John T Close
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1847
Carroll County
Ohio, USA
Death: May 11, 1864
Rocky Face
Whitfield County
Georgia, USA

John was 17 yrs old when he enlisted & died at the Battle of Rocky Face Ridge in Georgia, according to several souces he was buried in a "mass grave" there on the ridge. He may have been moved to Resaca, Ga and buried as an unknown solider.

also another interesting fact: Alonzo Bennett also was there, he survived but was later taken as a POW and died in the Danville prison.

John's nephew Asa Close & Alonzo's cousin Arabella Bennett(my Greatgrandparents) married 30 yrs later.

Alonzo's father Aaron & Arabella's Grandfather Robert Bennett were brothers
