13th Tenn Cavalry, Co. H


Maryville Enterprise, (Blount Co. TN) August 12, 1931

"Another Civil War Veteran Dead---A letter from Mrs. T.W. Mallonee announces the death of her husband, 86, at their home in Clever, Missouri, July 23, 1931. Mr. & Mrs. Mallonee were formerly of Blount County.

Thomas W. Mallonee, Andrew Goddard, Billy Whetsell and H.T. Clemens enlisted in Co. H. 13th Tenn. Cav., in October, 1863. We were in Knoxville during the time of the siege. It is hard to think of "Queenly Knoxville" ever having the distress it had during time of the siege.

There was a pontoon bridge across the river. On the south side of the river near the bridge were acres literally covered with dead horses and mules.

After the siege we footed it to Camp Nelson, Kentucky. From there we went by train to Nashville. We were mounted and equipped. During the summer of 1864 we came to East Tennessee. Late in the summer we were camped several weeks at Bulls Gap.

One Saturday night we marched all night. On a by-road to Greeneville, we surprised and killed the raider, Gen. John H. Morgan. Andy Campbell of Capt. Wilcox, Co. G. 13th Tenn. Cav., killed the raider.

The 13th Tenn. Cav. was on the famous raid, and within a few hours of the capture of Jefferson Davis. The last camp of the 13th was at Sweetwater, Tenn.
T.W. Mallonee and the writer were discharged at Knoxville, Sept. 5, 1865.

Sixty-three years ago T.W. Mallonee and Nancy Morrison were married at the home of her mother, Mrs. Tilda Gibson, by Mrs. Gibson's brother, Esq. James Waters. I was at the wedding and it was this Mrs. Mallonee who wrote me the letter." ---Respectfully, H.T. Clemens, 823 Shofford Ave., Spokane, Washington, August 6, 1931.
