CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS, ROSE HILL CEMETERY, COLUMBIA, MAURY COUNTY, TENNESSEE

VETERANS OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES ARMY
ADCOCK, Allen A., 1840 - 1921. Military marker: "Corp Co. I 16 Tenn Cav. Confederate States Army." (Note: MCTC states that he was buried in an unmarked grave about 1986.
pg.60; Allen Adcock of Columbia was among the prisoners of Col. Voorhees' 48th Tennessee Infantry. His brother Robert of the same command was sick, but dreading prison hospital remained in quarters. Al drew rations regularly for himself and Robert, as as Robert could not eat all his, Al his the surplus. He made a ladder from the boxes sent by friends with supplies, so as to more conveniently get to his "store room" at the top of his shack, keeping the ladder hid in his bunk. The plan of escape was to use this ladder for getting over the fence and then trust to luck. They waited several days (or nights) hoping that Robert would get well enough to accompany them, but Robert got worse. By watching the cracks in the oter fence it could be seen when and where the sentries on the outside met on their beats and reversed. One dark, rainy night in ______ 1862, those in the secret met noiselessly at the proper place; when the sentinels had reversed and marched off a few paces the men began dropping over the fence. Of the MLA Dick McKay, Dave Harbison, John A. Pigg, and Thomas H. B. Johnson succeeded in getting over before the guards discovered them and began firing. Those on the inside who had failed to get over slipped back to quarters. The prison was in a commotion. The officials made a fruitles search for the means of escape and for those who had been out of the bunks; all who had wet feet were punished, but Al Adcock had put on a pair of socks over his shoes. Al was "lying" in his bunk, the ladder concealed underneath, and as his shoes were dry he secaped punishment if he did not escape from prison. Those of the MLA who escaped that night made their way south and reached maury County after a month of great dangers and hardships. After that experience the officials put a plank walk near the top of the fence so that the sentinels could see inside the prison as well as outside.)

Anderson, and that as Forrest was starting up the street to follow Gould, the General took this pistol; but jsut before reaching the south pavement heard that Gould was mortally wounded, and with some of his officers, went back across the street to Dr. Sam Frierson's, who was post surgeon.;
pg.240-241 " IN THE DAYS OF THE PAST - - MAURY DEMOCRAT 8 APRIL 1897. From the pen of Wm. J. Andrews, who recently died: "In 1864 or 5 Dol. Dan McCoy of the 175th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, was in command of this post. One day he received information from Algie Hodge, then a youth, who had been out hunting, that a woman had been hung on the old Pulaski road. I was then a Justice of the Peace. The Colonel sent me word to come to his quarters, which I did. he imparted to me the information he had just received. He also ordered two horsed to be saddled which we mounted and roade over tot where the woman was hanging. Around her neck was a limb of an oak tree--which was twisted and tied. Her limbs and body were lying up against an embankment, and both of her hands were resting on the ground. The Colonel and myself approached sufficiently near to touch her. Her hands and face were covered with watery blisters. I remarked to the Colonel that I was of the opinion that she had small-pox. Col. Dan accepted my impression and made haste to return to town. Upon reaching town I instructed B.M. (Dock) Gillespie to summon a jury of inquest and a physician to proceed to the place to hold an inquest. I returned to the scene with Dr. J.M. Towler, which we reached some time in advance of the other. The Doctor pronounced it a case of small-pox and in a dangerous stage. One of the jury coming up in the meantime and hearing the opinion of the Dr. immediately left and meeting the others imparted to them the Dr.'s opinion, when all made flight. Arriving in town they indulged in plenty of corn juice, one expecially, the first who arrived at the body. That jury became terribly scattered and alarmed. Some time elapsed before they were again gotten together. In the meantime I visited the Federal small-pox hospital near by, on the farm of Col. Morgan, met the surgeon in charge and informed him of the hanging woman. He then related to me that one of the inmates, a woman, had made her secape about midnight. The while all wer asleep, the nigh-watch took advantage of their slumbers and went in the spring to procure a fresh bucket of water. Upon his return the woman was missing. The surgeon accompanied me to where she was hanging and identified her. The remains were buried in Rose Hill cemetery by James Henderson in the plot upon which the Federals were interred. When the remains of the Federal soldiers were taken up and removed from here I am informed by a gentleman who was present and knew of her resting place, that her remains were placed in four different coffins. Rumor said the woman was a refugee from Alabama. She was accompanied by a young child, and they were making their way to Culleoka to find some relatives at that place. She was taken with small-pox, placed in the hospital and ended her existence as detailed, while in a delirious condition. The death of the child followed soon after, someone giving it a poisoned biscuit inlaid with butter and arsenic, by whom or for what purpose never came to light. Another killing took place here while Col. Orr was in command. A federal soldier mounted upn a gray horse rode into a saloon and with a drawn revolver demanded of the bar-keeper drinks for himself and several other soldiers, the sale of which was strictly prohitibed by the military authorities. While parleying abou the drinks a Federal Captain, actin officer of the day, entered the saloon and soldier on the horse observing his approach, wheeled and rode out. Upon entering the square he put spurs to his horse and rode rapidly away. Upon the square and west of the courthouse stood a flag -pole which he ran against striking one to his legs and came near unseating him. On the horse flew and the rider struck against the signpole of the Nelson House, throwing him upon his head and dashing his brains upon the street. The horse going on, dashed through the doors of the hotel and entered the reception room.
I never learned the name of the man killed, or the Captain who was the officer of the day. Wm. J. Andrews." ) Block C

