Notes for Walton D Adams:
Walton D. Adams apparently tried to hide his identity after the Civil War, at least to the census takers. After he was paroled from the Union POW camp he went home. His father had died a year earlier and his wife was sick. They had 500 ac. to take care of, and all of the men were in the Army. Family history tells
of Walton hiding under his mothers long hooped skirt while she sat on him like a stool. The Yankees were supposedly searching for him but my guess is he was actually hiding from the Rebs, who were looking for him after deserting.He was finally captured in 1864 and returned to a camp of instruction in Dekalb Co. He used the name Nathan D. Adams on the 1870 and 1880 census
