Rank at enlistment: Captain Enlistment Place: Newton County, GA State Served: Georgia Survived the War?: Yes

Sources: Roster of Confederate Soldiers of Georgia 1861-1865.

Georgia, Confederate Pension Applications, 1879-1960 Record for James M Summers filed 9/20/1905. Served 3 years in CSA. Now indigent and old age.

Note: His marker indicates that he died in 1910 whereas other sources indicate that he died 27 Feb 1915 which would be consistent with his Obituary which says he was 84 when he died. In addition, he is in the April 1910 Census. Thus it appears that the marker may be in error??
