1. There is conjecture that "John R. Upshaw" was this unidentified son, which is due mainly to the comment by William D. Upshaw in his book "Echoes From a Recluse", page 453, in which he refers to "My Uncle, John R. Upshaw (now of Marble Valley, Shelby Co., Ala.)". IfApparently, this was an unfortunate use of words, as there is no evidence to support this relationship. The John R. Upshaw, born in 1830 and married Eliza F. Stamps in Coweta Co, GA, was the son of Adkin Upshaw, who later left his will in Carroll Co, GA, and named a son "John R. Upshaw". If "Eliza F. Stamps" & Adeline ("Addie") Stamps were sisters, John R. Upshaw would've been the uncle of William D. Upshaw by marriage. This John R. Upshaw did later live in Shelby Co, AL, died there 6 June 1898 and his widow, Eliza F. (Stamps) Upshaw, drew a Confederate Widow's pension. I believe I have seen tombstone inscriptions for them somewhere but cannot now locate them. There is no John R. Upshaw found in the Haston Upshaw estate papers as an heir or otherwise, although all the other children are. The unidentified male child, born 1818-1820, is not found in these papers either, but he could have died between 1840 and 1849.
