1865 dated chest up image of Woods in a dark civilian suit. He is posed looking straight into the camera, his face and posture suggest that he is worn out and tired.

Contrast and clarity are very good. Paper and mount are also good with just some minor scattered surface dirt.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for THOS. J. MERRITT & CO… NASHVILLE, TENN. & ST. LOUIS, MO. Reverse has a cancelled 3 cent tax stamp dated “MAY ’65.” An ink inscription from the 1930’s is written on the reverse. It reads “JAS. A. WOODS. BROTHER TO JULIA H. WOODS. MARRIED ELIZABETH CAMPBELL. FATHER & MOTHER OF JAS. C. WOODS JR. & BESSIE WOODS (DIED WHEN SMALL.) TOLD ON 2/13/34 BY JAS WOODS FOSTER I & WRITTEN BY JULIA WOODS FOSTER.”

Image is from a Tennessee album.

James Allen Woods was born in Belfast, Tennessee on September 30, 1837. He graduated from Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee and later taught school in various places until joining the Confederate Army.

Woods was enlisted as a private in Company E, 41st Tennessee Infantry on November 15, 1861. He was captured at Fort Donelson on February 16, 1862 and paroled. Then, on September 29, 1862 Woods was elected 2nd lieutenant and at various times commanded the Company. Records show he was present throughout his service with his regiment seeing action at Holly Springs, Raymond, Chickamauga, Atlanta, Peach Tree Creek, Jonesboro, Franklin and Nashville.

After the war he married Miss Clemmie Orr in 1868 and then studied at the Union Seminary of Virginia. For forty years after he served as a Presbyterian pastor in Tennessee and Texas.

Woods died in Bolivar, Tennessee on June 24, 1910 and is buried there in Union Cemetery. [AD] ][ph:L]
