Among the old residents who have been in long declining health for years has since your last news from this point died Thomas L. Earwood, (properly Arwood) a veteran of Stonewall Jackson’s who made the campaign of the valley, and there lost the limb which placed him on the list of state’s pensioners in the 19th Georgia, which with the 18th, was sent to Big Shanty.  He went out on 6th of August 1861 to Virginia; lay at Lynchburg till January, thence to Manassas; thence to Little Rockett, on Potomac, where he contracted a fever that detained him to hospital, over the Seven Days Battles.  It was at the Cedar Run, that he lost his leg on 9th August, 1862.  From hospital at Stanton, he returned to the field, after a furlough home, as a baggage guard, and at Charleston, April 1864, received his discharge.  As a volunteer in the capacity last named, he rejoined at Petersburg remaining until the 9th of August, 1864.  From Paulding, where he had lived since 1849, he came to Bartow in 1871.  He was born September 19, 1842 at Brushy Mountain, Cobb County. He was in his 69th year.  He was buried at Emerson.  His wife, Mrs. Mary Earwood, had a few months before preceded him to the tomb.
