Jeff Carithers' ancestor.

My great great grandfather was Isham T. Mathis.  He was born February 6, 1829  in Gwinett County, Georgia. He entered the service on May 16, 1862  when he traveled to Athens, Georgia and enlisted as  a Private.  He died of disease on January 7, 1863 in a field hospital at Tunnel Hill Georgia.  After the war his remains were removed and placed in one of many graves that are marked as unknown  in the Marietta Confederate Cemetery in Marietta, Georgia.  His daughter Winnie Mathis Burgess is my great grandmother; she was the wife of my great grandfather Crawford Taylor Burgess.
