"Mr. Mike Moorman Dead.
Mr. Mike Moorman, son of the oldest and most highly respected citizens in the county, died Friday and was buried Saturday at Emory Chapel. Mr. Moorman had lived in this world for seventy-two years, and had served well his time as a citizen. He was a member of the Methodist Church, and was much loved by all who knew him. We offer sympathies to the bereaved friends and relatives.

(Second article)

            Michael Moorman died in Chambers County, Ala., August 27, 1897. He was married to Elizabeth Jay December 21, 1848. He joined the Methodist Church South July 1873.
            He was a good neighbor, a kind and devoted husband, and affectionate father. He was afflicted several years before he died, having had a stroke of paralysis, from which he never recovered. A few months before he died he was visited with another stroke, which resulted in his death.
            We visited him before he lost his power of speech, and talked with him in regard to his hopes and prospects, and he expressed to us his faith in Christ and his hope in Heaven.
            May the blessings of God rest upon the bereaved ones, and may his grace save them all in Heaven.
           –
T. T. Wilkins"

"... G-Grandpa Lavarsha was from an Auburn family with some means: his divorced mother owned property and slaves, he had been given an excellent education prior to his enlistment, and he was the youngest child. His mother lost everything because of the war and his oldest sister said that their slaves had buried a cotton crop and that after the war they dug it up and sold it to get money to go to Texas in early 1866. At some point in the war (I’m assuming the latter part) G-Grandpa Lavarsha got a bullet in his lung but it couldn’t be removed ... because of this he suffered from chronic asthma in the latter part of his life. He was a school teacher and because of his asthma he was forced to change his employment often and as a result his family never had much money...";
Texas Confederate Pension application filed by Cora Ellizan [Anderson] Nunnellee, widow, at Houston TX in 1930 states: "CSA Co D 37th Alabama Infantry Dowdell’s Volunteers /1862-1865/CSA widow’s pension No. 46721, 1930, Houston, Tx: Soldier, E, L.
