Ancestor Info
Name: James William GrooverRank: Private Company: I

Born in Bulloch Co, GA on March 5th, 1827. Enlisted October 25th, 1862 at Camp Young in Savannah, GA. Fought in the Siege of Vicksburg and Battle of Chickamauga. He was wounded in the left hand at the Battle of Chickamauga and thereafter could not perform regular duty. He was then sent to serve at a hospital in Macon, GA to help nurse the sick until the surrender. In 1908, he was living near Blocher, GA (Liberty Co.), which was right on the Liberty/Tattnall Co line. In that year, at age 81, he applied for his pension. Although he was poor and completely disabled, he was denied because he owned the little piece of land he lived on. He died the following year. He willed this piece of land to his grandson James 'Jessie' Groover (Charles Allen Groover's son) on the condition he take care of JW and his wife in their old age. In the GA court case Wilkes v. Groover, his daughter (Catherine America Groover Wilkes) sued to have the land taken away, claiming he did not take care of them as required.
