Thanks for you response. As I mentioned Eli John was my great grandfather. His first wife was Rebecca Caroline Isbell, and they had two children, my grandfather Robert Early and William Paul. Rebecca died at age 28 in 1878, and Eli John married Louisa Jane in 1879. They had two daughters that I know of, Nettie Cleveland Doughty, and Lillian Cleveland Horton. I never knew either of them.
I do have a picture of Eli John'smgrave marker in McGregor cemetery. He came to Grimes County, Tx in the 1870's. After his first wife died and he married Louisa they moved to the McGregor area of TX. You mentioned the Civil War. According towhat I have been able to turn up, He served with Company E of the 4th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry from 1861 until the end of the war. I do have quite a lot of information on my Cleveland line going back to England. Would be happy to viosit more at a later date if you wish to.
