Asa Chandler Fortson

M, ID# 15985, b. 21 August 1847, d. 24 January 1906
  • Obituary*: CONSUMPTION ENDS LIFE OF A. C. FORTSON
    All that was mortal of Mr. A. C. Fortson passed into the great beyond yesterday morning, just as the sun was ascending the eastern horizon, consumption being the cause. About a year ago, Mr. Fortson contracted a severe case of the grip, which settled on his lungs, and which finally developed into tuberculosis. Since that illness he has been gradually sinking, but for the past two months he has been confined to his bed. He was a man fifty-eight years of age, and leaves a wife and eleven children, to-wit: Mrs. A. C. Fortson, Mrs. Gussie Conwell, Mrs. Emma Vickery, Misses Sallie Lou, Edna and Jessie Fortson, and Messrs. T. J., James M., Willie, Joe, George and Fred Fortson. Mr. Fortson was a man well known throughout the county for his quiet, unassuming manner, but was, nevertheless, considered a man of a very strong character. He was a member of the Baptist Church at Harmony, and died a confirmed believer in that faith. The interment will take place this afternoon at the Hall burying ground. Mr. E. L. Sisk will conduct the funeral services. Mr. Fortson resided near Goss, where his family were surrounded with all the conforts of life-his slogan being to properly care for his family.18
  • Note*: He entered the Confederate Army in Elbert County, Georgia on 25 Jul 1864 at eighteen years of age and was honorably discharged at Augusta, Georgia in April 1865. He fought in the Battles of Jonesboro, Honey Hill, and Atlanta. "All that was mortal of Mr. A. C. Fortson passed into the great beyond yesterday morning [24 Jan 1906], just as the sun was ascending the eastern horizon, consumption being the cause. About a year ago, Mr. Fortson contracted a severe case of the grip, which settled on his lungs, and which finally developed into tuberculosis. Since that illness he has been gradually sinking, but for the past two months he has been confined to his bed. . . . Mr. Fortson was a man well known throughout the county for his quiet, unassuming manner, but was, nevertheless, considered a man of a very strong character. . . . Mr. Fortson resided near Goss, where his family were surrounded with all the comforts of life--his slogan being to properly care for his family." One source says he was born on 21 May 1847 in Elbert County, Georgia.9,19,20,21
