Re: Death of J.H. Wall After Surrender; Fannin Cou


All that I have was a cemetery listing for Walton County, Ga., in the dated country history, and then I later visited the little cemetery at Jersey Methodist Church. It is still very much a rural community, although the Atlanta surburban growth has reached the area. Jersey, in Walton County, Georgia, is located about 2 hours west of where I live, in S.C. The tombstone does not indicate an age or date of birth, understandable since Wall was apparently just passing through. I do not know of any of the particulars of his death. I am going to post an inquiry on the Georgia board to see if it provokes a response.

On another item of interest to me, I am trying to get information on Solomon Dee Chapman, a veteran of Company E (Bozeman Guards), Hampton Legion (S.C.) Infantry. He enlisted in that company on 15 Jun 61, but was discharged for disability from tuberculosis on 10 Sep 61. He subsequently reenlisted in E/16 S.C. on 27 Nov 61, and served in that unit throughout the war, receiving his parole at Greensboro, N.C. on 1 May 65, upon the surrender of Joe Johnston's army. Chapman was born in Grteenville District, S. C. on 1 Feb 44, was living in Anderson County, S.C. in 1870, later moved to Indian Territory (apparently through Texas), and died at Chickasha, Oklahoma (Terr; or had Oklahoma become a state by March?) 4 Mar 1907. He is buried in Rosehill Cemetery, Chickasha. I would like to locate an obituary or other information on him.

Happy New Year!
