R. Malott was from Marion County Virginia. (now WV) During the Civil War (1861-1865) he was arrested for aiding the Confederacy and taken as a political prisoner to Camp Chase, Ohio. While there he died on October 29,1862. He was buried at the City Cemetery on Livingston Av. After the War he was disinterred to the Camp Chase Cemetery. He may or may NOT have a tombstone. He was listed as a Citizen of Virginia and NOT a soldier. Some of this information was taken from the micro-film from the Chaplins report to Governor Jacob D. Cox of Ohio in 1866.
