Birth: Apr. 30, 1840
Johnson County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Oct. 4, 1864
Saltville
Smyth County
Virginia, USA

A member of the 39th Kentucky Volunteers died of wounds he received two days earlier during the Battle of Saltville, Virginia. He enlisted on September 6, 1862 and was mustered in on November 18, 1862. Two weeks prior to active duty he was captured by Confederate troops during a skirmish at Wireman's Shoals near Prestonsburg, Kentucky and was confined at Virginia State Penitentiary in Richmond, Virginia. After his exchange, he walked the 400 miles back to Kentucky to rejoin his regiment. Captain Auxier married Elizabeth Hinton two months before his death. His grave was unknown in an abandoned cemetery in Virginia for 126 years when a relative searched and had the grave including bones, teeth, clothing fragments, coat buttons and military insignias moved to Kentucky. He was the son of Nathaniel Auxier and Hester Ann Mayo.
