Though I am not of this family line I felt that those of you that are would like to know what I found, some may have already found it. Much of my family history centers in and around Alton, Illinois and that brings us to Ambrose Agee of Missouri.
Ambrose Agee was a Privet in E.Company 10th Missouri, CSA. I don't know when or where he was captured but he was a prisoner of war in the Alton,Illinois prison, where he died of smallpox 17 aug.1863.
To learn more of this event go to the US Genweb Archives:Madison,County Illinois then click on cemeteries then click Alton txt.Smallpox Island. This is a great site it contains history and photos. We all owe Phil Kempland a great big Thank You for this contribution. C.W.Agee
