Pvt. Wilson Carrington – Company A “Madison Greys”

Wilson Carrington Co A

Born in Madison County Georgia in 1843. On July 11, 1861, he and his brother, Willis Carrington, enlisted in Company A “Madison Greys” at Madison County, GA. Wilson was killed at the Battle of Crampton’s Gap near Burkittsville, MD on September 14, 1862. Willis died of disease near Suffolk, Va earlier in 1862.

Wilson’s place of burial is unknown, but the remains of many Confederate soldiers who were killed at Crampton’s Gap and Sharpsburg and those who died later in hospitals, were removed to Washington Confederate Cemetery in Hagerstown, MD. I’d like to hope that he too has found a final resting place there.
