Stephen G. Robinson (Roberson) was enlisted September 22, 1862 by Capt. Hopkins at Waynesville. Private Roberson served in Company A, 24th Battalion, Georgia Cavalry until February 13, 1864 when the 24th and two other units were consolidated to establish the 7th Regiment, Georgia Cavalry. At this time Robinson was assigned to Company G of the 7th.

The 7th moved to the Army of Northern Virginia and encountered one of the largest and bloodiest cavalry fights in the history of this war. As many of the members of the 7th, Pvt. Robinson was captured on June 11, 1864. He was sent to Fortress Monroe on June 20th and was transferred to Elmira Prison, N.Y. July 25, 1864.

At Elmira the disgusting and inhumane conditions caused many men to die, including Pvt. Robinson. He died September 24, 1864 of typhoid pneumonia and was buried in grave # 456.
