James D. Altman is the son of Thomas Altman, who married Elizabeth Dozier; had three sons and two
daughters; the sons were William, John and James D. Altman. William and John both died in the war;
one of disease the other from wounds received - he died at home. James D Altman was also in the war,
in Captains Crawford's company. Thomas Altman had three brothers, Stephen, William and Jack. Stephen
lived on "Big Sister" Bay, five miles east of Marion; was a quiet and inoffensive citizen; he married a
daughter of Rev. Moses Coleman, and raised some family, don't know how many - one son, Preston, and one
daughter and perhaps other children. Of old William and Jack Altman and their families, the writer knows
nothing; James D marred a daughter of Samuel Harrel, they have twelve children, all
daughters, but three.
