Only recently learned this member of my grandmother's family tree from Bardstown, Nelson Co, KY was member of N Bedford Forrests Rangers; he was taken prisoner @ Battle of Ft Donnelson, TN & sent to Lake Erie's Fort Johnson POW Camp in Ohio. I've no details as to how long he remained captive, however I've discovered him post Civil War back in Bardstown-Louisville area as an attorney. Later, I traced him living in Southern Calif where he practiced law & was also local judge. Not sure of his death date, but appears to be pre 1900.
