Greg Land found this article in Portraits In Conflict, by Anne J Baliey and Walter J Frasier Jr. This picture of Captain John Cornelius Curtright is taken from a copy of an ambrotype donated by Mrs Lowry W. Hunt. Captain Curtright commanded Company E of the 41st Georgia Regiment. He owned a plantation east of LaGrange, Georgia. The Captain died during the battle at Perryville, Ky on October 8, 1862.

"Family tradition maintains that Curtright's slave, Berry, found the captain's body and buried him, marking the spot with a cedar board. Berry returned to LaGrange and gave the captains sword and epauletts to Curtright's widow, Mary; the captain also left behind three small children. One of them, Antoinette, eventually married Methodist minister Warren A. Candler, wjho bedcame a prominent bishop. In 1919 Bishop Candler, speaking a the Annual Methodist Conference at Lexington, Kentucky, remarked that his father-in-law had been killed at the Battle of Perryville and buried somewhere near there. After the service a listener told Candler that he knew a person who was a child in 1862 and might have some details about the battle. The elderly man remembered a slave bringing an officer's body from the field and insisting that he have a separate grave; he also recalled the long vanished cedar marker. The grave was then part of a horse lot, but aftr some digging the men found the bones of a large man (Curtright was over six feet tall) and several Confederate uniforme buttons. Candler had the remains moved to LaGrange and p[laced beside Mary. Curtright's grandson, who had just returned from France, wore his World War I uniform while serving as a pallbearer.Captain Curtright served with the Georgia Brigade from October 10, 1862 to the surrender in North Carolina on April, 26, 1865.
