COMPANY G, 5th REGIMENT Civil War

Burials of Men


When I decided to do this project it seemed simple enough. I was just going to determine the date of death and place of burial of the 122 officers and men listed on the following roster of Co. G, 5th Ga. Vol. Inf.
Shouldn't be too very hard, right? Wrong! This turned out to be an enormous project that consumed more time than I thought possible and I still have mixed results. I found that in order supply those two items of information on these men I had to build a dossier of sorts on most of them, hoping that at some point this would lead to their final resting place.
These are my notes on this project and in some cases there is speculation involved. In those cases, I have made it apparent as such. You may see references to "Not found 1870 Ga census." This does not mean that the individual was not in Ga or enumerated in this census, it's merely my notes that he was not on the 1870 Ga census Index. He may have very well have been in another's household and many were. Sometimes the information on a soldier is quite detailed. I couldn't pass up the data if I found it. Other times, it's just the basics.

Some conclusions can be drawn from the data contained here. One obvious example is that in the winter/spring of 1862/63, there was a concerted effort at recruiting. This would have been in the period following the Batlle of Stone's River or Murphreesboro, depending on where your sympathies lie. Co. G took some significant losses in this battle and there can be seen a number of new enlistees in this time period. Pension data and some research revealed that most these men came from the Hall, Gwinnett, Forsyth county area.

There is an interesting story involving the flag of the 5th Ga. Inf. and it's color bearer Thomas Pryor "Tip" Barnes. The flag of the 5th Ga. Infantry carried by Thomas Pryor Barnes was made by a lady in Americus, Ga. from a silk wedding dress belonging to Mrs. Black - nee Curtis, the wife of Col. Thomas Black. He was killed in battle while leading his men and Tip Barnes as color bearer was right next to him. He had a great deal of admiration for his commander and when his first child (a son, he thought) was due to be born, he asked that the child be named after Col. Black. It was a girl and she was named Tommie Curtis Barnes. Her bio and picture can be found on this site along with more of the story of the flag. There is more!

Found 1880 Schley HH 10, age 41, wife Sarah, 45, 5 kids. He filed a pension application in Berrien Co. From the book "The Descendants of Mathew Battle England to Virginia 1647" written by Lynwood Deal Jordan, Sr. Lynwood is a great-grandson of Cullen Lazarus Battle. Sarah Battle, b. Sumter Co., GA ca 1835; md ca 1865 Lewis (Louis) Pilcher b Sumter Co., GA ca 1839; s/o Vinson Pilcher and Elizabeth Lester. They lived in the Lickskillet section of Schley Co. Legal documents in the courthouse in Ellaville Ga., give some clues of family activities. Lettie, Sarah's mother, lived with them during her older years. Lewis and Sarah were also very attentive to the family of her sister, Elizabeth Crutchfield. Elizabeth's husband, Edmund Crutchfield, was killed in the War Between the States. Lewis was guardian of the Crutchfield children until 1879. Lewis was also in the war. Lewis was appointed administrator of Elizabeth Battle Crutchfield's estate in 1870 and was dismissed as administrator in September 1877. There is a small cemetery in a pasture just south of Ellaville on land where the Battles first settled in GA. It is the Pilcher-Battle-Murphy cemetery. It is not known if Sarah and Lewis are buried there. Children: William Pilcher b. Schley Co., ca 1866. Elizabeth Pilcher b Schley Co., ca 1869, Lewis Pilcher b Schley Co., ca 1873, Ida Pilcher b Schley Co., ca 1875; md John Turner, James H. Pilcher b. Schley Co., ca 1878. The preceeding info supplied by Martha Rainey RAINEYM968@aol.com Although no one can be sure at this point, the pension filing leds me to believe that Lewis Pilcher might be buried in Berrien or Cook county. Pension application reveals the following: last application dated 21 Jan 1907, original appl. dated 15 Sept. 1905, resides Adel, Berrien Co., born 1837, Sumter Co., blindness (cataracts)& poverty basis for appl., resided in Berrien Co. yrs. 1894-1902, lives with children who have little home inheirited from their mother's estate, witnessed by Thaddeus Wiseman (Co.
