Birth: May 26, 1829
Edgefield County
South Carolina, USA
Death: May 30, 1864
Fulton County
Georgia, USA

Shemuel Walter Ouzts, Sr. is the son of Frances (Frannie) TIMMERMAN and George Ouzts, the Patriarch of the George Ouzts Line of the family of Elizabeth HARLING and George Peter Utz (now Ouzts) of Hoffenheim Germany and the Edgefield District SC.

He married Mary Elizabeth (Lizzie) HERIN, daughter of Harriet MOBLEY and John Herin. They had four children: James Tolbert II, William Mobley, Rev. Jesse Lee, and Shemuel Walker, Jr.

Died 30th May at Fair Grounds Hospital GA, Shemuel Walter Ouzts, in the 35th year of his age. He had been in the Confederate service for more than two years, discharging his duties as a soldier faithfully. On the 16th of May he was wounded in the leg so severly as to require amputation. He had been the subject of a disease consquent on camp life which assumed a typhoid form, and this, together with the shock from his wound, caused his death. He has left a stricken widow to whom he was most tenderly attached, and four little boys, but he has left to them the priceless legacy of a pure and spotless memory. To his father and mother he was a most devoted son, and he most effectionately regarded his twin brother, the only remaining one of those who have battled in this unprecedented, unholy, and most cruel warfare. The Chaplin of his Regiment visited him in his illness, and on conversing with him, declared that he never met with one so composed, so willing to die . . . His last words to his bereaved wife were, "Remember that you are mortal . . . meet me in Heaven." The church to which he belonged will long miss in its choir the beautiful voice of him who now occupies the Soldier's grave. - S.A.L.
