1L.D. Fowler was likely an uncle of our Obadiah and Robert Lyles.
2John W. Lyles and James M. Lyles, sons of Hugh Isham and Jenny Lyles, both enlisted on the same day as our Robert Lyles did. They are almost certainly kin, though we don't yet know exactly how.
3This is our Robert Martin Lyles.
4Our Obediah Coleman Lyles enlisted in this company on March 15, 1862.
5Henry Martin Pitts is reputed to have married widow Caroline Matilda Lyles after the war
6This John Jackson Vissage is the brother of Selena Ellen Vissage and the first cousin of our Lyles boys.

1 L.D. Fowler, born about 1838, was likely a younger brother of C.C. Fowler and our Mary Fowler Lyles.
2 Coleman Carlisle Fowler, born about 1825, was likely a brother of our Mary Fowler Lyles and a son of Coleman Fowler.
3 Listed as "Louis Liles," David Lewis Liles, born about 1829, was a son of Hugh Isham Liles and Jenny Lyles.
4 This is the younger Hugh Isham Liles, born about 1822, another son of Hugh Isham and Jenny Liles. He died in 1863 from wounds suffered at Lookout Mountain, Tennessee.
5 Jonah Liles, born in 1846 as the eldest son of Joseph Liles, Jr., enlisted in 1864 and was parolled at Appomattox on April 9, 1865.
6 Joseph Liles, Jr., born in 1819 or 1820, enlisted in Nov. 1861 and was discharged in Jan. 1862 because of his asthma.
7 This William A. Liles has not been confirmed from other company records. He is not our William Albert Lyles, who enlisted in the 1st SC State Troops. If this listing is accurate, this man was a son of Levi Liles, born about 1846.
8 William B. Liles, born about 1842, was another son of Hugh Isham and Jenny Liles. He was killed in May 1864 at Spotsylvania Court House, Virginia.
