First name is OK -: John Watts
State you are from? -: NC
e-Mail Address -: jwatts@nas.com
Who do you need info on in reference to Prison or civil war? -: Possible prisoner or relative
Your Question or Comment !! -: My GGrandfather, John Craig Watts, immigrated from Scotland to America in the 1840's along with one or two brothers. He first bought land in Cabarrus County in 1868 and married the widow Priscilla (Arey) Hartman in 1873.

Anecdotal information has it that John Craig visited Salisbury prison to meet his brother who may have been imprisoned there from the Civil War. It was also rumored that he may have offered to replace his brother in prison for a time while the brother conducted essential business at home or elsewhere.

I would like to discover whether such visit or visits may have been recorded, and if so the dates and circumstances under which they were allowed. Also, the name of the brother or other person/persons whom my G Grandfather visited.

Other anecdotal information suggests that John C and his brother(s) may have first immigrated to New York or other locations where they worked and/or had families before 1868.
How did you discover the info you have now?: My first cousin related these stories from her mother (now deceased) who had heard from her parents or kin.

The dates of 1868 land purchase and 1873 marriage are known to be correct, as is the name of the widow Hartman.

Your Question or Comment !! -: This man is an ancestor who kept a daily diary. I have transcribed this diary. He was sent to Salisbury on October 8, 1864. There are daily entries until Nov. 30, 1864.

I am working with a military historian from the NC State Archives about how to develop this material but wanted to see if there is more information I can get about his stay, particularly after the end of his journal entries. Any help would be appreciated.

Your Question or Comment !! -: Dear Sirs;
According to what I'm researching, the 55th Georgia Volunteer Infantry was placed on detached service after their release from being captured at Cumberland Gap, to both Andersonville and Salisbury as guards.
Jarvis Ethridge died 23 September, 1864. I'm not sure if he was at Salisbury or Andersonville, or if he was sick or wounded, dying later than the battle at Cumberland Gap. Do you have records on him and if so cause of death?
He is my ancestor and I want to get to know him better. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely, Bill Coil

Who do you need info on in reference to Prison or civil war? -: Big Tennessee
Your Question or Comment !! -: I read a book several years ago, whose title I've long since forgotten, about a North Carolina Confederate camp at which a black Northern soldier known only as "Big Tennessee" was imprisoned. I am not sure if the camp was Salisbury or not. If memory serves right, the camp was actually rather well run, and the POWs were not ill-treated--nothing like, say, Andersonville. The POW camp was near the Catawba river, and after the war ended, the former prisoners were taken away by steamboat on the Catawba, but the boat blew its stack, killing several aboard. Any help in finding the book or further information about Big Tennessee would be greatly appreciated.

Who do you need info on in reference to Prison or civil war? -: James Rufus Swink
Your Question or Comment !! -: I am looking for as much information on my great-great-great grandfather (listed above)as possible. I have learned that he was born in 1820, enlisted in the civil war at age 44 in Rowan County on July 7th 1862. He was a private in Co. K, 57th Regiment, NC troops. He was captured at Rappahannock Station, Virginia, Nov. 7th 1863 and imprisoned at Point Lookout, MD. Recieved at City Point, Virginia, March 20th 1864 for exchange. Took the Oath of Allegiance in Salisbury on June 1st 1865. I would like to know how I could find the documentation to prove these facts. Could I find copies at the Rowan County Library or would I have to write Washington DC? I am also doing research on all civil war prisons and am considering the possibility of writing a book. I already have a great deal of information and The Salisbury Prison Symposium is one of the reasons my curosity has peaked. I have decided to start researching them to get an idea of what my Great-Great-Great Grandfather had to go through while at Point Lookout. I am also doing the research to do a presentation for My SCV unit, Rowan Rifles Camp 405 in Salisbury. I am also a confederate re-enactor with the 63rd NC and we do a couple of events in Salisbury each year, one of which is the annual ghost walk or lantern tour at the Luthern Cemetery, and the Prison Symposium. I know Salisbury is full of confederate history and often wonder what the city was like before, during, and after the civil war. Now that I think about it... this would probably make a good book as well... maybe later. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
Confederately,
Randy Aldridge

