Hamner" (as above) or as "Lovic P Hamner" (at right):
His obituary appeared in the The LaFayette Sun (LaFayette, Chambers County, Ala.) in 1912:
"Dr. Lovic P.
Hamner was born at Social Circle, Georgia, February 24, 1832, and died at his home in Stroud, May 17, 1912. He spent his early business life with WALKER & ZACHRY at Fredonia and West Point, and with JACOB'S at LaGrange. Then traveled as a salesman for a time; purchased a farm near Fredonia, Chambers County. He married Mrs. Elmira Devaughn, February 3, 1853. To this union five children were born: Mrs. J. A. Thompson of Stroud; Rev. J.W. Hamner of Alexander City; Dr. H.T. Hamner of Camp Hill; Dr. P.O. Hamner of Stroud; and Dr. W. P. Hamner of Sylacauga.

Dr. Hamner had been in failing health for 2 1/2 years and practically gave up the practice of medicine a year ago. His malady was Arterio Fibrosis...
(defined as  "A term applied to the condition of the arterial capillaries in chronic interstital disease [commonly called 'hardening of the arteries']." according to Gould, Illustrated Dictionary of Medicine, c.1901)

He read medicine in his Fredonia home for two years under the great Dr. Ridley of LaGrange, as preceptor, and obtained his medical education at the University of Nashville, Tennessee. In the spring of 1857, began an active practice. He was remarkably successful; a surgeon of great ability, but retired from this branch of his profession years ago giving as his reason, "Thus far I have been free of accident and no man had died at my hands; I want to wind up this way, so I shall do no more capital operations."

Dr. Hamner was practicing medicine at Daviston, Alabama, when the war came on, and enlisted in Co. "B" 37th AL Inf. Reg. CSA, on March 16, 1862, and was made Captain. He had been educated at
(Gibson F.) Hill's Military Academy at Fredonia in it's most flourishing days. Besides being popular with the 126 stalwart men of his company and of his home town, he was equipped and qualified for the command. After serving for a time in this way, upon petition of the men of his company to whom he had been family physician already since April, 1857, he resigned his command. Released from further service at the front, he went home as physician and protector to the mothers, sisters, and wives they had left behind. They loved him as their commander but could not be satisfied without him as physician back home.

Dr.
Hamner was a man of high sense of honor and never betrayed a trust. He was public spirited and liberal. He was a much more pious man than many knew. He was all the years the friend of the poor and the helper of the helpless. Easily he could have been wealthy but preferred to help those around him. He was seriously ill only 3 or 4 days and without suffering. The faithful physician, who had so often contributed to the comfort of the sick and dying, was given a seemingly painless passing away.

The funeral occurred at Mount Pisgah on Saturday... His body was deposited in the adjoining cemetery with Masonic honors."

Note: Tombstone inscription at Mount Pisgah Cemetery, Lafayette, Chambers County AL - "DR. L. P. HAMNER" (no dates); Born 24 Feb 1832 according to his Personal Statement given in 1907-08 and confirmed by obituary

The 1860 Federal Census of Tallapoosa County, Western Dist (Beat 12), Post Office Daviston, Ala. shows then 28-year-old "Lovic P. Hamner" a physician, born in Georgia along with his wife Elmira, 26, and two children John W, 10, and Eliza T, 6, residing in the household (#199) of John E Lewis, age 60. This John E Lewis is the father of Jones F. Lewis and Augustus Lewis both of whom later enlisted in Hamner's Company B (Jones F. Lewis' household #193 also appears on the same census page [pg 29], as does household #194 of Henry T. Lewis, possibly, the Thomas Henry Lewis who also served in Company B); According to Civil War physician authority, Dr. Terry Hambrecht, Dr. Lovic Pierce Hamner held a certificate from an Alabama Examining Board in lieu of an M.D. degree, and while he may have attended classes in the Medical Department of the University of Nashville (as stated in his obituary), he did not receive a medical degree from that institution.

