Jesse enlisted 5 Apr 1862 in Henry County, Alabama and died 19 Sep 1863 in the Battle of Chickamauga.
I had been surfing around Footnote searching for a pension on another Jesse Ansley. Imagine my surprise when I found these two documents. I did have a death date on Jesse Carter Ansley, and it did match what was here, BUT I had no "reliable" source for my death date. I had guessed that it was civil war related in my notes, I had not really done anything to follow up on my note. Now I have the images to prove that my "hunch" was correct!
