Thomas Hensley has a Washington Marlin Scroggins, son of Judy (Judiah Allen Scroggins and Richard M) listed in the 1860 Tallapoosa Co AL Census (Washington M, age 14). WM Scroggins, of New Hope, Madison Co. AL, was awarded the Southern Cross of Honor by the UDC [ http://www.oldhuntsville.com/p541.htm listed as #77].1870 Madison Co AL census lists "Wash and Pemmelia Scroggins" age 23, 20. All this strongly suggests that "WM" was the brother of George T Scroggins and James J Scroggins in Company A.

6. George Thomas3 Scroggins (Richard M.2, James1) was born 29Nov1844 in Georgia, and died 04Sep1924 in the home of daughter, Mrs. J.N. Brewer (formerly Mary Emma Scroggins---did she marry Jesse Brewer of Co. A?). He married Mary Jane Henderson 21-Oct-1868 in Tallapoosa Co. AL, daughter of Alvin Henderson and Lucinda Duck. George was the son of Richard M. Scroggins and Judiah Allen Scroggins. His father-in-law, Alvin Henderson, fought in Co. G, 34th AL Infantry . His wife's uncle, William M. Duck, served in Co. A 1st AL Infantry, while her other uncles, R.A.W. Duck and Manning L. Duck were in Co. G of the 34th AL.

Enlisted as private, Company A, First Alabama Infantry at Dadeville, AL. Was a P.O.W. of the U.S. Army. After the war he nearly starved during his walk back home. His obituary states he served 4 years in the Confederate War.

1st Alabama Infantry Regiment

The 1st Alabama Infantry regiment was the first to be organized under an act of the State legislature authorizing the enlistment of troops for 12 months. The companies rendezvoused at Pensacola in February and March 1861, and about the 1st of April organized and elected regimental officers. The men were recruited from Barbour, Lowndes, Macon, Pike, Talladega, Tallapoosa, and Wilcox counties. Transferred to the army of the Confederate States soon after, it remained on duty at Pensacola for a year, occupied chiefly in manning the batteries and taking part in bombardments on 23 Nov 61 and 1 Jan 1862. A detachment was in the night fight on Santa Rosa Island. As the oldest regiment in Confederate service, it was the first called on to reenlist for the war, at the end of the first year, and seven of the companies did so. Ordered to Tennessee, the regiment, 1000 strong, reached Island No. 10 on 12 March 1862, and it joined Gen'l Johnston at Alatoona. In Gen. James Cantey's Brigade, it fought at New Hope Church and was afterwards transferred to Gen. William Quarles' Brigade in which it served until war's end. It participated at Kennesaw Mountain, lost considerably at Peach Tree Creek. In the assault against enemy lines at Atlanta, 28 July, the regiment won fresh renown but lost half its strength. They moved with Gen'l John Bell Hood into Tennessee and lost heavily at Franklin and Nashville. Transferred to North Carolina, they fought at Averysboro and Bentonville, and about 100 men surrendered at Goldsboro. Upwards of 3000 names were on the rolls at different times during the war, including those companies that did not re-enlist.

Field officers: Cols. Henry D. Clayton (until reorganization); Isaiah G. W. Steedman (captured at Island No. 10 and Port Hudson); Lt. Cols. I. G. W. Steedman (promoted); Michael B. Locke (wounded, captured at Port Hudson); Majors Jere N. Williams (until reorganization), Samuel L. Knox (captured at Island No. 10 and Port Hudson, but escaped from the latter; wounded at Atlanta; KIA at Franklin while commanding regiment); and Adjutants S. H. Dent (resigned), Samuel D. Steedman (captured at Island No. 10 and Port Hudson). [Compiled by Ken Jones]
