John Calvin Feland

RESEARCHER-DESCENDANTS: Information sent to T.Mason on 21 Sep 2005 by Flo Feland Grant [flo.grant@worldnet.att.net]. On 4 May 2005, Sandi Gorin [sgorin@glasgow-ky.com] wrote in the SOUTH-CENTRAL-KENTUCKY-L@rootsweb.com:

"Regarding Clear Fork Church; the Civil War had begun and it tore churches apart as well as families. In each church there would have been those who supported the Union, and those who supported the South. It wasn't safe for the members to always travel to church, remembering that many people traveled by foot, horseback or wagon for many miles and there were skirmishes going on and guerillas attacking also. So church services almost ground to a halt during the war also. In studying the stories of the battles, the soldiers did have church services at times with chaplains; and sometimes when there was no fighting gong on around them, they would go to church services. These were just boys fighting many times; they were scared just as any soldier in battle is to this day. Some of the soldiers lied about their ages and went into battle at 12 or 13 years old."
