What is your best guess why Confederate Soldier Jefferson Moore Adams, from the Georgia 7th Regiment, 1861 moved West to Louisiana after General Sherman burned Georgia to the ground?JMA moved in 1866 to Pointe Coupee Parish (County) which is 63 miles West of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
He stopped at the intersection of the Mississippi River and the Atchafalaya River.
Georgia was burned and he had to move? He stopped cause he got tired of travelling? He stopped cause he got tired of crossing rivers? He stopped cause the area was good land for farming?
If you use any type of Genealogy Program I dont mind sending what I have to anyone.