Lee Bullock was the Provost Marshal, his office being where Turner's grocery is now, and which building had not then been lengthened; in the rear was a little frame or log building occupied by an old negro named "Gum" Kennedy". Col. Bullock writes me from Washington that he had previously heard that Forrest had accused Gould of cowardice, and that the Lieutenant had demanded an investigation which the General was not inclined to grant. When Col. Bullock saw the excitement on the street he ran out, meeting Gould, running and weakening from the loss of blood. Later seeing Forrest across the street he met the General just as the latter got off the pavement there, and tried to dissuade Forrest, saying; "I think you need not pursue Gould for I believe that he is fatally wounded; he is bleeding profusely and losing strength with every step." Forrest replied angrily: "Get out of my way, I am mortally wounded and will kill the man who has shot me." Mr. A. Nick Akin, now Clerk and Master of our Chancery Court, says that just then Forrest seized two pistols from an officer and crossed the street. Col. Bullock says that Forrest went down the alley to "Gun" Kennedy's house, but learning that Gould was in the tailor shop, he came back through the alley and went around to the front of the shop. The late William J. Andrews told me that he had that day loaned a revolver to Capt. John G. Anderson, and that as Forrest was starting up the street to follow Gould, the General took this pistol; but just before reaching the south pavement heard that Gould was mortally wounded, and with some of his officers, went back across the street to Dr. Sam Frierson's, who was post surgeon."

Looney was made Major and the regiment camped at Camp Cheatham, Robertson County. Time wore on. Lt. Col. Sevier drilled the regiment and one day the papers were filled with the news that Gen. Irwin McDowell had crossed the Potomac on his way to Richmond. The First Regiment had been sworn into the State service in the Sulphur Bottom by Bushrod Johnson. Col. Haney had the Regiment drawn up in line on a hillside, to vot on the proposition whether the men wanted to go to Virginis or not. Major Looney stood in fromt of his old company, the Maury Greys, 110 stone. He looked like a Roman Senator, or one of Napoleon's Marshals. My friends, said he, the enemy has crossed the Potomac River, and is now marching on the sacred soil of Virginia, and our little army under Beauregard is too weak in numbers to meet them, I rear. Shall be we go and help to drive the pround invader back, or continue to lie here and rot with measles while the noble old mother of States is being polluted with the tread of the vadal invader; Who wants to go to Virginia.? I want to go to Virginia, said the smooth faced sixteen year old boy. I vote to go to Virginia ! That boy was Bill Whitthorne. His cry was electrical. In a moment everybody was crying to go to Virginia. I remember the scene as if it were yesterday. We may have to give up our guns, said Major Looney, but I am in favor of going if we have to fight the enemy with flint lock muskets, or even rocks. Lute Irvine stood above the company and shook his fists, as much as to say he would fight them with his fist. Bill Whitthorne had on girl's shoes, and a large flaming neck-tie, and went around the company, crying to each soldier, Let's go to Virginia. It was a great day, and never to be forgotten. The regiment all voted to go, and they carried their guns, the incomparable Springfield Rifle until they surrendered them to Sherman on the 26th of April 1865, except such as were shot to pieces in the terrible battles they were in. Not one was ever surrendered until April 26, 1865. Signed: AN OLD BOY."
