Thomas Spalding McIntosh was a son of William Jackson McIntosh (1782-1863) and Maria Hillary (1788-1862); he was the grandson of Major-Gen. John McIntosh (d. 1826) who served with distinction in the American Revolution and the War of 1812.

He was a lawyer. He married Maria Bethiah Morris on July 3, 1861 in Richmond County, Georgia. Fourteen months later, Capt. McIntosh was killed at the Battle of Sharpsburg, in the deadliest battle of the Civil War.

"After his untimely death ... [Maria] was said to be almost deranged." As Charles Colcock Jones, Jr. wrote on October 1st, 1862, "She had concentrated all her affections upon him, and her heart, bereft of his loves, is desolate beyond description." -- Children of Pride.

McIntosh's family had his body removed from the Sharpsburg, Maryland burial site and interred at Laurel Grove Cemetery, Savannah, GA, on Oct. 25, age
