Re: "Sipsey Independents" - 41st Alabama Regt.
I am the school teacher (retired). I, too, have found information to indicate that Marion, Alex and Rasmus were cousins of my Madison. Their father John Coleman Cabaniss was supposedly a brother of Peter Randolph's. I, too, have searched Dunn's Creek cemetery for Catherine to no avail. In 1860 Madison and Emeline Cabaniss (and Alexander) moved to Marion County and then down/over to Pickens County. In the 1870 census Madison's last name is badly misspelled as Covines or Cavines. Since Catherine had been living with Alexander in 1860, and she isn't living with them in 1870, she could have died either in Marion or Pickens Co between 1860 and 1870 and be buried there. I'll keep you posted on any new information. I pick this up sporadically and have a bit more time now that I'm retired from full time school work. My Green information is a bit sketchy as my great great grandfather Samuel died when his children were small and his widow (Miranda Cabaniss Green) married William Lynn. Sydney Jane Green was my paternal grandmother's mother. Does anyone have information as to why Peter Randolph died in Mississippi?
