In Response To: Re: Joel A McPherson ()

According to some recently aquired info leading me to Lorenzo Dow McPherson and wife Rebecca Savage. Lorenzo Dow McPherson contributed 5 sons to the Confederacy, and 2 died for the cause.
The sons were:William W.,Joel A., James S., George R., and John T. These folks found together in the 1850 Lowndes Co MS census (William must have already established his own home as he was not with family in 1850)This family migrated to Wayne Co in 1860.I have not done any documenting of this info yet but it has some of my documented facts concerning who this Joel A McPherson Married Amy Moody so I feel like this info will prove correct. According to the info about Lorenzo Dow Mc Pherson, this joel A McPherson was born in 1829. this would make his the right age for my guy, who left 4 children to go to war, He surely could not have been 16 years old. Hence my problem in my original question? Have not been able after 10 year+ looking to place Joel A McPherson and Amy Moody together on a census. I am confident the were married by 1860 and in Wayne Co by then.There are several Lorenzo Dow McPherson's, this one came from born 1806 SC, to tuscaloosa Al by 1840, then across the state line to Lowndeds Co.
Ms by 1850 and finally to Wayne Co. Ms in 1860 and died 9/01/1876 in Wayne Co MS
Can the Joel A Mcpherson of the 37th MS Company C, who died in service be my guy born in 1829? and not a 16 year old??????????Amy Moody McPherson died before the 1880 Census so would have not gotten a widoe benefits. 3 of her children were with her brother James A. Moody and the 4th Jane Elizabeth was married. Jane is MY link to this family.
Thanks for reading,
