48th Alabama Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Joshua A SparksRank: Unknown Company: C

Joshua A. Sparks, son of Zerah and Luranna (Horn) Sparks, was born about 1839. On his military record, he gave his birthplace as Gwinnett County, Georgia. He was married to Elizabeth Williamson on July 12, 1861, in Marshall County by Judge M. Gilbreath. Joshua A. Sparks enlisted as a 2nd Corporal in Company C, commanded by Capt. W. S. Walker, of the 48th Regiment Alabama Infantry of the Confederate States Army on April 7, 1862, at Warrenton, Alabama. He was hospitalized for sickness and wounds at Winchester, Virginia, on August 9, 1862, but apparently he was sent home from there on a medical furlough. He died at his home on May 5, 1863. The cause of his death was recorded as “Alabama fever.' According to the military records of Joshua Sparks, his widow, Elizabeth, made a settlement with the authorities by which she accepted compensation for his transportation from Richmond, Virginia, to Warrenton, Alabama, (1550 miles) in lieu of money due for his furlough. Daniel C. Williamson witnessed her signature. We have no further records of this couple.
