    Abram Fackler Confederate Service Record
    Abram Fackler Confederate Service Record (10)
    Abram Fackler was at Gettysburg with Company I of the 53rd Virginia Infantry Regiment, "The Chatham Greys" of General Lou Armistead's Brigade of Pickett's Division. The sergeant of Company I was Sgt. Robert Tyler Jones, the grandson of former president James Tyler. Seventy-five yards from the stone wall at Gettysburg General Louis Armistead screamed over the sounds of battle to Colonel Rawley W. Martin and said "colonel, we can not stay here" Colonel "Billy Martin screamed back "then sir, we must go foreward. The Don Troiani painting of the battle of Gettysburg is an accurate depiction showing General Armistead leading his men to the stone wall with his hat on the tip of his sword, look close and behind him you will see the fluttering battle flags of the 53rd and 57th Virginia. For a few brief seconds in history, The "Chatham Greys" held the stone wall... and Sgt Robert Tyler Jones fell, Colonel Whitehead fell, Colonel R.W. "Billy" Martin fell with a shattered leg, General Louis Armistead was mortally wounded by the cannon.... and our boys grudgingly retreated.

    Abram Fackler enlisted as a private in Company I 53rd Virginia Infantry 22 Apr 1861 at Chatham, Virginia.
    Admitted to Chimborazo Hospital 17 Dec 1861 with typhoid fever.
    Returned to duty 24 Feb 1862.
    Discharged by order 17 May 1862 for being over 35.
    Reenlisted 4 Apr 1863 as Private, promoted to Corporal 30 Apr 1863.
    Promoted to Sergeant July 1863 (after Gettysburg).
    Captured at Five Forks 1 Apr 1865.
    Arrived at City Point 6 Apr 1865.
    Took oath of allegience 12 June 1865 at Point Lookout, Maryland, and was then released.

    Abram was captured at Five Forks along with his nephew, Joel Scates, who served in the same company. Both were prisoners at Point Lookout. Joel died of measles 24 April, While Abram took the oath and was released a couple months later.

      LOCATED, on rt. 703( THE IRISH ROAD), west, off rt. 29, at Tightsqueeze VA. Go past Chatham High School about 2 miles. About 1/4 mile past the Concord Methodist Church, on left. Cemetery is about 200' off rd., beside old 2 story house. This house is next door to the home of Mr. Edward and Clara Shelton, 681 Irish Rd. the current land owners. This land was once owned by Benjamin Riddle and Nancy Giles Riddle( my gggg-grandparents). I feel very certain that my ggg-grandparents are buried here or directly across the road. my ggg-grandfather was , Jesse McNeely, b.abt.1800 - d.1837, his wife was, Francis (fannie) Riddle McNeely, ( daughter of Benjamin and Nancy Riddle), b. abt. 1794 - d.jan.1823(at child-birth). Also, i believe that Benjamin and Nancy Riddle are buried here too. their son, Rueben Riddle also. for they all were living here at the time of their deaths. the farm was sold to a Mr. Anthony after Rueben died. Anthony was a minister at the OLD BANNISTER RIVER BAPTIST CH., which was about was about 1/2 mile farther down the rd., just past the river, on north side of road.

      these are the only marked graves i could find in the cemetery; (not kept up, but i plan to clean it up)
