References & notes

His service from his Compiled Service Records,1 online from fold3, with his first name from a pay record of 17 June 1862; thanks to Miles Krisman for the pointer to him. His gravesite is on Findagrave.

He is easily confused with Francis D Meadows (c.1842-) of Lowndes County, son of James and Ellen, who served in Company M, 6th Alabama Infantry.
