Ervin Elrade Addy
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 2, 1829
Death: May 5, 1862

Ervin Elrade Addy was the son of Jacob Addy and Mary Rawl Addy, born in South Carolina and raised in near Haralson, Coweta, Georgia. He married Amanda Dyson (#53743257), daughter of James and Eliza Dyson, and fathered three sons, Alva (#18033340), Edgar Samuel (#14361675) and Emmette (#50279016). He enlisted March 4, 1862, as a private in Company 'A' of the 41st Georgia Volunteer Infantry Army of Tennessee, CSA, Coweta, Georgia in the Civil War under Capt. Stallings and Col. McDaniel. He died 2 months and 1 day later of complications after the measles. After being informed of his death, his wife wrote this wonderful poem:

Farewell, dear husband, alas,
We part to meet on earth no more;
Thy spirit to a brighter spot has passed,
Where earthly troubles will ne'er reach thee more.

Farewell, my dearest, while I mourn thy loss,
Heavenly stars bright o'er thee shine;
The moon's bright rays, now gentle and soft,
O'er thy silent grave decline.

Oh, God, I know that 'tis thy will,
My loss on earth should be his gain;
I feel that he is with thee still,
And with thee he will e'er remain.

My deepest thoughts now linger round
That heap of lifeless clay;
I think of thee - my heart bows sadly down,
While I know thou art not, today.

Oh, God, I ask thy help today,
This broken heart to cheer;
From one thou hast taken away,
One I loved and held most dear.

Farewell, loved one, alas, adieu!
Now must I part with you, o' how?
With one so noble, kind and true!
God have mercy on me now.

Amanda ~ July 27, 1862
