Lee Jackson Hartley, Sr. served in the army of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. He was on the muster roll of Company F, 57th Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry from Crawford County.
He, along with his family, moved to Florida in December of 1870, according to his application for a pension as a Confederate soldier. He settled in Orange County, Florida, close to his older brother, Daniel and his family, who had moved to the area twenty to twenty-five years earlier.
He made a positive impact on the area, being listed as a merchant in the 1885 State of Florida Census. The death of his wife in 1898 and his declining health (listed as rheumatism and a bad heart) contributed to his having to apply for a pension in 1899. He had to update the application several times over the next few years. A couple of letters in his application file are written by his commanders when he served the CSA where it is said that he "rendered good and efficient services and never deserted the Confederate Services".
