Remembering Private John Henry McBride, Company A of the Fifteenth Kentucky

John Henry McBride was born in August 1842 in Franklin County, Kentucky, the son of James Smart McBride and Mildred Edwards. A blacksmith, he was 5’8”, with a light complexion, blue eyes, and light hair. Records indicate he married Armeta Beasley on October 3, 1890 in Gallatin County, Illinois, but there is reason to believe that marriage might have occurred much earlier.
