Bo's Great Grandather~

On June 18, 1862 he joined the Arkansas, USA Company B 3rd. Regiment, Arkansas Infantry, his rank was private.
J.B. was captured on July 4, 1863 in Helena, Phillips, Arkansas. As a POW he was sent to Camp Douglas, Alton, Ill. on July 9, 1863, on April 4, 1864 he was sent to Ft. Delaware off the coast of Delaware City, on Pea Patch Island. He became very ill and not expected to live, his father wrote the commanding officer of the POW camp and asked if he could come get his son to let him die at home, he was granted permission. Thankfully J.B. lived!

Sometime after 1880 he and his wife Manervia left Arkansas and settled in Brent, OK. where they raised their chidren, farmed and raised horses.
