Adam Jacoby Slemmer
Birth: Jan. 24, 1829
Death: Oct. 7, 1868

Civil war Union Brigadier General. His most significant Civil War contribution came before the war even started. In January 1861, he ignored CSA pressure to surrender his command, which was stationed at Fort Barrancas, Pensacola, Florida. He instead moved it to the strategic Fort Pickens, Santa Rosa Island. This move ensured Union control of the Gulf of Mexico throughout the war. He later led a battalion of Regular Army troops at the Battle of Murfreesboro.

Per photo volunteer, 5/22/13: He is buried in the same lot as his mother, Margaretta. Lot B-91 contains Adam's brother, William, William's wife, Hannah, their daughter, Mary B., and her husband, S. Francis. In Lot B-94 is Elizabeth Slemmer, Adam's brother, Henry T's, first wife. I visited Montgomery Cemetery on May 11, 2013 and the tombstones of Adam, William, and Hannah had been vandalized. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
