General Notes (Husband)

Old family papers in possession of Teresa Jones Thigpen show Edgar as being 5 feet 9 inches tall, sallow complexion, light hair & eyes.

He fought in the Civil War in Co. G infantry, Hampton Legion. He was enlisted near Columbia, SC by Capt. Black August 19, 1861. Hampton legion was organized June 12, 1861 with an infantry Battalion of eight companies A to H, a Calvary battalion of 4 companies A to D, and an Artillery battalion of 2 companies A & B. Edgar was a private in Co. G Infantry. He was in the CSA General Hospital Charlottesville, VA. from December 10, 1861 till January 18, 1862 when he was transferred to Richmond for discharge. He was readmitted to The Charlottesville hospital on Jan. 21, 1862. One record shows constriction of fingers, several others show Paralysis. One record show shim being discharged Feb. 2, 1862 and another shows Feb. 5, 1862. His discharge certificate describes Edgar as 5'9" tall, sallow complexion, light eyes, light hair, occupation farmer. He was paid $11.00 a month. When he was discharged the CSA owed him from Nov. 1, 1861 till Feb. 5, 1862. He wasn't paid any allowance to get from Charlottesville, VA. to Spring Hill. He was not paid what he was owed until June 20, 1862. He was paid $34.83 back pay plus $4.00 for clothing that he did not draw. I wonder if he had to wait around Charlottesville until June to get paid or did he come on home and they brought it to him in June. He is shown on the 1901 Confederate Pensioners List; E.S. Jone, Sumter, Co. G, Hampton Legion, age 71.

He lived in the Spring Hill section of Sumter District which is now part of Lee County.
