7th Georgia Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Jefferson AdamsRank: Corporal Company: C

Enlisted as a Private, and promoted to a Corporal, in Company C, of the 7th GA Infantry Regiment. Although it is unknown whether he died in battle during the Civil War (as he has no 'CSA' tombstone or other Civil War grave marker), his date of death was recorded on his tombstone as 'May 21, 1864', which was the exact same day that his unit was fighting in 'The Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse', near Fredericksburg, Virginia. And, since it is HIGHLY doubtful that he was safe at home in his sprawling GA estate [where he had 40 slaves, according to the Slave Census of 1860, so he had a financial interest in ensuring that GA remained a slave state], while the REST of his unit was fighting in VA, his family assumes that he was among the 'countless dead' (estimated at 15,000) cleared from the battlefield May 21, 1864. Although we have no 'proof' of his battlefield death, we are hopeful that it can someday be proven that he was killed in VA, and sent home to rest in GA, where he lies today.
