Capt Benjamin F. Eddins
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 12, 1813
South Carolina, USA
Death: Apr. 10, 1865
Tuscaloosa County
Alabama, USA

The 41st AL Infantry, under which Capt. B.F. Eddins served. He was the only Tuscaloosa native to die in Tuscaloosa County during the Civil War (18611865),. (Flag in AL Hist. Archives, courtesy of).
-----------------------------------------
According to the 1860 census, Capt. Eddins had several more children: Mary, 17 years old; Sarah, 16 yo; Laura, 14 yo; Emma, 12 yo; Harriet, 10 yo; Anna 7 yo; and Marion, 4 yo. This large family has a lot of living descendants, and they would probably like to see the name of their ancestor. I am a descendant of Harriet.
Thanks for maintaining this page.

He is listed in some old church records after the war, and so is remembered here for all his service to his country and fellowman.
