|Eugene Terrill Kingsley (1842 - 1861)
Somewhere during the march to Meadow Bluff or possibly on the move forward to Sewell Mountain, West Virginia, Private Eugene Kingsley came down with typhoid fever and was placed in a Meadow Bluff home that had been converted into an impromptu hospital. It was there on October 9th, 1861, the day after his 19th birthday that Eugene Kingsley passed away. It is believed that his family made arrangements to ship Eugene's remains back to Georgia where his brother and sister buried him beneath an impressive monument at Cohutta. The monument is inscribed "To the memory of Eugene T Kingsley who died in the service of his country in West Va the 9th day of 1861, Aged 19 years and 1 day.
