More information about Marion Francis Hampton:
Marion Francis Hampton stated to the pension board that he'd had a brother named George that died young.
The following mostly gleaned from his pension record found at the National Archives, Washington, D.C.: June 6, 1863 - Marion Hampton had a friend Bill Sliger, who was going to join the Rebel Army, and wanted Marion to go along with him. Bill said he was going to join just so he could get through the Rebel lines and then he was going to join the Yankees. They enlisted at Jonesboro, TN, into Co I, 63rd TN INFANTRY (Confederate). A few weeks later, Marion realized that they weren't going to leave the unit, that Bill had just tricked him so that he would sign up. Wesley tried to take him home, but they wouldn't let him go. He then starved himself to lose weight and "played sick" intending to get a sick furlough to escape. He was in hospitals in TN and VA at least 8 months and was then sent home on sick leave, with orders that he would have to rejoin the unit when they came through Jonesboro. He never returned to them. He was later almost denied pension because of his "disloyalty to the U.S." Although he claimed his alleged Confederate service "was not a volunteer service". He later states that his brother-in-law A.J. Sliger was also in the same Regiment.
April 10, 1864 - Marion Hampton enlisted at Strawberry Plains, TN and was mustered in at Loudon, TN, in G Co 4th Tenn Infantry, (U.S.), commanded by J.W. Chockley. Was described as having grey eyes, dark hair, dark skin, 5'7"tall and was a farmer. Isaac Hodge and Franklin Phillips were bunk mates. Other comrades were Isaac Hodge, brother William F. Hampton, Sgt. George W. Walters and 2nd Lt. John Boreing.
December 1864 - Contracted disease of the eyes, on the "Faint Rock raid", (near Knoxville,TN), of which he never recovered, his vision worsened with age. Discharged at Nashville on Aug 2, 1865.
In a later statement, he says that he and Harrison Salts were raise together as boys, lived 1/2 mile away, and that he had worked for Harrison until he moved.
