  1. On the morning of the first day of the Battle of Shiloh (April 6th, 1862), Mr. Larkin Rushing was visiting the farm of his son, John C Rushing and his family. The farm was in civil District #11 above the Owl Creek which was a safe area away from the battle. Larkin Rushing stayed with the family until noon when he decided to check on other members of the extended family and so he left the cabin and went down the road. Did this become a Shiloh casualty? You take a guess after considering that he moved down (south) the road towards the battle as the battle moved up (north) into the Jones field, Cavalry field and towards Mr. Larkin Rushing. He was never seen again. He left behind his wife Nancy Layton Rushing Age 57. Larkin was 59 when he went missing. Nothing was ever seen or heard of him again. Larkin and his family lived in McNairy County and several years later, Nancy and two other sons, Preston and Thomas Rushing moved to Texas.
