Company K, 4th Alabama Cavalry (Roddey's) Regiment, C.S.A.
Cavalry (Roddey's) Regiment
Hello, my name is Richard B. Davis and welcome to my website honoring the
service of five of my confederate ancestors during the War Between the
States. In 1861, Esom D. Kelley, James M. Kelley, Philemon J. Kelley, John
Tyler Kelley, and Benjamin Dekalb Kelley, of their own free will and accord, took
up arms to defend the Confederate States of America against hostile northern
invaders and prevent further erosion of Alabama's state rights. They were
all brothers and entered the service together, with two of the them making
the supreme sacrifice of giving their lives for what they believed in. This
page is dedicated to my two sons, Joshua Tyler Davis and Jason Alexander
Davis, so they will never forget the courage and bravery of their Great-Great-Great
Grandfather and Uncles, and what the word "sacrifice" really means.
