Eli S. Glover
Pvt. Co. F 1st Regiment Alabama Artillery

Residence: Henry County, Alabama
He also had service in: 27th AL Volunteers.
Dead 4 months after capture and placed in prison at Elmira, NY.

Eli was captured at Fort Morgan, Alabama on August 23, 1864. He was taken to New Orleans, La. and was put aboard a ship bound for New York City on Sept. 27, 1864. When he arrived in New York City he was put aboard a train for Elmira, NY. He was received at Elmira on Oct. 8, 1864.

Eli died in Elmira on Feb. 16, 1865, and the report says he died from Chronic Bronchitis and his belongings were buried with him.
It is written upon the paper in the log book that Eli S. Glover died of Chronic Bronchitis, the truth is the prisoners of Elmira were starved, poisoned, deprived of proper medical treatment and murdered.

Eli was the son of Thomas W. Glover and Eleander Frederick, husband of Susan K. Glover (Glover was her maiden name).
Eli and Susan married in Randolph County Georgia 1849 and appear on the 1850 census report for Alabama. By 1860 Susan and Eli had 4 children, she died and he is shown with a new wife an his blended family, his children by Susan and his new wife's children. Ms. Corbitt was a widow. She and Eli had a son. Eli either joined or answered the call to the draft for the CSA and was captured at Ft. Morgan, Al. on the Mobile Bay. Sent first to New Orleans then transfered by ship North and transfered to Elmira "Hellmira" New York.
