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:

June 30,1904, Local Newspaper; Body Recovered; The body of George Jones who was drowned in Richland Creek near the Atchison farm Wednesday morning of last week, was recovered about 2:00 that afternoon 40 to 50 yards from were his fish nets were. As he was a good swimmer, the cause of his drowning in a matter of conjecture but is supposed he cramped or became tangled in some of the remnants of barbed wire fencing which is found in nearly every creek in the county and especially in Richland. Mr. Jones was an Ex-confederate and a pensioner, having received his first pension money in December. He survived by his wife and two sons. The burial occurred Thursday at the Anthony Graveyard..  Enlisted at Lagrange, Alabama. in 1861, contracted measles while marching in rain there. Measles settled in his eyes and he was nearly blind the rest of his life. His commanders were  Goodwin or Goodman and Ashford. In 1864 he was left at hospital in Moulton, Alabama. where he  helped care for the wounded and was cared for himself. He never was able to go back to field.
