Carson Gober

Obituary of F. A. Gober, Georgia.

F. A. Gober was born in Jackson County, Ga., January 12, 1838. In 1861, when the call was made for volunteers to defend our homes and loved ones, he responded to the call and joined Company I, 29th Volunteers. He participated in practically all the battles in which his regiment was engaged, was severely wounded in the battle of Chickamauga, and was disabled and excused from service for one hundred days. After this he returned to his command and served until the battle of Franklin, Tenn., where he was captured and held as a prisoner until the surrender in 1865. Comrade Gober's chief delight was to call his children around him and tell of his experience in camp life and of the many dangers and hardships he endured, instilling into them the righteousness of the glorious Southern cause. He was a charter member of Camp John H. Morgan, No. 1330, U. C. V., loyal to the Camp and to his comrades.

On January 5, 1920, he crossed over the river and joined his comrades on the other side. Like a fully ripe sheaf of wheat, he was gathered to his Master. His body was laid to rest in Black's Creek Church Cemetery. Thus one by one those noble heroes are passing away, their ranks thinning day by day.

[Gee L. Carson, Sr., Adjutant Camp John H. Morgan, No. 1330.]
