Ancestor Info
Name: James L MartinRank: Private Company: E

James L. Martin, listed as J.L. Martin on the muster rolls, was my GGGGrandfather. He lived in Milton County, Ga at the time of his enlistment. He enlisted in Co. A August 2, 1862, but was transferred to Co. E on February 1, 1863. According to his pension application, he was captured and held at Camp Chase Ohio, and was exchanged sometime before the end of the war, however I have been unable to verify where he was captured. He also stated that he was at home at the time of the surrender, and had not had time to rejoin his unit after he had been exchanged. He moved to Upshur County Texas in 1869, which is now Camp County. He applied for his pension about 1910, but was denied due to lack of documentation of the unit within the records of the Confederate War Department. He died in Camp County Texas in 1922, and is buried in Leesburg Cemetery in Camp County.
