Reported to have died at Andersonville?






How could this be?




Although the records at Andersonville were very well kept, there are 460 buried as unknown. Its possible he was one of these however we have more than 1000 on
record as " Reported to have died at Andersonville". How could this be?




One way is that I died as an unknown.


Another explanation is that when Sherman began his march across Georgia, the powers that be in the Confederate government wanted to remove as many
prisoners as possible from Andersonville for fear that Shermans cavalry would attempt a liberation of the camp. Although this never happened, it was
always expected.

The vast majority of those who could stand on their own were indeed transfered to other stockades such as Camp Lawton in Millen Georgia,
Florence South Carolins, Blackshire Georgia, and Thomasville Georgia as examples. Many times when comrades would be forced to leave their friends,
they knew those left here at Andersonville were so sick, they would certainly die.

After the war, those who survived the war would muster out of service and give testimony to the state ADG of the fate of those they knew who never
returned. The sick man left behind at Andersonville would be reported with sworn testimony they what they witnessed would have most surly have resulted
in death at Andersonville. This would show in official state records that the man died at Andersonville.

It was found that quite often in these cases, that those dying men left behind recovered somewhat from their illnesses and were later transferred to
the other stockades I mentioned, only to later die there as unknowns This along with Andersonville being the most well known to those in the north, it
was often assumed that they must have been at and died at Andersonville.

RE: Knight, Land, & Livingston Families
So wish I could help you, but I don't have any. I am not directly related. Some of my McGee's connect into these families.

If I ever run across any, I will certainly let you know.

Happy Holidays.
