Captured on December 20, 1862 between Oxford and Holly Springs. Sent to Memphis, Tn.  Then was sent on "City of Athens" to St. Louis, Mo.  Held until August 6, 1863 when a prisoner exchange was arranged.   He took care of Cpl. M.M.Nelson who was shot in leg prior to capture.  They both carried mail between Oxford and Holly Springs.   Nelson was shot near the Tallahatchie River on 12/17.   Commanding officer for both was Captain Ford.  This taken from the memories of James A. Strange.
