Son of Paul Chiles and Sarah Collins Chiles Perry, Thomas served the CSA as 1st Sergeant with the 3rd(Clack's)Tennessee Infantry, Company G under Colonel Calvin H. Walker.

Athough his gravestone records his death as 23 August 1861, according to his military records he died at Camp Trousdale on 21 August 1861. Abstracts from reported deaths in the Nashville Christian Advocate state he died of camp fever and was attended to by his father who stayed with him until he died. It was also stated in the article that Paul Chiles Jr. brought his son home for burial and he also soon died of
camp fever.

Thank you for your service and may you rest in peace.

Special thanks to Mary Bob McClain for her volunteer work with this family and many others.
