Known as “Zeph”, Zephaniah Anson Fowler married Elizabeth Ann “Betsy” Glover (c.1822-1897) in June 1840, and they had at least 5 and as many as 9 children. Here they are in a pre-war photograph originally shared on a Glover family website [now gone].

He was First Lieutenant of Company E, 6th Georgia Infantry at Sharpsburg in September 1862, and was listed as missing in action there. He was back with his Company and promoted to Captain by March 1863, but was elected to the Georgia state legislature in 1863, 1864 and 1865, and may have been granted leave from his Company to attend legislative sessions. He resigned his commission sometime after April 1864.
