Mark - A couple of years ago I ran across references to one or more of my family names in reference to the Sultana - some survived and some were lost & I think at least one of the family names included brothers (lost and survived). I can't remember the family names though.
Looking for anyone from Alabama, specifically Etowah, Blount, Marshall, DeKalb, St. Clair Counties. Surnames include: Battles, Brothers, Conn, Galloway, Gilliland, Hopper, Lee, and Morton. I am especially inclined to believe it was the Battles line. I would suspect either these were civilians or workers, as they were likely from a family of Confederates vs. Union soldiers.
If it's not too much trouble, could you check those names or locations?
