Justus Corbra Heck - Private   
Not certain of muster-in date for Justus. Was eventually captured by Confederates; again no evidence of date. It has been documented that he ended up at Camp Sumter prison at Andersonville, GA, where he remained until transferred out on 11 Nov 1864 to Camp Lawton prison at Millen, GA. Nov 11 is significant as the date the last prisoners at Andersonville were shipped out in advance of General Sherman's march through the area. The record of J. C. Heck after that date has not yet been found, but he was alleged to have died in a southern prison.
