Anita, I found the following information in Volume II of "The passing of the Pines" and I'm posting it here in case you don't have it:
John A. Handley Family
John A. Handley was born 10-15-1822 in Irwin Co., GA, in the section of that county which became Wilcox in 1857. He was married to Lucretia Mixon, 1-20-1850, b. 8-21-1829 in what is now Wilcox Co. John A. Handley d. in Wilcox Co., 9-14-1888; Lucretia Mixon Handley d. 2-8-1910; both bur. Bethlehem Church Cem. In Ben Hill County.
John A. Handley was a farmer prior to and following the Civil War. He entered the service of the Confederacy in March 1862 and served in Co. E, 49th Regt., Ga. Vol. Inf. throughout the war. This regiment fought in Leeâ€™s Army of Northern Virginia and was engaged in all battles from that of Seven Pines in 1862 until the remaining few surrendered at Appomattox in April, 1865. He was wounded in the battle of Cedar Run in 1862 and was captured at the battle of the Wilderness in May 1864. Following the surrender at Appomattox, he was released from prison at Elmira, NY, and walked home, arriving in July 1865. The 49th Georgia Regiment first served in Stonewall Jacksonâ€™s Division and later at Gettysburg and the remainder of the war was in General E.L. Thomasâ€™ Brigade, General Dorsey Penderâ€™s Division, General A.P. Hillâ€™s Corps.
To the marriage of John A. Handley and Lucretia Mixon Handley were born 10 children. John A. Jr. b. 1850; Georgia W. b. 1851; Sarah M. b. 1853; Thomas B. b. 1854; Edwin M. b. 1857; Daniel F. b. 1859; Jackson P. b. 1860; Robert V. b. 1866; Mary Jane b. 1867; Amanda V. b. 1870.

Amanda Handley Bowen was the only child of John A. and Lucretia who lived her adult life in Wilcox Co. Most of the other children lived in Florida and information on them is sketchy. Charles C. Fulghrum, Jr. is a great-grandson of John A. and Lucretia Handley.
