  • _DATE: Sep 13, 1860
  • _SCBK: Y
  • _PRIM: Y
  • Event: Military Service 1863-1864 Gwinnett County, Georgia
  • Note:
    Ambrose served in the military enlisting as a private in Co. K, 2nd Regiment, Georgia Infantry Reserves, CSA, in 1863.  He later served in Co. C of the same regiment.

    Reserve regiments were a different category than the State Guard or the regular volunteer infantry. The Reserve term designated a force that was raised under a specific call of the governor for 6- months' troops for Aug. 63 to Feb 64. They were full- time soldiers for the duration (from enlistment), but were limited by age (young or old) and/or infirmity to performing limited tasks: prison camp guards, local security forces, hunting deserters/draft dodgers, combatting cavalry raids, supplementing CSA regiments in their home states, etc.

  • Event: Death Note
  • Note:
    Ambrose's date of death is unknown, but he did not appear on the 1870 or 1880 census reports anywhere in the United States under the name Ambrose Bradford.  It is possible he died during his Civil War service, but no documentation of that was found on the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System Web site, or in the Georgia Civil War Soldier Index, an electronic database on the Georgia GenWeb Archives Web site.

    However, his mother's obituary stated that two of her children "preceeded her to the Glory World...," so one might assume that Ambrose was one of those children who predeceased his mother, who died 30 Aug 1874.
