Madison F. Crumley, first cousin to George B. and Sidney S. Crumley, was chosen for transfer and promotion to the 3rd Georgia Battalion SS on June 8, 1863. He had served as 2cd Lt. in Co.B of the 18th Georgia, the only non-Texas regiment in Hood`s Texas Brigade.

He was held prisoner at Fort Delaware until July 19, 1865, long after the close of combat as he joined many others who would not take the oath of allegance until the formal wording was changed. He devoted his life to the practice of medicine in Macon and Atlanta before settling in Ogelthorpe, Georgia where he served as Mayor.
