John James Waters - Private   
John was mustered in in 1861 at Camp Perrine. He fought in all the battles. He re enlisted in 1864 and went home for the one month veteran's furlough. He fought at the battle of Drury's Bluff at the approaches to Richmond. He was captured along with Heckman and Drake. He was sent to Libby Prison and then on to Andersonville in Georgia. He was then sent to Charleston SC where he died in captivity. Although some records have him dying at Andersonville, there is no grave there bearing his name. No grave exsist in Charleston either. I am in possession of several letters that he sent home to the family in New Jersey. He also sent his pay back home to his family. He is the younger brother of my great great grandmother Lydia Waters Leaman. (Of the 20 members of company G captured at Drury's Bluff only 4 survived captivity)
