~~ 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment ~~
(Private, Company G, 6th Alabama Volunteer Infantry Regiment) John was a Virginia born 21-year-old (born September 11, 1840 and died April 30 1907). He was a married farmer from near Autaugaville when he enlisted for 2 years on March 1, 1862 at Autaugaville, Autauga County Alabama. His first wife was Francis Deramus b. 9 Feb 1843 and d. 5 Oct 1877. His second wife was Blanche Ellen Golson b. 1846 d. 1921. He was first shown present at the Siege of Yorktown Virginia in April 1862. He served throughout the war as a teamster and was away from the unit much of the time hauling supplies, but was present at the Battle of Antietam/ Sharpsburg Maryland on September 17, 1862. I visited my ggGrandfather's grave in Autauga County a few weeks ago and there is a marker at the foot of his grave that says "Private, Co G, 6th Alabama Regiment, CSA". He was 21 when he signed up and I have an old photo of him when he was older. Sybil

On Feb. 5, 2003, James D. Allen, creator of this website passed away
There is no doubt that he would want the work on the
6th Alabama Infantry to go on.
With that in mind, this site is dedicated to him.
We miss you, Jimmy.
