Yankees were using the Know Co. Jail as a prison to hold their, Confederate prisoners.  Most of the men were from all over the south, but mostly Tennessee and Alabama.  Wilkerson Wolfenbarger (brother-in-law) was charged with horse stealing (he was in the cavalry).  In this same jail was William Weaver.  William was in the same unit as his brother, John Thomas Weaver.  John Thomas was a Cpl. in the AL Cavalry. There were no officers listed on the Jailor's Report for the week of July 27, 1863. On William's pension record there is a small entry about there being no record of a capture.  Now, was our Wm. in Jail or was it John using his brother's name so they wouldn't find out he was an officer?

INFO FROM PENSION FILE:
Filed in Chambers Co., TX (Mt. Belview P.O.) Sept. 1, 1916
States his occupation as that of a farmer and his physical condition as being "poor".
Command organized in AL (served as Fifer and Private in 13th Infantry, Co. K) War Dept demanded to know why he appeared to have been dropped from the rolls. His explanation: In the Spring of 1864 he received a furlough for 30 days.  On the night before his return to his command he was strickened with small pox and was etained at home for nearly 3 months.  When he recovered enough to return to duty, he went with Gen. Hood's command as a Scout with the understanding from the proper officers that his service or enlistment would be properly certified to his former command.  He remained with Hood's Brigade until the close of the war or their disbandment.  When they disbanded, he went to Atlanta, surrendered, and was paroled.
