My GG Grandfather's Generation



My gg-grandpa lived in Elizabethtown, KY and is buried at Sycamore Methodist Cemetery.  Per Civil War records, he was drafted on September 24, 1864 in the Union Army, Company F of the 21st Regiment of Kentucky Volunteers commanded by Captain Jasper F Morton and was honorably discharged at Camp Harper (Nashville, TN) on June 21, 1865.  On march between Strawberry Plain and Bulk's Gap, TN during the winter of 1864/1865, he contracted "disease of lungs" from exposure and spent six weeks in a Huntsville, AL hospital.  This illness contributed to his death many years later.  He was 5' 6" tall, light complexion, dark hair, and gray eyes.