APPARENTLY THE "WALT" HARMAN IDENTIFIED IN THE FOLLOWING WEEKLY ENTERPRISE ARTICLE OF UNKNOWN DATE IN 1902): "The members of this Company who are living and were present at our meeting at Lafayette in August in 1885, will recollect that I had published in the Lafayette papers the above muster roll giving opposite each name anything that happened during the war to such member. You will, also, recall the scene that followed when Jack Summers and Walt Harman unfurled our old Battle Flag to the immense crowd that thronged around. How some shouted — some cried — some called out  —  "Pass it this way, I want to lay my hands on it one more time."  / Though dumb and without speech that old battle flag aroused the patriotic emotions of that large crowd more than the eloquence of mortal tongues. Some poor mothers whose sons had fallen beneath its folds would clasp it while tears of bitter anguish would stream down their eyes, yet deep down in their hearts there dwelt a soothing consciousness that my boy died for his country. In the history that I shall publish will appear all the personal happenings. In the next issue will appear the muster roll of company K which will close the rolls of the regiment. I will then take up the history of the regiment where I left off. I will enclose in this issue of the paper a supplement to the members of the regiment.

In Memoriam
            Mr. Elias Harmon was born August 3, 1844 and died July 17, 1918. He was married to Nancy Jackson November 29, 1866, and to this union were born five sons and three daughters. All survive him except one son, who died about a year ago, and his dear companion preceded him several years ago. Mr. Harmon united with the Primitive Baptist Church in August 1889, and lived an humble, pious Christian life till his death. He was a Confederate soldier during the Civil War - a member of Company G, Thirty-seventh Alabama regiment - and served his country loyally. He was a devoted husband and father. Children and grandchildren were devoted  to him and he performed his duty toward them in every respect. He was an honest, faithful, upright citizen in all the relations of life; was very industrious, and labored with his hands to provide for his family and those dependent upon him. He was in feeble health for several years prior to his death and suffered much pain, but bore it all with Christian fortitude and died in full faith of love and hope of a living God.
            His place is vacant in his home where he lived so many years, and he is sadly missed, but we believe he is at rest, not dead, but gone before. His body was brought to Macedonia Church, followed by many relatives and friends, and, after a comforting discourse by Elder B. F. House, was laid to rest by the side of his wife, there to await the resurrection. Peace to his ashes.
            Written by request - Mrs. Ina Smith
According to Brack, per "Survey of Cemeteries in Chambers County, Alabama" there is a tombstone in the Macedonia Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery that reads: "Elias Harmon, Co. I, 37th Ala., Inf., C.S.A., Aug. 3, 1844 - July 17, 1918." He is buried next to his wife and son.

"Death of W. T. Harmon
      There died at his home near Marcoot on Monday of last week Mr. W. T. Harmon, who was about 78 years of age. He was a good citizen, and was well thought of. He was never married, always saying he was not able to take care of a wife. He was an old Confederate soldier, enlisting in the service in April 1862, Co. I, of the 37th Alabama infantry, under Capt. Talbott. He was in the siege of Vicksburg and was captured, and being paroled he returned to the service and was in the battle of Chickamauga and was continuously with the Confederate Army till the surrender. There was never a stain on his character as a soldier. It takes a good citizen to make a good soldier. He has many traits of character to be commended. He never united with any church. He was interred at Macedonia Church, Tuesday the 2nd at 11 o’clock, after a few appropriate remarks by S. A. Jarrell and a prayer by J. B. F. Lindsey. His body was laid in the tomb to await the resurrection."

Per “Survey of Cemeteries in Chambers County, Alabama” there is a tombstone in the Macedonia Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery that reads: “William Thomas Harmon, Oct. 12, 1836 – May 25, 1914.” (impossible to reconcile 1910 obituary to reported 1914 inscription of headstone)
