(According to the Adjutant General reports), and received clothing in May 1864. Many men were missing on that date, since nothing was happening with the regiment in 1863, and he was a days ride from home, he left for home possibly, like many others to take care of their farms and families, but returned with the rest, when they were moving out. The regiment was camp at Dublins Depot, and the "Narrows", in Giles Co., VA. The microfilm rolls state, he was "wounded" at Cedar Creek, VA - on October 19,1864, and "left in the hands of the enemy." Possibly was left out side of town, after the battle, was rounded up, with the rest of the captured and wounded, and left at a field hospital around Woodstock.
