Biography

Son of James Stills and Mary Shockley. There seems to be no consensus on where James and his parents were born. I have seen records that list Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. This needs to be researched.

Private, Company B, 60 Tennessee Mounted Infantry (Crawford's Regiment, 79th Tennessee Infantry, CSA)
