history was passed on to Hazel (Mrs. Clifford) Turner by her
father-in-law Sherman Turner, who was a close neighbor to Mr.
Wyreman. The most of the Wyreman family died about 1906 and were
buried in the Wyreman Cemetery. James Wyreman was born in 1837 and
Mr. Turner said
that he should have seen that Mr. Wyreman got his proper marker
since that he fought in the Civil War but he just put it off. Mrs.
Hazel Turner said that this really bothered her because that she was
a patriotic person and that he at least should have a marker. She
said that her father-in-law died without seeing this happen and she
hoped she could see Mr. Wyreman get the respect that he deserved
before she died.
Based on the
information given, research was done and found that James was a
Private in the 2nd Regiment, Tennessee Infantry of the Union
Infantry during the Civil War. He participated in the Battle of
Rogersville at Big Creek in Hawkins, Co. Tennessee. James Wyreman is
buried in the family cemetery located along side of Powell River
about 2.5 miles down stream of Powell River Bridge.
