1905 Confederates Picnic

UPDATE: A note from Craig Harris Kisabeth of Dandridge, Jefferson Co., TN, tells us that his great grand Uncle John G. Rowe is the 5th from the left on the front row. He served in the 11th Texas Infantry, Co. F and he was a private. Craig has his confederate pension application that was approved on July 9, 1900 in Longview, Gregg Co., TX. According to census records, he was a grocer in Longview before his death on December 16, 1922. He died at the home of his son Eddie L. Rowe in McLennan Co., TX and was buried in Gregg Co., TX. If you know where he was buried, please contact Craig, Sharon or Elaine.
