John Wesley Haley - Private   
J.W. Haley enlisted with Co.'B', 1st Regiment, GSL, on February 9, 1863 at Carnesville, Ga. He was enrolled by John H. Patrick, who was Captain of Co.'B'. The time period for which he enrolled was 'For the War, unless sooner disbanded'. On the May31, 1863 muster roll he is listed as 'Absent on sick furlough'. He was eligible for two months pay, but I'm not sure if he was actually paid the money in hand since he was on sick furlough. The pay for GSL soldiers was $11/month, so he was supposed to get $22 (from Mar 31 to May 31) [This means he was probably with the regiment in Savannah].
He's listed on the July 31, 1863 muster roll as 'Absent without Leave'. He received no pay from May31-July31. (So, it is my guess that he died within this two-month period, and word hadn't yet been received by his Captain)
While on sick furlough, J.W. Haley could have been at home, or he may have been at the GSL hospital in Cartersville, Ga. (Camp Foster).

Martin Luther Jones - 3rd Lieutenant   
Martin Luther Jones was from Dahlonega Georgia. He was elected 3rd Lt at the formation of the Regiment. It trained at Camp McDonald in present-day Kennesaw, Georgia. I have researched him and believe that he may have been captured sometime during the Battle of Atlanta, when the Ist GaSL was deployed somewhere in the southwest of the city. I believe he may have escaped. He possibly suffered from 'shell shock' for a brief time. He survived the war and returned to Dahlonega and lived a productive life. I am very interested in corresponding with anyone whose relative served in 'D' Company, the Blue Ridge Rangers.

Francis Franklin Gann - 2nd Lieutenant   
Francis Franklin Gann (my GG grandfather), was born in Clarke County, GA on 10 August 1834, the first child of state senator John Gann and his second wife Mary Ann.

Francis Franklin, as well as a brother and half brother, served in Company E (Cobb/Fulton County 'State Rights Guards'), 1st Regiment, Georgia State Line. The unit was attached to Stovall's brigade during the Atlanta campaign.

Francis Franklin was wounded in the Battle of Atlanta, July 22, 1864. The wound was a shot in the hip, with the ball so embedded the surgeons, under battlefield conditions, were unable to extract it. The ball remained in his hip for 12 years and was taken out in 1876.

According to records, the unit attacked the enemy works at the Troup Hurt House. Captured DeGress's Battery (1st Illinois Light Artillery, Battery H), which had been 'playing havoc' in the Confederate lines. 1st Regiment suffered 92 casualties.

He joined Company E along with his half brothers Francis Franklin and Nathan Thornton. Like his brother F.F., Henry was wounded during the Battle of Atlanta.

James L Martin - Private   
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.
