Unit Type

17th Georgia Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: William Allison JeffcoatRank: Private Company: G

My g-grandfather, Allison Jeffcoat, aka William Allison Jeffcoat/Jefcoat, was a member of Co. G, 17th Georgia Infantry. He was wounded 16 May 1864, hospitalized at Jackson Hospital in Richmond, VA, and subsequently discharged due to his wound. I believe he enlisted 14 Aug 1861 and have confirmed with the Nat’l Park Service that his unit was at Gettysburg in the Devil’s Den area, which I visited in 2006. The service info is from a copy of my g-grandmother’s Civil War Widow’s Pension, granted in Texas in 1926, and an accompanying affidavit from Maj. Gen. Robert Davis, War Dept., The Adjutant General’s Office, dated 14 September 1926. The pension also indicates his unit was mustered in South Carolina. His grave’s headstone had only his name, some cross-type symbol, and his CSA unit. The stone was stolen from the cemetery 2 yrs ago and I am having it replaced.
