Seeking information on John Estes shown on the 1860 Dekalb Co. census residing in the Dry Creek area with James
Eastis 68, Charlotte (Mangum) Eastis 68, Mary 27, Simpson 25, Thomas 21, John 12, and Andrew 4 mo.
We believe this John to be my husband's GGGgrandfather, and we have a copy of John's enlistment papers which indicates that he enlisted for the union in 1864, but I recently came across a roster of the men of Allison's Cavalry (Confederates) which lists Thomas Estes and J.C. Estes.
In the Veterans census of 1890, both Thomas Estes and John Estes indicated that they fought under the 5th Tennessee Cavalry (Union).
I know the census is notorious for mistakes, but his birthyear is in question. In the 1860 census, John was 12, on his enlistment papers of 1864, he said he was 18 (which makes him 14 in 1860) and his tombstone says he was born in 1841 (which makes him 19 in 1860).
Anybody with any information on the above, please contact me.

Vassey before her death in the early 1960s and Henry was long gone by then. Can't seem to find any family members
