Here his name is spelled Addison. He enrolled 19 Oct 1861 at Hiwassee Mines, Tenn., with Capt. John Goodman's Company, Gillespie Regiment Volunteers. According to the card above, he was 18 years old and signed on for 12 months.

Above, note the asterisk on "Gillespie's Regiment Volunteers."

Below is that asterisked information from the card.


Thomas Addison signed on 19 Oct 1861 and sometime during the Nov - Dec muster roll, he was already sick in the hospital.

The faint note at the bottom of the card says that hiis name "appears in column of names present [but] cancelled."


On the Jan - Feb company muster roll, he was sick in the hospital at Vicksburg. His name "appears in column of names present [but] cancelled."

By the next company muster roll, he has died in hospital. Death date is given as 9 Mar 1863.

The record from Vicksburg's Fisher Funeral Home has this information.
"Adison, Thomas, 22 Mar 1863; Co. A 43 Ten.; Cowans House; Grave 926."

The Sexton's record for the City Cemetery/Cedar Hill differs only in that it shows the place of death as Hospital #3, perhaps an error or another name for the Cowans House mentioned in the funeral home record.
