ANN, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PROMPT REPLY! NEXT TIME I WILL TRY TO INCLUDE DATES.

I THOUGHT AFTER I POSTED THE FIRST ONE, THAT I HAVE ANOTHER STRIBLING IN MY FAMILY. HE IS ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE. HIS NAME WAS ROBERT FRANKLIN STRIBLING. HE WAS IN THE 14TH (NEELEY'S) TN CAVALRY, AND DIED ABT. 1868. HIS WIFE WAS EUPHRASIA EVELIN ANDERSON (DAUGHTER OF W.T.ANDERSON AND MAHALA WISDOM). I WISH I KNEW MORE ABOUT HIS PARENTS, AND WHERE HE WAS BORN.

JOHN PATTON STRIBLING, HIS BROTHER, LIVED IN MEDON AND DIED AT AGE 103. HE ALSO WAS A CSA VETERAN, AND I HAVE READ HIS ACCOUNT OF BEING WOUNDED AND ILL 3 TIMES DURING THE WAR. HE SAID HE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO LIVE ALL 3 TIMES.

ROBERT WAS MY 2ND GREAT GRANDFATHER. THEIR DAUGHTER, LELIA STRIBLING, WROTE A DIARY IN 1871 AT AGE 15,WHILE SHE WAS ATTENDING SCHOOL IN JACKSON, TN. AT THE TIME, MOST OF THE FAMILY THAT WERE STILL LIVING WERE LIVING IN MADISON COUNTY AND MCNAIRY COUNTY, TN.

LELIA MARRIED SAM A. MITCHELL (SON OF GEORGE WASHINGTON MITCHELL AND JANE ISOM), AND THEIR DAUGHTER WAS ALLIENE MITCHELL JENKINS (MRS. LEWIS GORDON JENKINS). MY MOTHER WAS ALLIENE JENKINS CORBITT(MAY 6, 1913-MARCH 9, 1993). MY FATHER WAS JANES STITT CORBITT (JULY 2, 1908-JULY 31,1995).

IF ANYONE CAN TELL ME MORE ABOUT ROBERT FRANKLIN STRIBLING, I WOULD APRECIATE IT.
