Benjamin Floyd Jackson
Aged: 18.6 years
He never married. He enlisted in Company B, 39th Georgia Infantry Regiment. He was killed at Chickamauga, Georgia, September 21, 1863. Tradition holds that Benjamin's mother had either a dream or a premonition that he had been severely wounded in fighting that was then waging at Chickamauga. She convinced her husband that they should go in search of Benjamin. They took a horse-drawn wagon from Murray County to Chickamauga. They actually found Benjamin but he was already dead. They brought his body back and buried him in a small family cemetery near their home. Benjamin's grave is well marked and easily accessible.
