Birth: 1829
Death: 1885, USA

Ref. John Conway and Fred Fries/Sullivan Co. Historical Society:
Serving with the 26th U.S.C.T, engaging the confederate army at John's Island, S.C., Theodore Cotton was wounded during the engagement when the confederates routed the union force there, and he was taken prisoner and remained POW during the remainder of the war. On March 4, 1864 he was freed in a prisoner exchange; his wound being so serious his leg had to be amputated, and he was discharged due to his amputee condition. He returned his home town of Highland, where he eventually resumed to his former occupation as a stonemason.
