Stories about Tobias Thompson

Biographical Sketch

    Private Tobias Thompson was born ca. 1838 in Georgia.

    In 1860 he, along with wife Rebecca and two daughters, were living near Chattahoochee, Gadsden County, Florida.  The census lists his occupation as carpenter with a personal estate of some $100.

    He enlisted on March 12th, 1862 at Quincy, Gadsden County, Florida in Captain Davidson’s Company; Tobias stated his age as 39.  He was left sick at Gadsden County when the company left the state, but rejoined it after June 30th in Tennessee.

    He took ill again and died at Knoxville, Tennessee on September 10th, 1862.  He was reported to be interred at a “local Bethel Cemetery”, the exact location is unknown.

    Find-a-grave provides information for a "Tobias Thompson" as being interred at North Prong Cemetery, Baxter, Baker County, Florida.  It may only be an "honorary marker", or he may have been "brought home".
