James Deats
Birth: 1828
Upper Mount Bethel Township
Northampton County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 18, 1863
Annapolis
Anne Arundel County
Maryland, USA

James Deats was born on March 21, 1827 in Upper Mount Bethel, PA. His parents were Peter Deats and Christina (Plotts) Deats. James is the grandson of Revolutionary War Patriot, John Deats 1759-1836. He married Mary Casebier in 1850. They had one son, John H Deats 1850-1934, before divorcing in 1852.
On March 14, 1862, James enlisted in the 67th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment, Company E. During the Battle of Winchester Va (12-15 June 1863) the 67th (approx 900 men) clashed with two Corps of Lee's Army under Ewell and Longstreet (approx 50,000 men). Only 75 men from the 76th escaped capture. The captured men were taken to Libby Prison for a short time, then transferred to Belle Isle Prison in the James River near Richmond, VA. The prisoners were patrolled and exchanged during the late summer-fall of 1863. During his imprisonment, James contracted Typhoid Fever. He died at Camp Parole, Annapolis, MD., on Sept 18, 1863.
