Shared note

Headstone doesn't look original. Probably placed there by descendants. States he was husband of "Darcas A. Reeves." Married a second time by 1870 to an Eliza. According to the pension application from Columbia Co., FL in 1904, her name was Eliza E. Simons. She was married to him September 24th, 1863 in Alachua Co., FL.

The pension application was approved on the witness of one soldier. From the Adjutant General's office: The name John W. Duren has not been found on the rolls, on file in this office, of the 5th Battalion Florida Cavalry, Confederate States Army, nor has any record been found of the capture or parole of a man of this name or organization.

They later found a John Durden Jr. They tried W. Duren. Couldn't find it either. They tried John Dogan. Found one - private Co. C, 2nd FL Cav.

Multiple children's death certificates say he was born in Lancaster Co., SC.
