  • Notes 
    • 1850 Cherokee County GA census I know Barksdale served as a private in Capt. Scoggin's Battery, (Griffin L. Artillery), Georgia Light Artillery, and that he was killed during the Battle of Tanner's Ferry near Resaca, GA. Lay's or Tanner's Ferry was a crossing on the Oostanaula River, I've been told on a road that no longer exists. This battle took place on May 14th and 15th, after the 13th's Battle of Resaca. Gen. Johnston, who is a great uncle by marriage, had withdrawn from Dalton to Resaca after he was outflanked by the Federal Army moving along Snake Creek Gap, which was NW of Resaca. Johnston's men were on the high ground in the hills northwest of the town, and stood against repeated charges on the 14th and 15th, but then the Federals took charge of the river crossing at Lay's or Tanner's Ferry, so Johnston withdrew south to Calhoun. The Battle of Resaca was the first major battle in the campaign that ended with the Battle of Atlanta. Another of my ancestors, and I can't remember which one right now, was reading a letter to his grandson sitting on the porch of their house there near the battle when a stray bullet hit and killed him during the Battle of Resaca. -- Laurie L.
