And well the pic here is of the colley family around 1862. Notice there is 2 John Colley's in the pic but please put your attention to the one on the left side. There is a 75% chance as this is my Great Great Great Grandpa who fought in the civil war. But the article that was with the pic on the website my friend gave me says he survived the civil war and lived till 1897 where he died of pneumonia. So taken by this account seems to make both of me uncles wrong in saying he died at Gettysburg or Chickamunga. But to add further credit to the authenticty of the pic I told me granny a few names from the pic here and she reconized a few of them,not all of them though. If the facts are correct that would make me civil war ancestor 12 years old when he was in the civil war in 1862. Another fact is from the article is that John moved to Kentucky and became a school teacher shortly before he died. He also married an elizabeth but her maiden name is unknown,she died in 1930.
I find this truly amazing that there is a high possibilty that this is my family ancestors. I am awe struck that there is photograghic proof of John Colley.
