Interesting that my GGGrandfather John P. Garner lived next door to a Robert Pilkenton in Pike County in the 1860 census. Pilkenton and his family was on the copy I made of that census sheet and I noticed the Pilkenton name again while reviewing a partial muster list of the Confederate unit GA13INF, Co. A, of Pike County. John P. Garner was in the same unit. The website of Georgia Volunteer Infantry Rosters showed James H. C. Pilkenton, GA13INF, who enlisted as a private on July 8, 1861. He was killed in action at Whitemarsh Island, GA on April 16, 1862. In the 1860 census James is shown as Robert Pilkenton's son, 14 years old. He died in battle at a very young age.
