You have found a good source of correct information about Kilgo families. The voter list were men who served for the Confederate, but may have also at some point in time served for the North? I do not have that answer. Loyal list was when they agreed to stay loyal to the Union after the War was over. The Government chose a place and time for these men to come and take the oath, they didn't always live in that county, nor was they born there, but most people take a look and think that was where they were born and lived. Many counties have changed names over the years. example, Walker, Hancock,Winston, part of these are now Cullman Co.,Al, and many lived and are listed in each county. Lots of Conferate Soldiers never shaved after they "lost" the War between the States, most wore huge beards until death. hope this helps. Hope you find all the information you need.
