    Seeking military records of Amanda Branch Johnson Jones

    Janet Saltsgiver Newbie

      Where do I find information on a Civil War nurse who served for the Confederacy? I am looking for information on Amanda Branch Johnson Jones who served as a nurse for the Confederacy. She was born in Gibson County, Tennessee, later lived in Arkansas after her first marriage. Her first husband died during the Civil War and she remarried to Luke Jones. They came to Texas in the mid 1870s and purchased a general store from my Great-Great Grandfather William Spencer Ethridge. Amanda died not long afterward and Luke Jones not long after her in the late 1870s. Both are buried in Rock Church Cemetery, near Tolar, Hood County, Texas. Just wondered if there are plaques or memorials for the nurses who served?
