Note by Jerry Dagenhart:
My two great Grandfathers were so close in this photo they could have held hands. They were neighbors at the time as Noah Bowman was living at The Lavinia Young Farm
adjoining the Dagenhart farm during this era.

Permission for John Dison to accompany W F Reid home for burial.
John Dison letter

Horse John Dison was in the cavalry with his half brother Waitsel Avery Dison, his Pennell Cousins, and his brother-in-laws, the Reids; all sons of Thomas and Huldah Moriah Talley Reid and     
brothers to Judy Betsy Reid Dyson. John was granted several furloughs to do Horse duty and this letter granted him permission to accompany the fallen body of his brother-in-law William F Reid
home to NC for burial. He was buried at the Reid Graveyard located on what is now Chest Nut Hunt Club. The Cemetery was in recent years called the Pusser Graveyard but was started by my
Ancestor Jesse Reid and it was on his plantation in the foot hills above Dover Church. John Dison's saddle bags and all his dispatchs and letters burned in a housefire many years ago.                   
(Dison and Dyson are the same name; also spelled Dicen)
