Born Family Research
I am researching John T. Born.

John T. Born served in the same Company D. 9th Georgia Battalion of Artillery as this William Jasper Born.

W.J. Born appeared as John T. Born's witness for a Confederate pension and stated that he knew him his entire life.

Does anyone have information on John T. Born? What relation was John to William?

Any help would be very much appreciated. There is very little information on this family available via the internet.
