If anyone has anything to add about Uncle Dan, please comment. I found myself wanting to know more and more the deeper I tried to delve… He was 5' 8" tall, had light skin, light hair, and blue eyes. His name was Daniel G. Brogden. He was born 1841 in Gwinnett County, Georgia to Hope J. and Emily Brogdon. One of at least 13 children born to the couple. Based solely on census records , Daniel G. appears to have started life just like most who were born the son of a farmer – attending school when he could, and working the land as soon as he was able. When Daniel was 20 years old, he – along with his uncle Noah Richard and brother Shadrach G. – joined the Gwinnett Beauregards, Company A of the 42nd Georgia Infantry Regiment, C.S.A. Less than two months in, toward the end of April 1862, Dan was at a hospital in Knoxville, TN. Another short two months pass and Dan's uncle Noah was dead at Cumberland Gap. Daniel G. Brogdon was captured as a prisoner of war twice.
