Service information from Henderson.1 Wound and hospital detail from the Patient List 2 as J.T. Adams. He's also found on a casualty list for the Regiment printed in the Southern Recorder (Milledgeville, GA) on 21 October 1862.
It is likely he is the Joshua Franklin Adams (1839-1915) buried in Commerce, TX [gravesite on Findagrave].
