His obituary from the 19 July 1911 issue of The LaFayette Sun, LaFayette, Alabama (courtesy of Glenda Brack):
"Death of W. B. Callahan
      The friends and acquaintances of Mr. W. B. Callahan, of East Point, Ga., will regret to know that he passed away on the morning of July 11th. He had been in feeble health for more than a year, when a second stroke of paralysis ended his life. He was born and reared in this place. Some living here remember him as a boy.
     In the war of the 60’s, when every brave southern man felt he must take part,
W. B. Callahan was not left behind; and though little more than a boy in age, he joined Co. I, 37th Ala. Reg’t. and with other brave men and boys of Chambers County, he went to the front. He faithfully did his duty to the close of the war.
      For a number of years, he has been a resident of East Point, Ga. In that place he was laid to rest. The deceased was a brother of Mrs. A. L. Robinson of this place."

Interment was in the Harmony Cemetery, and services were conducted by Dr. J. W. Rucker, pastor of the LaFayette Baptist Church, and Dr. W. B. Hope, pastor of the LaFayette Methodist Church.

"Uncle Joe Carlisle
A distinguished citizen passes into the great beyond, the word distinguished is used advisedly because of the fact he was a citizen of that type.

He was distinguished because of his war record, he was such a character because of the fact that he settled upon a small, poor, hilly farm and reared a large family (thirteen children, three dead) all of whom are respectable, honest, God-fearing men and women, honored by all who know them. He was nature's nobleman, a tiller of the soil, he made "two blades of grass to grow where only one had grown."


He was a Southern Christian gentleman, he loved his God, his church, his family and his country, what more could we say.


He joined the Baptist church at Antioch when about 34 years old and was a consistent member until his death.


He was married January 25, 1866, to Miss Maggie A. C. Etchison, and to this union were born three boys and one girl, all of whom are living. On January 3, 1874, his wife died, and March 30, 1875, he was married to Miss Louisana V. Hutchinson, who now survives him. To this union was born five boys and four girls, two boys and one girl of these are dead.


He served the entire time of the Civil War in the 37th regiment, Company I; was 2nd post sergeant, a faithful soldier true to every trust.


Had he lived until August 12th he would have been 84 years old.


He leaves to his sorrowing wife and children a rich heritage, not stocks, bonds or money, but a clean and upright life, a good name, which the good book says, is rather to be chosen than great riches.


Funeral services were held at Harmony church, conducted by Rev. J. W. Rucker, assisted by Rev. W. B. Hope.
           
Respectfully, Y. L. Burton"
According to "Survey of Cemeteries in Chambers County, Alabama" there is a tombstone in the Harmony United Methodist Church that reads: "Joseph A. Carlisle, Aug. 12, 1840 - May 18, 1924."

Carpenter, widow in care of Bird Fitzpatrick, atty, Troy AL and paid 26 July 1864; A burial identified as "Pvt Franklin Carpenter, 37th Ala Co K" in the Confederate Cemetery at San Antonio, Bexar County, TX, shows the dates: "1832-1906," and is therefore a clear contradiction of the 1862 date of death for this individual in the Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers from the State of Alabama and raises the possibility of a second man of the same/similar name serving in this company.

I had not seen them since they were at Spanish Fort, and on our way to Mobile I could see the old Fort across the bay and I thought of the grand times the boys had there, how I used to let them have the boats to go fishing and how they always remembered me with the fish, and do you remember how the boys shook with the chills?
