In Reply to: Pvt. A. J. Files, Company D, 26th Alabama Infantry by Tod Molesworth of 381

Tod,Abner Jackson Files was born 11 14, 1822 in Walker County,Alabama.He lived about three miles from what is today the town of Holly Grove on the Fayette,Walker County line.He died 12 12 1888 in Walker County,Alabama and is buried in Files Cemetery there.If you go to this cemetery it is on top of a hill and is very well maintained and will have no problem finding his marker,it is on the first row of about 60 of the Files family.All of the property there was owned by AJs' father Manley Files.
AJ was married to Elizabeth A Brown and had 4 children.They were John Manley b1850,Mary Jane b1854,Abner J "Abb" b1861,and James Marion b1868.Hope this helps you.
