Obituary of A. P. Adamson, Clayton County, Georgia.

The death of Comrade A. P. Adamson, at his home, Rex, Ga., on January 12, 1922, removes one highly esteemed in his community and by firends and comrades generally. He was born March 20, 1844, in Clayton County, Ga., and lived his more than threescore years and ten on the plantation where he was born.

Comrade Adamson entered the Confederate service in 1861 at the age of seventeen, and served in the ranks of the 30th Georgia Regiment until his capture, May 17, 1864. He was held prisoner at Rock Island, Ill., for several months, reaching home just a few days before the surrender. He was severely wounded at the battle of Chickamauga, which disabled him for active service for some time.

A leading man of his county, he filled many positions of honor and responsibility. He took and active interest in the organization of the Reunion Association of the 30th Georgia Regiment, and was an officer during the entire time of its existence. He was designated to write a historyof his old regiment, which is much appreciated by his comrades.

A faithful member of the Baptist Church, he served his Church as deacon for more than thirty years and as clerk since 1867, He was twice married, his last wife surviving him less than one month. He was a home man in the best sense of the word, a kind and affectionate husband and father. He leaves a large family of children to mourn his passing.
