Ancestor Info
Name: William Bluford HugginsRank: Private Company: C

WB Huggins was my great-grandfather. He enlisted on May 13, 1862. The unit was sent to TN, then MS where it was assigned to T.H. Taylor's Brigade, Dept. of MS and East LA. It participated in the battle at Champion 's Hill and was captured at Vicksburg on July 4, 1863. Exchanged and reorganized, it was placed in General Cummings' Brigade, Army of TN. The 34th was active in many engagements from Chattanooga to Nashville. WB, along with brothers Asa and Aaron, were captured at Nashville but I don't have details. On April 26th, 1865 General Joseph E. Johnston surrendered his Army of TN, the men of the 34th GA Regiment included, to General Sherman in Greensboro, NC. WB and Asa walked home. WB became a farmer and later became the Sexton (caretaker) for the Carrollton, GA City Cemetery, located just down the block from where he and his wife Levy Ann resided. He was buried there in January 1905.
