Edited to correct cemetery name to Lindale City Cemetery.
- John Smith was in the Civil War and was injured (lost his leg) in a battle in the lower part of the state. He is buried near 5 forks area in Oconee SC. Go down Stribling Shoals Rd and turn on Marble Branch Rd (small dirt rd). His and George Watkin's are the only 2 marked graves. John's headstone said CSA Orr's Reg SC Comp E11. I think E11 is wrong because it was a Company from another part of the state. I think he could had been in Company K.
