My Great Grand Uncle Jesse Peacock.. Died in the First Battle of Manassas

Today on this day that we remember those that died in Battle, I want to remember my Great Grand Uncle Jesse C. Peacock. He was born in about 1837 and is shown on the 1850 Clark County census with his parents, Levi and Mary Elizabeth Bell Peacock. (my 2nd great Grandparents). He was 13 and living at home with this brothers and sisters.
We find him again in the 1860 Census at age 23 with his wife Nancy age 24, and their two children. A girl age 4 named Elizabeth and a boy age 9 months, named James. He named his daughter after his Mother. 
I am sure that times were hard then. The War was imminent and People were afraid that a way of life was changing. I wish I knew more of what life was for him in that year before he enlisted in the War. We find him registered for duty in the Conecuh Guards, Company E, Fourth Alabama Regiment from Riley’s History of Conecuh County, AL

Published 1881
Below is given a complete roll of this company, which was the first organized for the war in Conecuh.
 It was permanently organized at Sparta, Alabama, on the 1st day of April 1861; mustered at Sparta Depot, April 24th, 1861.
Just 3 short months later, he was killed and he left a widow with two small children at a time that food was scarce, and their money if they had any was worthless, and every one was losing the tiny living they eked out to others that came to claim it.
PEACOCK, Jesse, killed in first battle Manassas, July 21, 1861.
I often wonder if his Mother talked about her heritage or if she knew that she was Native American and of the Vann/Moytoy line.
I often think that this is the stock I come from and I can do anything because they could.
I honor him and all the fallen today and all those that still fall.. Love and light, Kimmee
