Name: Ephrom Greene FulmerRank: Private Company: F
Ephrom (aka Ephraim) was 40 years old in March of 1862 when he enlisted in Company F of the 30th Alabama. Ephrom grew up in the Edgefield District of South Carolina and moved to Talladega, Alabama sometime in the 1850s. He was a farmer. Ephraim's son Manuel J. was part of the unit as well, and was mortally wounded at the Battle of Resaca. He is buried in the Confederate Cemetery in Newnan, Georgia. Other relatives in the unit included his nephews William and James Fulmer as well as George Washington Gunter and A.M. and Hudson Hallman. Ephrom's health suffered from the rigors of army life in the field (severe dysentery) and he was granted a 30 day medical leave in April of 1863. Consequently, he most likely missed the Battle of Champion's Hill. Although never fully recovered, Ephrom was back in the ranks by the fall of Vicksburg and received his parole after the surrender of that city. Pension records indicate that he served almost until the end of the war or until March 25, 1865, when he received a medical discharge due to his ill health. After the war he returned to Talladega where he lived until his death in 1901. A Physician's Certificate dated June 4, 1900 shows that Ephrom suffered a stroke in 1896 and he was paralyzed on his right side and unable to work. The Certificate was signed by Dr. A.G. Sims, who was also a member of the 30th Alabama and had surrendered at Greensboro. Ephrom's wife was Mary Coleman Fulmer. My Great, Grandfather William Franklin Pickens Fulmer was one of Ephrom's sons. Ephrom is buried in the Hepzibah Cemetery in Talladega, Alabama and rests next to his wife Mary.

Name: William Robert SpruillRank: Private Company: H
I have found the military records of Walter Robert Spruill ((photocopies). His last name did not contain an 'e' prior to capture at the surrender of Vicksburg. All records prior to that time were spelled Spruill. The July 4, 1863 POW record did not contain an 'e'. However, when he signed an oath on July 8, 1863, stating he would not take up arms against the U.S. unless duly exchanged, he signed adding the 'e'. He was exchanged July 23, 1863. He moved to Texas in 1894 and applied for a Confederate pension in 1925. It required official documentation of service. He obtained a copy of his oath from the U.S War department which included the 'e'. His pension check included the 'e' and he had to endorse it with the 'e'. Thereafter his name and those of his family was spelled Spruiell.

After returning from military service, Moses Sparks was married to Susan Scott on November 8, 1868, by D. C. Williamson. She had been born on April 2, 1846, in Alabama.

Name: John Wesley JenningsRank: Private Company: K
PRIVATE JOHN WESLEY JENNINGS
Company K, 30th Alabama Infantry
John Wesley Jennings was born April 6, 1828 in Georgia. He was the son of John B. and Nancy (Bruce) Jennings. John married Sarah Bethany Camp around 1871 in Polk County, Georgia. John Wesley Jennings died April 21, 1910 and was buried in the Pleasant Gap Cemetery near Pleasant Gap, Alabama (Cherokee County). His wife Sarah Bethany Jennings died October 9, 1921 in Tyler, Texas and was also buried in the Pleasant Gap Cemetery. Both of their graves are unmarked, but it is believed they are buried next to the marked grave of their daughter Effie G. Jennings. They had four children:
1. Effie G. Jennings, born November 1, 1871; died December 19, 1872
2. Walter Edward Jennings, born January 30, 1874; died June 14, 1952
3. Jackson J. Jennings, born June 1877; died March 6, 1920
4. Nancy Augusta Jennings, born November 4, 1880; died May 16, 1915
When he was still a boy in the late 1830’s, John Wesley Jennings’ family moved from Georgia and settled in Calhoun County, Alabama in the Rabbittown Community. His father John B. Jennings bought a farm and cultivated a small plot of land. In the early 1840’s the family fortunes declined and John B. Jennings lost the family farm. The family then moved to Jonesboro in Jefferson County where John B. Jennings worked in the iron ore mines until he saved enough money to buy back his farm in the late 1850’s.
By 1860 John Wesley Jennings was living away from home and working in Shelby County, Alabama. He enlisted on March 1, 1862 in Shelby County as a Private in Company B of the 30th Alabama Infantry. He later transferred to Company K which consisted of men from Calhoun County, many whom he probably knew. John Wesley Jennings’ C.S.A. pension records show that he was wounded at the Battle of Baker’s Creek (Champion Hill) in Mississippi. His C.S.A. service records show that he was captured during the battle on May 16, 1863 and admitted to the Prison Hospital at Champion Hills, Mississippi with a flesh wound to the right thigh. He was paroled and returned to Confederate service. Apparently his wound continued to trouble him because he was admitted to Way Hospital in Meridian Mississippi on February 20, 1865. He was furloughed for 60 days from the Disabled Camp in Lauderdale, Mississippi. The end of the war found John Wesley Jennings a prisoner of war in Talledega, Alabama. He was paroled on May 26, 1865 and the war was over for him.
After the war John Wesley Jennings returned to Cherokee County, Alabama where he lived for the rest of his life farming near Pleasant Gap. In 1994 John A. Roberts, a descendant of John Wesley Jennings, placed a C.S.A. tombstone on the site where John Wesley Jennings is believed to be buried to commemorate his Confederate service and mark his final resting place.
