Below Copied from various sources including Mitchell Jones and others, I am not taking credit for their work, just wanted to show their hard work for history on this line:

"In December 1863, Alexander Barclay and Ammon Dildine, of the Peeled Chestnut Community of White County, TN, were passing through Buffalo Valley on their way back to their homes in White County. They had been to Kentucky to find a place for their families to live to get away from the dangers of the Civil War in White County. While traveling through Buffalo Valley they were murdered by Confederate deserters. Ammon Dildine was killed instantly, but Alexander Barclay was badly wounded in the stomach. Barclay was taken to the Garner home and laid on a straw pallet. He lived a few days before he died of his wounds. While laying on the pallet the deserters broke into the house and were going to shoot him again but Rebecca Bartlett stopped them by telling them he was dying. Later Alexanders Barclay's wife, Elizabeth Nelson Barclay, came riding a horse and with her young son, James Otis Barclay, in her arms. She was there to find a grave for her husband.

In December 1863 Alexander Barclay and Ammon Dildine, of the Peeled Chestnut community of White County, Tennessee, were passing through Buffalo Valley on their way back to their homes in White County. They had been to Kentucky to find a place for their families to live to get away from the dangers of Civil War in White County. While traveling through Buffalo Valley they were murdered by Confederate deserters. Dildine was killed instantly, but Barclay was badly wounded in stomach, etc. Barclay was taken to the Garner home and laid on a straw pallet. He lived a few days before he died from his wounds. While laying on the pallet the deserters broke into house and were going to shoot him again but Rebecca Bartlett, a young girl, told them he is going to die and she gave him a drink of water.

Later Alexander Barclay’s wife, Elizabeth Nelson Barclay, came to Buffalo Valley riding a horse and with her young son, James Otis Barclay, in her arms. She was there to find the grave of her husband.

Several days after the shooting Union troopers under command of I believe LT. Prettyman Jones entered Buffalo Valley, and were told of the outrage. They tracked the men down and a firefight occurred and the men were killed. One of the men was Moffett Crowell who ran into a barn and was killed.

I believe that the five men who killed Barclay and Dildine were Moffet Crowell, Thomas Maxwell, Harmon Young, Gillahan, and Sullivan. Moffett Crowell was deserter from Company K 13th Confederate Cavalry. Gillahan and Sullivan were not residents of area but were probably from Smith County, Tennessee. There was a Riley and William Gillahan from Chestnut Mound area of Smith County, Tennessee, that served in Company A of 84th Regiment of Tennessee Confederate Infantry and deserted their units on 20 January 1863.

We obtained information from a several sources including Nora Jones Steele, dau of Rebecca Bartlett Jones; Freeman Ward, descendent of Barclay and Dildine; Susan Hayden, a descendent of James Otis Barclay; Allison, Judge John, Editor, "Notable Men of Tennessee", Vol I, Southern Historical Association, Atlanta, GA, 1905 has sketch on Professor R. I. Hutchings a descendent of Alexander Barclay; traditions in Crowell family. I was first told this story by Nora Jones Steele and then read an article on Crowells by Whited in which he claimed Moffett Crowell was killed and robbed of his gold by men under command of Prettyman Jones. When aspects of all the stories are compared they fit on details and time period. We do know that Dave Crowell and his gang of several people stayed in the Indian Creek area." End of their work.

Thanks to all of you who have worked so hard on this line. If not for you, I would not have found my connection to this line.
