Daniel Morgan Brickey died on 12th Mar 1865, while in a prisoner of war camp (Camp Douglas) in Chicago, Illinois. He died from small pox.

Sadly, It is believed immediate family members were not able to retrieve bodies of dead prisoners, at the time. Although, this is not for certain.

Camp Douglas, in Chicago, Illinois, was a training camp and one of the largest Union Army prisoner-of-war camps for Confederate soldiers taken prisoner during the American Civil War. The camp became a permanent prisoner-of-war camp from January 1863 to the end of the war in May 1865. In the summer and fall of 1865, the camp served as a mustering out point for Union Army volunteer regiments. The camp was dismantled and the movable property was sold off late in the year. In the aftermath of the war, Camp Douglas eventually came to be noted for its poor conditions and death rate of between seventeen and twenty-three percent. Some 4,275 Confederate prisoners were known to be reinterred from the camp cemetery to a mass grave at Oak Woods Cemetery after the war.
