I have been putting together my family tree.My mother recently gave me a copy of a declaration for pension (civil war) for James Abbott.The pension was applied for on June 3, 1918.It was witnessedby Noah Puckard andJohn W. Bloss.It lists James Abbott's post office address as Corydon Indiana in the county of Harrison.James Abbott was in the Kentucky Calvary M&H, 12th regiment on October 28, 1862 as a private.He was discharged in Louisville, KY on 8/28/1865.I also have a copy of his prisoner of war record.Evidently he was confined from May 1863 until reported to company on 10/63.He was released in 2/64.I can barely read the notation, but I believe he was captured in Richmond, VA.He was 18 years old, 5'11"inches tall, dark complexion, Hazel eyes and was a farmer born in Jefferson County, Indiana when he enrolled in the Kentucky Cavalry. He was married to a Prinda (?)looks like Wereman October 5, 1868.
