James Meadows - Private   
According to copies of James Meadows' Civil War documents that I downloaded from Footnote.com, James Meadows left Co. K and joined Co. G. He then left the 8th Infantry and joined the 25th Infantry. He fought at Chickamauga, GA with the 25th Infantry. James was my husband's 2nd great grandfather, and he seems to have been quite a...character.

James was the son of Charles and Rachel (MNU) Meadows. Charles and Rachel settled in the Flynn's Lick area of Jackson County, Tennessee and that is where James Meadows was born about 1832. According to his death certificate, James died in Gainesboro, Jackson County, Tennessee Jan 12, 1916 of La-Gripp (Influenza).

Thomas Elias Brents - Sergeant   
Thomas Elias Brents enlisted at the age of 15 May 1861 at Camp Trousdsale, Tennessee. Son of T.W. Brents early Tennessee doctor and well known preacher (founder of the Church of Christ). Fought at Cornith Ms. and sent home because of his age. He rejoined the 8th in the battles of Perryville, Kentucky and Murfreesboro as part of the Wright Brigade.

Wounded in the Battle of Chickamauga, a bullet lodging in his chest, above the heart. His life was saved by a ferrotype (tintype) picture of a young woman who later became his wife. The bullet struck the picture and lost part of its force before entering his chest. He was sent to the hospital at Macon, Georgia. Following his recovery and his work at the hospital, he rejoined the unit in Rock Face Ga. then moved with General Hood for the Battle of Nashville now as the Maney's Brigade. Because the 8th lost most of their wagons in the retreat, he was instructed by his Captain to return home for supplies. On the return journey he walked on a stone pike covered with snow with nothing but rags on his feet. Stopping for the night at a house, he was give a pair of old shoes and found out about the Confederate surrender.

Following his marriage to Orpha Prosser in January of 1865, he attended Macon Medical School, where he specialized in medicine and surgery and graduated in 1871. He was offered the chair of medicine and surgery but declined, preferring private practice in Lewisburg. He and Mrs. Brents had four children born in Lewisburg. He became a member of the Masonic Lodge at Petersburg, Tennessee in June of 1866.

In 1870 Dr. Brents and family migrated to Texas and the Indian Territory, going first to Dexter in Northeast Texas. In 1887, he moved north to Marietta, in the Indian Territory, and later to Ada about 1900. He practiced medicine and surgery until 1909. At that time he was forced to give up surgery because of palsy. He continued office calls and consultations for several years thereafter. Prior to his retirement, he owned and operated drug stores in several towns. His final years were spent in Ada, Ok.
