John G. Whitman - Private   
John Whitman was a rascal. He srved with a Mormon Wagon train in 1856 and met his future wife, Charlotte Hadlond, a Mormon pioneer and they left the church, started a family and they moved to Vicksberg before the war broke out. Then he joined the 1st. Was captured at the begining of the siege on May 18 and released June 9, 1863. He must have signed the Loyalty Oath but he was mad about it. They returned to St. Louis after the war ended and soon left with a group of former Conferderates to VENEZUELA to start a new 'South.' in 1867 - And to hunt for Gold.(CONFEDERATE EXILES IN VENEZUELA.) They returned to St. Louis dejected and settled in to the new UNION. His wife Charlotte put in for his pension after John Died in 1896 but the paperwork says he was in the PA infantry in 1861. This makes no sense but the names are correct. There is a lot about John G. Whitman at Ancestry.com. He was my great great grandfather.
