Elisha ROBERTS of Polk Co., TN enlisted at age 52 in Louden, TN on 7/18/1862 into Co. C, Walker's Battalion, Thomas Legion, NC CSA. In Sept 1862, he transferred to Co., A where 2 of his sons had enlisted, after he left to fight, over in Murphy, Cherokee Co., NC. They fought side by side until on July 8, 1863 Elisha died of disease at Frank Ramsey Hospital, Louden, TN. Angry, his 2 sons left the Confederacy and later fought for the Union which service they and later their widow's received a pension. Elisha was born in 1810 in Clarke Co., GA.

Company B
Simon Asbury Dixon
- Private
(3x-Great Uncle) Simon Asbury Dixon (along with his brother, William Anderson Dixon) enlisted at Cherokee County, NC on January 5th, 1863. Served in Company B, Walkers Battalion of Thomas Legion. He and his brother spent 10 rather uneventful months guarding the railway bridges of the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad, experiencing only minor skirmishes until the Federal artillery bombarded Confederate defenders at Carter’s Depot on September 21 and 22. Flanked out of their entrenchments, the Confederates retreated to Zollicoffer, burning the bridge over the Watauga River at Carter’s Depot as they left. Apparently, that was enough of that war for my two uncles, in October 1863 they are listed as deserting at Carters Depot. Simon and William returned and lived the remainder of their lives near the town of Cleveland, Bradley County, TN.
