Tombstone Tuesday: George W. Schwalls Sr.

George W. Schwalls, Sr.
DOB January 1, 1837 **
DOD January 21, 1908

laid to rest at Minton Chapel Advent Christian Church
Kite (Tom), Johnson County, Georgia

George was my great-great-grandfather.

** Yes, I realize the birth year listed on his headstone states 1848; however, I do not believe that to be true.  If he had been born in 1848, he would have only been 14 years old when he enlisted in the CSA... not impossible, but unlikely.  In addition, I have his pension application where he clearly states he was born in 1837.
