Stories about Noah L Thompson

Biographical Sketch

    This particular soldier presents a conundrum.  There is a "Noah L. Thompson" buried at in plot 253 of the Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery, Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio.  The marker identifies him being a member of Company K, 7th Alabama Cavalry.  A review of the CMSR for the 7th Regiment of Alabama Cavalry lists a "Noah L. Thompson"; however, there is no documentation of his enlistment date or location.  Oddly, the records (almost exclusively of his capture and transfer to Camp Chase) contain documents that identify him as a member of "Co. K 7th Ala Inf", and even more curious, "Co. K 7th Fla Inf".  There is also a single document for "Noah L. Thompson" in the CMSR for the 7th Regiment of Florida Infantry; the document states that, "Noah L. Thompson Private (illegible) 7 Florida Infantry Name appears as signature to an Oath of Allegiance to the United States, subscribed and sworn to at Chattanooga, Tenn., the day and year set opposite the several names. Place of residence Levy Co. Fla. Complexion (illegible) hair; black eyes gray height 5 ft. 9 in. July 14, 1864." Many believe that Noah L. Thompson in this grave is the same Noah L. Thompson who was born in Georgia in 1826 and moved to Florida ca. 1847-8.  He married Lydia M. Roberts on 17 August, 1848 at Duval County, Florida with the ceremony conducted by by Samuel S. Somers (JP) and recorded in the Clay County Florida archives, "Index of Duval (County, Florida) Marriages to 1860".  He, along with wife Lydia and daughters Caroline, Lucinda, and Margaret, are listed in the 1860 Federal Census for Levy County.
