Jesse Stancel Jones - Lt. Colonel   
Lt. Col. Jesse S Jones (1832 - Dec 7 1864) of
The Jones Plantation
Colleton County South Carolina.
By
Randy R. Jones

JESSE'S PARENTS:
John S Jones & Elizabeth Broxton of
The Jones Plantation & The Broxton Plantation
Lodge, Colleton County, South Carolina
Descendants of Thomas Jones of WALES (1727-1761.)

JESSE STANCEL JONES enlisted into the Civil War, as Capt J.S Jones, with:
The (CSA) 24th Infantry Regiment of South Carolina Volunteers, Co. E.
24th Infantry Regiment was organized during the winter of 1861-1862 with men from Charleston and the counties of Marion and Edgefield.

NICKNAMED: “The Colleton Guard.”
He was assigned to “The Gist Brigade” under General States Rights Gist.
His commanding officer was Colonel Ellison Capers., (Capers, later promoted to General.)

NOTE: Both General Gist and General Capers are buried at
The Trinity Episcopal Church across from the State House in Columbia, SC.

Lt Col Jesse S Jones preformed his patriotic duties with great conviction and southern pride and was wounded once at Chickamauga.
J.S Jones fought for the Confederacy from the time the 24th was formed until his death, on
December 7th 1864, at the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee.

The 24th and 16th Regiments of SC., often combined there units in several war campaigns.
The unit served in the Charleston area, fought at Secessionville, and in May, 1863, moved to Mississippi. Assigned to General Gist's Brigade, it was engaged at Jackson, and then joined the Army of Tennessee. The 24th participated in the campaigns of the army from Chickamauga to Atlanta, endured Hood's winter operations, and saw action in North Carolina. It lost 3 killed, 7 wounded, and 2 missing at Secessionville, had 105 killed or wounded at Jackson, and reported 43 killed, 114 wounded, and 12 missing at Chickamauga. The regiment totaled 430 men and 342 arms in December, 1863. During the Atlanta Campaign, May 6 to July 18, it reported 21 killed, 80 wounded, and 18 missing, and on July 27, there were 53 disabled. Of the 285 engaged at Franklin, fifty-three percent were killed, wounded, or missing. Few surrendered on April 26, 1865. The field officers were Colonels Ellison Capers and C.H. Stevens; Lieutenant Colonel J.S. Jones; and Majors M.T. Appleby, Andrew J. Hammond, D.F. Hill, and C.B. Sigwald.

THE BEAUREGARD BATTLE FLAGS:
http://www.lowryrifles.com/origin_battle_flag.htm
On April 20th 1863 at James Island, SC. General Beauregard reviewed the 24th and 16th and awarded them both Battle Flags. Known as ‘‘The Beauregard Flags’’ both are Charleston Depot Colors. Never allowing their flags to be captured, both units would carry their colors until the end of the war. These Flags hang today in the Relic Room in Columbia, SC., home of the South Carolina Soldiers of the Confederacy. Lt. Col. Jesse S Jones assumed command of the 24th Regiment on July 31, 1864.

CITED FOR BRAVERY:
From Palmetto, Georgia to Franklin, Tennessee the 24th and 16th combined forces to embark on a 500 mile march for The Tennessee Campaign. The men suffered much during November from bad weather and the want of clothing, shoes and blankets. Food was rationed and many times there was nothing to eat but meal. Despite all of these hardships no man deserted the flag of his regiment. And no command of the army fought with more spirit and heroic determination at Franklin than the 24th South Carolina Volunteers.
Lt. Col. Jesse S Jones under heavy engagement of the enemy, pressed back there advancing forces. Leading his Regiment up front and to the right he was shot and fell mortally wounded. Lt. Col. Jesse S Jones died of his wound at a division hospital a few days after the battle. His loss will be much felt by the regiment and is greatly deplored by his Colonel.
Signed,
Colonel Ellison Capers.

THE BATTLE AT FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE:
After a long, bloody, and hard fought battle, late into the night The 24th Regiment of South Carolina did in fact charge the enemy, capturing the colors of The Ohio 97th Regiment Infantry and forty prisoners.

BURIED:
Lt Col Jesse S Jones was shot in the lower jaw and mortally wounded; at which time; he was taken to a makeshift divisional hospital, “The Harrison House”.
Lingering for seven days, doctors were unable to stop the bleeding, as Jones finally died from his wounds, on December 7, 1864.
Jones was buried in The McGavock Confederate Cemetery on the Carnton Plantation, just outside of Franklin Tennessee.
To this day, on record his government believes him to be buried there. However, after his death his personal slave gathered up all of his possessions and traveled back across enemy lines to there home in Lodge South Carolina to convey the awful news of his death, shortly thereafter the war ended. Two of his brothers, one being my 3rd Great Grandfather Robert Edgar Jones Sr. and another of his brothers, (not clear which one) took the slave with them on a journey back to Franklin Tennessee to bring back their deceased brothers body. Without permission from anyone the two brothers exhumed their brother’s remains and traveled back to South Carolina.
Lt Col Jesse S Jones is buried with the rest of his family at The Cross Swamp Cemetery in Colleton County. South Carolina.
