Birth: unknown
Death: Jan. 6, 1866

Georgian who served for the Union Army.

From the blog "Virtual Goshen - The Collins Family Reunion:"

"The war officially ended in the Spring of 1865 but the hatreds and the violence continued. Henry Ledford had traveled north of the Ohio River to avoid the war. However, he eventually enlisted in the 144th Indiana Infantry. Returning home to Pickens County, he was gunned down and killed in the streets of the county seat of Jasper by former Confederates. When the Pickens County grand jury convened after the war, under the protection of federal troops, the jury men lamented on the necessity of the people having to carry guns to walk the streets of Jasper safely."
