Can you tell me more? I am collecting short Biographies on each soldier from an Alabama unit to be displayed on the Soldier Roots pages. With each Bio, I will display the Email address of the contributor or contributors as source/contacts for other researchers. Send the following information to me, Carolyn Golowka.

Items needed for Bio, but will take anything I can get:


ADAH stands for the Alabama Department of Archives and History. ADAH is linked to the Civil War Service Database, which is a treasure trove for Alabama Civil War researchers. For more information about this database, click here

CWSS stands for the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System, which is the National Parks Service's database with 6.3 million names of those who served in the Civil War, both Union and Confederate. For more information on this database, click here.

Some Civil War veterans eventually lived the last part of their lives in the Mountain Creek Soldiers Home in Chilton County, Alabama. A list of some of its residents from 1901 to October 1933 can be found by clicking here.

Confederate Memorial Park is located in Southeast Chilton County and is administered by the Alabama Historical Commission. Confederate Memorial Park was the site of Alabama's only Confederate veterans home (Mountain Creek Soldiers Home). The facility was in operation from 1902 to 1939 for the care of elderly veterans and their wives and widows. Of the many hundreds who resided at the facility, 313 were buried in one of the two cemeteries located at this site. Cemetery #1 is the original cemetery, and was used from 1902 to 1911, when Cemetery #2 was opened.

Jonathan Americus (Private, The Pickens Planters, Company B, 40th Regiment, Alabama Infantry) was born October 04, 1844 in Georgia and died February 28, 1863, in Vicksburg, Mississippi.  He was buried in Section G, Grave 5629 in the Military Cemetery, Vicksburg, Mississippi.  See brother to Marion Columbus Hollingsworth this page. “The History of Pickens County, Alabama, page 61 1540 – 1920” by James F. Clanadan, it is found: “On the 20th day of November, 1862, Andrew Bush and A. J. Hollingsworth joined Company B, 40th Regiment by enlistment, arriving at the age of eighteen years. They were from Pickens County, Alabama.”  
An account in the Alabama Historical Quarterly reported substantially as follows: February 17, 1863.  It was raining torrents and we were ordered to fall in line just at dark and move up to Chickasaw Bridge.  Lt. Latham commanded the Company, and Captain Willett commanded the Regiment.  This dark and rainy night the mud was from shoe top to knee deep and there was no escape from it.  There were great ditches on either side.  Several of the boys lost their shoes in the mud, and some were crippled by falling into the ditches.  Americus J. Hollingsworth fell into the ditch and it was so deep that it was quite a while before he got out, and when he did he was covered with mud.  A violent attack of pleurisy developed the next day.  He was sent to the hospital at Vicksburg where pneumonia developed.  He died after a painful illness of several days.  
Another account of this event was taken from the diary of Captain E. D. Willett, Commander. 40th Regiment, Alabama Infantry, Confederate States Army.
On the evening of 17th of February 1863, it was raining torrents when orders came for the 40th to move up to the bridge known as Chickasaw Bridge in that terrible rain.  The Regiment moved at dark in the rain, and the roads were well nigh impassable.  The mud and water was from shoe mouth to knee deep, and mostly knee deep, and on either side were deep gullies.  The Regiment marched that dreadful road three miles in the dark and got to the bridge about 11 O’clock that night.   The 2nd Texas had not moved and the 40th were at the bridge in the dark.  When the men got there they were warm and perspiring freely, but stopping in the rain soon chilled the men.  They had no tents or cover, and were soon ordered to bivouac on the hills.  Each Company went up on the hills and after an hour or two got fires started and partially warmed and dried their clothes.  Many lost their shoes, and many had fallen and injured themselves.  Few slept that night.  The next day the weather was better and the men dried their clothes.   A camp was laid off in a cornfield and the whole Regiment moved to it on Saturday evening in hard rain.    The Regiment remained at Chickasaw Bridge until the 19th day of March doing guard duty, picket duty on the Lake farm and on the levee.  Americus J. Hollingsworth by the march to Chickasaw Bridge was taken sick and the attack was violent.  He lingered five or six days in great pain and on the 28th day of February he died.  He was a little over eighteen years old and unmarried.  Source:  Jim Allen
