Some facts stated in his application are: Born 1835 in Giles Co. Enlisted in
Wheeler's Regiment, Co. H, Captain Jones, Oct 1861. He surrendered in Alabama
with rest of unit. At the time of application, his wife was 52 years
old; he stated that his children were all dead. The pension was finally
approved but Lorenzo HYLES died right before he could have started
collecting. He was dead before July 26, 1905.
Lorenzo D. HYLES married Sarah A. E. GILMORE, also of Giles Co. She was born Mar
20, 1851 and they married July 31,1867. Lorenzo became an attorney
and they moved to Gibson County. We do not know anything of the children of
Lorenzo as they had all died prior to 1903. We have not found record of
Lorenzo's burial place but Sarah A. E. GILMORE HYLES died Feb 19, 1911 and is
buried in Gibson Co. at Bell's Chapel Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery.
