CROSS, A. J., 1st Lt. (resigned, 26 Nov 61) [Note: He was Sgt. A.J. Cross Jr. of company G, 20th Alabama Inf. He was a 1st Lt. but resigned after the battle of Bakers Creek, Miss. He reduced himself in rank to 4th Sgt. He was killed on December 17th, 1864 in rear guard action during Hood's retreat from Nashville. He was probably killed at or around Spring Hill TN. He was under Lt. Gen. Steven D. Lee's command. I am not sure but I think he is buried at the Mt. Olivet cemetery in Nashville. I'm still gathering info on his exact burial spot. Nobody in the Cross family has been able to find him in over 140 years. My Mother was a Cross and he was her Great Grandad. Submitted by Scott Swann