Who do you need info on in reference to Prison or civil war? -: Edward Nichols
Your Question or Comment !! -: I have been interested for some time in the prison at Salisbury as it is the last home for Edward Nichols, 36th Reg Wis Inf, Co. C. He died there on 27 Nov 1864 and is buried in the graveyard. He was imprisoned with a number of other men from the 36th who were captured on 25 Aug 1864 at Reams Station and first sent to Belle Island and then transferred to Salisbury around 10 Oct 1864. Edward came from the small town of Sparta, Wisconsin and according to the 1860 and the 1850 Census was only 14 or 15 years old when he enlisted and 15 or 16 when he died. While there, they met up with soldiers from another locally drawn 19th Wis Reg, Co. C who were captured at Fair Oaks on 27 Oct 1864. Edward was a brother to my great grandfather. I am most interested in any new information that was not covered in Brown's excellent book. I have sent in my application to the Salisbury Confederate Prison Association as well.
How did you discover the info you have now?: I have investigated what I can at the Wisconsin Historical Society which includes Regimental documents and diaries of soldiers held at the camp. I have read the definative book by Louis A. Brown and also a couple of personal histories such as "Dark Days in Rebeldom". There was also a short history of the prison that I found in the Southern Historical Association publications by Rev. Mangum.

Your Question or Comment !! -: William Helm served with the Company I, 6th Infantry West Virginia Volunteers, he was captured at Bradys Mill Aug 2, 1864 and taken to Belle Isle Prison in Richmond, Va. He was later transferred to (uncertain if Andersonville or Salisbury). On the back of Wm picture a note is written that he died in Andersonville. But a researcher has said he was transferred to Salisbury, and arrived Oct. 9, 1864. Wm starved to death and died Jan. 12, 1865. It also states that he was buried in a pit. This same researcher lists his final military record read, "Died of starvation at the hands of the Rebels, January 12, 1865". Can anyone help me to see if William is listed anywhere?

Your Question or Comment !! -: In researching my Great-Great-Grandfather, Jacob Noe, I was able to trace his movements through his capture at the second Battle of Fair Oaks, VA in 1864. According to military documents I have acquired, the Deapartment of War sent my great-great-grandmother a record dated April 9, 1868 that states, "(Jacob)died while prisoner of war at Salisbury, NC on or about January 15, 1865."

Would you have any additional information in this regard? Why is his name not included on your records? Would this indicate he was buried in an unmarked grave?

Thank you in advance for any light you can shed on these matters. I plan to visit Salisbury in 2005 with other members of my family to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Jacob's death.

My other 2xgreat grandfather, Joseph Allen, served at a Union POW prison, Fort Warren, in Boston. Conditions there were probably bleak, it being on an island in Boston Harbor, but not nearly has horrible as at Salisbury. Rufus was the youngest son of Samuel and Lydia Mears and was 21 years old when he enlisted in the 39th Regiment, Company A., under Colonel P.S. Davis and Captain George S. Nelson. he was in the battles of Mine Run, Wilderness, Spottsylvania, North Anna, Tolopotomy, Bethesda Church and Petersburg. He was taken prisoner at the Wheldon Railroad, August 18, 1864, and died in the prison at Salisbury, 26, October, 1864. I am just beginning to research what the prison at Salisbury was like.

Your Question or Comment !! -: I am doing family research. My great-grandather had three brothers who all were in the Union Army. They all joined the 40th PA Inf, Company H, 11th Res. They were George B. Dunn, James Dunn, and Henry Dunn. George survived the war and lived until 1921. James died in Bristoe Station, Virginia, and Henry was taken prisoner at the Battle of the Wilderness (May 64). I recently rec'd some documents from the National Archives, namely pension records, where his widow and children were applying for benefits. They were affadavits from other soldiers in his unit, who testify that they were in the Andersonville Prison with Henry Dunn, and that he died of disease while there. My family has always said that Henry was taken to Libby Prison, and then Salisbury, where he died. My problem is that I cannot find him in the records of either prison. I can however, find several soldiers from his unit in Salisbury, including a McBride, who left the prison alive. One of the affidavits is from a McBride. Any suggestions in helping me get the facts? Thanks, Dan

Your Question or Comment !! -: Col. A.C. Godwin was the Provost Marshall of Richmond, Va., at the outset of Northern Hostilities. He assisted with the setup of Libby Prison there and there is a Camp named Castle Godwin there, apparently named after him.
He was sent to NC to set up the prison camp at Salisbury by Pres. Jefferson. After setting up the camp, he helped form the 57th NC Regiment. I wonder if there is any information in the Prison Archives referencing him. He is an ancestor of mine. I have most of the information on him after he formed the 57th, am trying to find out about his prison service.
Also, he himself was captured and spent time in a POW Camp in New York.

