44th United States Colored Infantry      
Company E
Owen Gideon - Private   
I am not a relative, but a neighbor to an estate in Gordon County Georgia where Owen lived as a slave of Dr. Berry W. Gideon.
Owen was captured while in service with the 44th, USCT. Private Gideon escaped and returned home sick where Dr Berry Gideon doctored and cured him. Owen returned to his unit and was honorably discharged in the fall of 1866.
Owen later moved to Hamilton County Tenn. but he returned to Gordon County in the 1870's to testify as a witness on behalf of Dr. Gideon. The Dr. had filed a claim with the SCC for reimbursement of damages to property, (the doctors home was burned by the Union Army in 1864)
Owen is buried in the Johnson Cemetery off Turkey Foot rd. near the Booker T. Washington state park in Hamilton County Tenn.
