J.J. AKA Pvt. Jessie J. Clements
My Great Grandpa Pvt. Jessie J. Clements was born in Greene Co. GA Dayes on Tombstone are correct. I can rely on his CSA State of Georgia Pension Records. They have the correct birthdate, location and place of residence when processed the first time in 1899. The State of Georgia required him to reapplied each year. He did so for 4 or 5 years. I also have his death record that confirms his CSA service. His birthdate and rank are correct. In addition his burial site is very near to where he lived the last years of his life.

From these records I now know for sure that he enlisted at Milledgeville, GA in May 1861 into Brown Rifles, Putnam County, Company B 3rd. Georgia. He served with them for 14 months. He was injured at Manassas building breastworks. I feel sure his injury occurred before 30 Aug 1862 when Manassas # 2 was fought. One can conclude that he was discharged about June or July 1862 or 14 months of service. According to his pension applications he re-enlisted in Pruden's Battery, Georgia Artillery (State Troops) His second service was from 1 July 1864 till his discharge at Augusta GA 20 Feb 1865.

I have found his CSA Service Record, a total of 4 pages, for his second tour of duty with the Pruden's Battery, Georgia Artillery (State Troops). It is recorded on page 4 that he was a POW who surrender and was paroled on 18 May 1865 at Augusta, GA.

Of considerable interest to be was a "First Hand Account Condensed History of the 3 RD Georgia Volunteer Infrantry" by Charles H. Andrews ca. 1885. Georgia Archives. I found this in an e-book "Georgia 3rd Infantry Regiment" Confederate Regimental History Series. It was noted in the section on Company B 3rd Regiment that "No muster roll of this company July 1, 1861, to May 1,1864." Therefore only some of the members of this outfit was listed.

The last record details my Grandpa death and burial location. All parts of this record match.
