I got the following Civil War records from National Archives, Washington DC for sons of Gilbert (Gilbert3, Jacob2, Frederick1) Feeback of Nicholas Co, KY. I'm proud of them. I hope you are, too.
Enlisted 25 Sep 1861, Carlisle KY. Mustered in 5 Apr 1862, Private, Falmouth KY, Co K, 18th Infantry Regt. (Union). Promoted Corporal, 15 Apr 1862. Reported missingand subsequently reported wounded, 30 Aug 1862, after Battle of Richmond KY. Returned to duty in Co H prior to Sep/Oct Muster Roll. Promoted Sergeant and transferred back to Co. K, 25 Oct 1862. Reported sick in hospital, Carthage TN May through Oct 1863 Muster Roll. Undated physician’s approval for Sick Furlough signed at Cumberland Hospital, Nashville TN-noting he was unfit for duty and that his father had come for him. Died Cumberland Hospital, Nashville TN 2 Nov 1863 of chronic diarrhea for duration over three months.
Files also show a “Memorandum from Prisoner of War Records”. Record is almost illegible, but dated 1862 and shows Harrison’s rank as “S”, 18th Kentucky, Co K. He may have been a POW for short duration, but it is not mentioned on muster out records.
