James M. Adams
No Portrait Available
Co. A. 14 Ark. Inf.
Nov 24, 1907
Aged 68 Yrs.
REINTERRED FROM SECTION F, ROW A, SPACE 32 DURING RENOVATION IN SUMMER 1995
John M. Adams was in the 4th Battalion Arkansas Infantry Company A as a corporal musician. This is not the same J.M. Adams that is buried at the Texas State cemetery. James M. Adams was in the 14th Regiment Arkansas Infantry (Powers') Company B. This information is supported by his muster roles on file at the Texas State Cemetery and the Texas State Library and Archives. James Adams' Headstone says that he was in the 14th Arkansas Infantry Company A, but in his pension application (#5118) there is no mention of any Company. James Adams was a private when he entered service and a private upon completion of his service in the C.S.A. This is supported by the National Park Service Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System. The information supplied and researched from the aforementioned sources support the claim that the J. M. Adams that is buried at the Texas State Cemetery is James M. Adams and not John M. Adams.
The above information is important because during the renovation, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission, upon relocation of the casket and body of J. M. Adams, recorded him as John M. Adams (Page 92, Confederate Veterans at Rest, Archeological and Bio-archeological Investigations at the Texas State Cemetery, Travis County, Texas Reports of Investigations, Number 107 Principal Investigator Douglas K. Boyd, Texas Antiquities Committee Permit No. 1549, 1996).
