Note: k. It is not known if he had been wounded in a battle and sent home to recover, or if he had caught pneumonia and that was the reason he was coming home. Or perhaps he was merely coming home on leave. Anyway, he could not make it all the way home before he collapsed from the pneumonia. All of the able-bodied men were away fighting the War and the only people available to help were older men who were not able to fight. A few of the older men prepared a stretcher and carried him the rest of the way home. He died shortly after reaching his home. He is buried in the Dotson Cemetery, that is located on property owned by Mr. Mathis on Whorton Creek. Some have said that the Cemetery is located on the farm owned by Joe Inman at the time of his death. He was buried by the women because there were no men available to bury him. After Joe's death, Thursa married Dock Floyd Dotson.
Note: Joe Inman was a Confederate soldier. He died in 1865-68 be he was not killed in a battle in the War. Instead he died of pneumonia. He was on his way home and had to swim a river, some say Kings River - some say Holman Creek - some say Reed's Cree
Note: He died of pneumonia.
