James Madison Ulmer - Sergeant   
Ulmer is my great great,great-grandfather . The 'Official Records' I have seen unfortunately list him as 'John M. Ulmer' but there is no doubt that they are one in the same as his grave marker list this:
SGT. Co. A. 40th MS. INF. CSA.

As to the Sergeant designation above, I am going by what is on his grave stone and a record a confederatevets.com and the parole list from Vicksburg so I am just assuming that is correct.

He was captured at Vicksburg on 7-4-1863 then paroled. I don't see any other action after that so he may have been the only Confederate soldier to honor his parole pledge and stop fighting, but I doubt it. He is listed on the Vicksburg National Park parole records:http://www.nps.gov/vick/learn/historyculture/confederate-parole-records-u.htm

He is buried is a small family cemetery which I maintain in Clarke, County MS about 5 miles west of Shubuta, MS.

Hope this helps,

Joseph S. Johnston
