Your Question or Comment !! -: Both of these men lived in Taylorsville, NC which is about 20 miles from the prison.

Searching has not produced service records for them but pension applications exist. According to the regimental history of the Jr. Reserves they served as guards at the prison. Any information you have referencing them would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Who do you need info on in reference to Prison or civil war? -: Capt. A. C. Godwin
Your Question or Comment !! -: It is my understanding that Capt. A.C. Godwin was the person sent to Salisbury to form the prison camps there. There are several newspaper stories written in the Richmond Enquirer, 2/20/62 and 3/7/62, which mention this fact. There was a camp named after him, "Castle Godwin", which housed those other than military prisoners. Godwin left the camps in 1862 and formed the 57th North Carolina, which he led to distinction is numerous engagements until his death at Third Winchester, Sept. 19th, 1864.
An ironic note is that Capt. (at the time Colonel) Godwin was captured at Rappahannock Station and served time in a Federal POW Camp.
His cousin, my G-G-Grandfather, W.R. Godwin, was captured at Nashville in Dec. 1864, and served time in Camp Casey, Oh, before being paroled at the end of the war.

My Great-grandfather was Eli Stephen West and he was born on December 3rd of 1860. He was an only child. This seems a bit suspicious to me since most families in that era had several children.

Who do you need info on in reference to Prison or civil war? -: David S. Dewald, Co. F, 84th Pennsylvania Volunteers
Your Question or Comment !! -: David S. Dewald is one of 11 Union (5 of whom died) and 2 Confederate soldiers I have found so far in our family.

He enlisted from Moreland Township, Lycoming County, PA on 10/9/1861 for three years. He was a sergeant. He fought in many of the major battles - Kernstown, Port Republic, Second Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville (where he escaped capture) Wilderness & Spotsylvania (where he was wounded) and the Battle of Deep Bottom where his luck finally ran out. He was captured on August 16, 1864 and was in various prisons around Richmond until being transferred to Salisbury on October 9, 1864. He died there on February 15, 1865.

I read through the list of burials on the cemetary web site. His name does not appear. I was told by a friend who has done research on the 84th Pennsylvania that there is a mix up with either his name or regiment on the records at the cemetary. I read through all of the "D's", "S's" (for his middle initial) and the "W's" (since his name could be spelled DeWald) and could not find him.

Do I assume that he is in one of the thousands of unknown graves? If not, is there some other way I can find out if he has a stone at the cemetary as we would like to visit him.

Thanks

Beth

Your Question or Comment !! -: Matthias Mitchell was born in PA in 1815. He apparently died before his youngest daughter was born, September 1862. Family stories are confusing: 1. Mathias was killed in the Battle of Bull Run, but National Archives has no Veterans Record that match. 2. Mathias died in a Confederate Prison Camp. Mathias was a horse trader that routinely traveled from PA into VA; therefore, he could have been retained as a spy or political prisoner. Are the names of the POWs from the Battle of Bull Run available?

Your Question or Comment !! -: Were Union Soldiers put in this prison?

My gg grandfather was captured and put in prison. Down
through the family it was said he was sent to Andersonville.
He did make it out of prison, only to die in 1865 in Cincinnati, Ohio...while on his way home.

I know he was born in Beaver, Pa, he was married to
Mary Sebring and they had three children. I don't know
waht Regiment or Co. he was in through.

Would this prison have a George Baker that was release in
1865?

Thanks,

I notice, that at your National Cemetery, only a "handfull" of Civil War Vets are buried there, in addition to the "unknown" prisoners who died at the prison camp, (as my relative did).The remainder are local residents who have died since the Civil War, and who have been in the military, or their wives.

Who do you need info on in reference to Prison or civil war? -: Joseph Bohn or Bone
Your Question or Comment !! -: My GreatGrandfather was in Co H, 7th Illinois Cavalry and was captured near Germantown, Tn 30 Jan, 1864. Acording to my elderly aunts, he was put in Andersonville prison until 1865. However, he is not on the rolls at Andersonville and the description of the prison that has been handed down definetly fits Salisbury. He was paroled 28 Feb 1865 in Wilmington, NC which is alot closer to Salisbury than Andersonville. Is there a prison roll still in existence? Also, is there a list of the officers at the prison during my ancestors internment. Again, according to my aunts, GGDad was going to be shot for escaping to retrieve water from the nearby spring for wounded prisoners. However, he was spared by a French or patois speaking officer when GGDad asked in French to be spared. (He was an immigrant from the French speaking area of Germany). I don't know if any of this is true, but my GDad swore to the story that was told to him. I do know for fact the date of service, unit, capture, location and parole. As for the name difference, he couldn't read or write and his last name sounded like the second spelling. In fact, BONE is the name given on Federal records. Anyway, hope I didn't bore you with this story, but I've always wanted to research GGDad. Thanks for your help.
