      • 3i. Robert M. CRUMPLER
        NOTE: Now here we have a puzzle. According to the Census figures, Marlin's son, Robert M., would have been born in 1882. However, the Robert M. who married Ouida JACKS was born 19 July 1880 in Haw Ridge according to grave marker, d. 10 October 1940, bur. Ebenezer Cemetery, Dale County. Are these two Roberts the same man? It is possible that this Robert M. Crumpler may be the son of one of Marlin's brothers.

    Transcript of a letter of James L. Brown:

    The State of Alabama, Coffee County, of the Confederate States of America
    To His Excellency Jefferson Davis, President
    The petition of James L. Brown, a citizen of said county, Respectfully showeth unto your Excellency that he is a conscript between the ages of 18 and 45 years, that he has a wife and five children, all girls, the oldest about twelve years old, all dependent upon him for support. That he has twelve negroes, and out of that number only four hands, that there is no person to attend to his business but hismelf, and that he has tried to get some person to do so, but has failed entirely. He further states that he is in the habit of making a surplus of provisions every year and that he will use all due diligence to do so in future, and that he pledges himself, and is willing to bind himself to dispose of the same to the Government or to the families of soldiers at the prices fixed by the Commissioners of the State under the Impressment Act. He further states that he has charge of the family and farm of GRIFFIN CRUMPLER, who is in the military service of the Confederate States, that said Crumpler also has a Son in said service, that he also has a wife and seven children, the oldest of said children about 12 or 13 years of age, and also five negroes, two of them hands, all in the care of petitioner, and no other male person to take care of them. He further represents unto your Excellency that if he has to leave his home and go into the active service of his country, his own family together with Mr. Crumpler's will be bound to suffer, as there are but very few men left in the County, and none to the care of those families, besides the soldiers' families generally who live near him would be deprived of the surplus which he is in the habit of making, and which he expects to make in future. He further represents that he does not make this appeal to evade the service of his Country but believes that Equity, Justice and Necessity require that he should be detailed and exempted under a recent act of Congress, entitled "An Act to Exempt Certain Persons Therein Named, Wherein Necessity Requires and Equity & Justice Demand It." He further represents that he is now and has always been since the present struggle for Independence, loyal to the Confederate Government, the laws and Constitution thereof, and as a loyal citizen he will ever pray to be.
    James L. Brown, 4 day of May AD 1864
