TD, might also want to mention he worked with a future US Marshal for the State of Georgia. Robert Forsyth was a Captain in Lee's Legion. Interestingly, both men had sons who went on to become somebodies in the nation's history. Lee's youngest son we obviously know became General of the Army of Northern Virginia (of course at least two of his older brothers were a bit of somebodies in their own right as his half brother Henry "Black Horse Harry" Lee became a biographer and historian who wrote three noteworthy books and his brother Sydney Smith Lee was a Commodore in the US Navy and a Captain in the Confederate Navy) and Forsyth's son John became the 13th Sec. State.
