James A Taylor - enlisted by Col. Colquitt at Yorktown, Virginia, in Capt. Cleveland's Company E, 6th Georgia Infantry Regiment (Crawford County Greys) on 28 Jul 1861. He is last shown present with his company on the Nov.-Dec. 1861 muster roll, noted as "Sick in Camp." The Jan.-Feb. 1862 muster roll states "Died Feb. 13, 1862." Subsequent cards and letters in his file indicate that he must have been sent back to Georgia due to his illness between 31 Dec 1861, and 13 Feb 1862. It is noted that he died of pneumonia at New Hospital, Stark, Ga. His father, James M Taylor, made claim to all money due him on 13 Dec 1862, stating that his son had neither wife nor child nor children. His claim was finally paid by the Confederate government on 26 Aug 1863. It totaled $96.76, including one month and 13 days pay @ $11 per month ($15.76), $50 previously unpaid enlistment bounty, and $25 for clothing.
