Re: Info on the Parkers in Autauga Alabama

He talks of his time at Andersonville (the WORST of POW camps -so bad the warden was charged with war crimes)

he was given an age of 31 or 32 when enlisted

his height was listed 5 feet 9 inches hair brown, eyes and hair were like those of my race

his troop combined with company 26

5 boys listed as brothers and 3 girls listed as sisters

Neal was the only one left alive during the deposition

no it rambles, but he was called Parker Peace 10 years before he became free

it says he was worried about his wife. Then he said he got married during slavery at the parker place

Married by preacher phil saudens

page 10 has him with yellow complexion????

his daughter asked for his penision to bury him- i will need to print to get the name

he died July 3, 1912, his wife got $43.83 for her last pension check for him

page 20 says he had no children

page 21 says last penison check was $25.00 paid to his wife

page 23 lists 3 more names for him if I am reading it right

page 25, soldier died july 4th 1912

page 36 his listed occupation prior to the war was servant

page 39- born 10th August 1834---he had frost bite on right foot, heart trouble, and afflection of right eye

looks like he also lost an ear and had rhuestisin (arthritis)

page 46- claimant does not write....

honorable discharge as a Private! he got frost bite protecting a horse for someone (cant read on computer) and that is why he was discharged early- he was supposed to serve 3 years

he was never treated in a hospital but did see the field surgeon which is why his foot and leg got so bad

If I read some more pages correctly- he was blackmailed and that is why he got an attorney (i will verifiy when I can print)

he was ordered to rob and steal and recieved wounds to his eye as a result

no treatment was given to him for his eye injury

page 67 describes what happened more but hard to read

your grandmother never remarried

all i can say now is WOW----it does not say how he became a free man, but it has a boat load of information. From what i can see they treated him like crap (but that is my opionion).