Your Question or Comment !! -: To follow-up my earlier entry, I have found out that John Parks (sometimes spelt Parkes) was drafted on 28 Aug 1863 in Chambersburg, PA.

He fought with the unit at Cold Harbor and was taken prisoner on 27 Oct 1864, presumably when MGen Winfield Scott Hancock took II Corps away from Petersburg on a little adventure against the Southside Railroad and Boydton Plank Road and ended up getting thumped by MGen Henry Heth's division. Perhaps this is how he ended up at Salisbury.

First name is OK -: Catherine
State you are from? -: NH
e-Mail Address -: songbirdkatie1950@yahoo.com
Who do you need info on in reference to Prison or civil war? -: Have the info! However, the records show a misspelling of the name!
Your Question or Comment !! -: The family has always been told the story of my Great Uncle
in the Civil War and it is part of our genealogy.
My husband and I went to visit Salisbury National Cemetery about 2 years ago and also visited the Rowan Library.
I can't thank the county and city enough for preserving the history and memories of that period in time. I was moved by this sentiment.
My Great Uncle's name was Thomas B. Quimby, born at Goffstown, NH in 1844. Thomas, and his brothers, Moses E. and Henry joined Co. D of the Tenth Regiment NH Volunteers in 1862 and fought in the Civil War. Thomas B. Quimby was captured Oct. 27, 1864 at Fair Oaks, Va and died Jan. 29, 1865 at the Confederate Prison at Salisbury, NC of scorbutus. He was listed in the dead list as #2,566.
They have his name as Quinley, Thos., pvt., Co. D, 10th NH.
I left a note with the records at the library and a note with the records at the cemetery. I don't know what difference it would make but I had to confirm his true identity even though I never knew him. I visited the trenches at the cemetery and left a flag and a flower to a relative never known to me but always remembered!
How did you discover the info you have now?: My Grandmother told me the story. It was her uncle, Thomas.
Her father was George Quimby, who was Thomas' younger brother.
The genealogy was compiled in a book by Henry Cole Quinby, A.B., LL. B., Genealogical History of the Quinby(Quimby) Family In England and America in 1915. Henry was a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, and the Society of Mayflower Descendants.

Your Question or Comment !! -: My GG Grandfather, Wm k. Smith was a Union soldier in the 14th West Virginia infantry, Company F. I have several references to his having died on Feb 12, 1865, and two that indicate this was at Salisbury, NC. Another indicates that he was taken prisoner at the battle of Cedar Creek on Oct 19, 1864. thus, the logical conclusion is that he was indeed a prisoner at the Salisbury Prison.
I want to establish/verify that he was there, when he died (and cause, if possible), and where his body was buried.
What records are available? Are any on-line yet? If not, are any relatively easily available through another source? Where/who? Advice?

Who do you need info on in reference to Prison or civil war? -: William C.(William Cosmer)Mabry CSA,Mississippi, KIA
Your Question or Comment !! -: I am trying to locate information, mainly burial site, for my Great Grandfather. He was killed in the Battle of Vicksburg, we were told by a lady at the Vicksburg City Cemetary that he was not buried there he was most likely carried to Alabama and burried.
I do not know his Unit, place of inlistment or inlistment date.
The information I have came from my Great Aunt, his daughter. All she new was he was killed at Vicksburg and that is all the family was told. She has passed away now and I am the only Mabry left so I am grabbing at straws and hitting brick walls.
I have sent letters to The Mississippi Department of Archives and have had no response.
To the best of my knowledge, or I am assuming he was from Newton County Mississippi. That is where my Grandfather and Father are from.
If you have any info that my help me would you be kind enough to email me.

Thanks,
john Mabry
