No records can be found on a Brainard Curl after 1860, so perhaps he died @ Libby or even Andersonville at age 15 and the John Curl mentioned is not my great grandmother's half brother.A mystery.
The cousin in MO who wrote me years ago was very sharp and had an excellent memory and as I've reread his letters, he does mention Brainard Curl (& Libby Prison) twice.
Another possibility:Both John & Brainard died during the Civil War.
