Some records support the fact that "Joseph" was in the Confederate Army. This may not be Joseph Ozincoutt Miller, however. The records state that "a" Joseph was wounded in the right leg and admitted to hospital at Port Hudson 6/22/1863. When paroled after siege, he died at Port Hudson on 7/18/1863.

The following from: Post Hospital Ledger, Port Hudson 1862 - 1863, by Lawrence Hewitt, Arthur Bergeron, Jr.
"Joseph Miller, Pvt., Co. F, Miles Legion, 6/27/63, gunshot wound in the leg, amputation of right leg above knee."
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
According to Minos D Miller in his statements on the Miller family dated in 1937 obtained by Edison R Mhire, stated "the last news of him was that he had been wounded and a leg had been amputated." This supports the Joseph Miller listed as wounded at Port Hudson. Minos D. Miller spelled the middle name "Ozincourt".

He married Marie Fruge or Delphine Marie Fruge, that is according to article on daugher Alida Miller Broussard's 100th birthday. Marie died in 1853 when her daughter Marie Alida was 8 days old. Article printed in 1949, probably in the Lake Charles American Press, Lake Charles, LA
