          They just placed it the first of this month. It will be well maintained, though. No worries there.

              Here is a quick one:

              I dont have any specifics on any of the fighting that may have taken place. Basically what I have is his enlistment papers, payroll, etc.
              Archelous Jacob Hammons; Born 1833 in Kentucky. Married to Manerva England with whom he had several children. Enlisted in the Confederate service in October 1862 in Whitesburg, Letcher County, Kentucky.
              Elected Captain, he served under Benjamin Caudill. I believe that the two families were connected. If Im not mistaken, John Hunt Morgan's family is related here also.
              Serving until his wife's death ca. late 1864, he was given a discharge to take care of the children. His other relatives had basically 'disowned' him because he fought for the Confederacy while they were Unionists.
              To get away from things in Kentucky, he moved with his late wife's family into southern West Virginia where he met and married Olivia Roberts. They also had several children, one of which was named Robert Lee Hammons.
              The family moved as far away from 'civilization' as they could. They made their home in Webster/Pocahontas/Nicholas/and finally Greenbrier County, WV.
              By the time of his death in 1906....(the stone says 1908, but this was taken from a land deed; actually died in 1906) he had accumulated quite a bit of land that he farmed.
              Upon his death, his property fell to my great grandfather Andrew Doc Hammons. The property is now owned by the Hollandsworth family in Alabama.

              I wish, and hope, to find more on the activities that he was involved in.
