1862, 1863, and 1864 for canning and preserving farm products. This was for wives or children with soldiers in service or deceased. One entry for Carroll County in 1863 under the category of "soldiers now in service" recorded "Orphans of G.B. Cagle" receiving salt. The wording implies that his wife was deceased.

Marriage: Green Berry Cagle to Martha Ann Kinney, 9/28/1865. Carroll County Marriage Book D page 2. (Daughter of Isaac Kenny, called "Mattie" born 9/15/1843 in Carroll County, parents lived in Flint Hill, Fairplay District, Georgia Militia District 1122, Carroll County. View the certificate at The ceremony was conducted by J.M. Muse, MG. James M. Muse was the pastor of Midway Macedonia Baptist Church in the community of Sand Hill in GMD 1122. Martha's father was a member of this church). That places G.B. Cagle in this GMD in mid-1865. This district is in the east central side of the county and borders Campbell (now Douglas) County.

Reconstruction Acts of 1867: In order that Georgia and other former Confederate States could draft new constitutions in accordance with the Reconstruction Acts, the U.S. Congress ordered the election of delegates to state constitutional conventions. In order to vote in this election males 21 years or older had to swear oaths of allegiance to the United States. These oaths, organized by voting district, have survived in most counties of the state and the oath of Green Berry Cagle made in 1868 showed that he was living and voting in the 1122 Georgia Militia District of Carroll County. This is about eight miles southeast of where G.B. Cagle lived in 1860.

1870 Census: Greenbery Cagle and Martha A. Cagle living in Polk County, Georgia with two children ages 3 and 8/12. Elizabeth living in Villa Rica, Carroll County, Georgia with her husband Bussey Tillman (3/23/1865, Marriage Book C:540), two children ages 4 and 1, and Bernie Cagle age 13. A Hattie Cagle age 18, living in Henry County, a domestic in the household of Allen Turner. A Mary Kagle, 22, living in the household of Andrew Vinson in Villa Rica.
