James Floyd Faircloth was mustered into the 57th Alabama Infantry from Coffee County, Alabama on the 10th of February, 1863 under command of Capt. Jesse O'Neal of Company G. He was 34 years old with a wife and four children aged two to ten. Appointed First Sergeant of his company from the ranks, he served until captured near Nashville by Union forces on December 16, 1864. He was transported to Louisville, Kentucky, thence to Camp Chase, Ohio, where he died of pneumonia on Feb. 14, 1865. His Grave # is 1234. His record shows that he was never paid during his entire service to the Confederacy. His widow, Temperance, died before pensions began for Confederate widows in Texas in 1899. Thus, no compensation was ever received for the faithful service and sacrifice of this family for the Confederacy.
