Ancestor Info
Name: William Robert SpruillRank: Private Company: H

I have found the military records of Walter Robert Spruill ((photocopies). His last name did not contain an 'e' prior to capture at the surrender of Vicksburg. All records prior to that time were spelled Spruill. The July 4, 1863 POW record did not contain an 'e'. However, when he signed an oath on July 8, 1863, stating he would not take up arms against the U.S. unless duly exchanged, he signed adding the 'e'. He was exchanged July 23, 1863. He moved to Texas in 1894 and applied for a Confederate pension in 1925. It required official documentation of service. He obtained a copy of his oath from the U.S War department which included the 'e'. His pension check included the 'e' and he had to endorse it with the 'e'. Thereafter his name and those of his family was spelled Spruiell.
