===========================
Information about Sylvanus B. NELSON: CSA Co. G 31st Alabama, buried at
cemetery at Rock Island, Illinois and note that date died and burial plot
#can be found online.  I did not recognize any family members' names.
These two POW camps run by "Yankees" were not much different from
Andersonville.  The lack of food and medical care and overwhelming
exposure to diseases such as typhoid and diphtheria and pneumonia made it
difficult to survive.

========================                                      The Civil
War really devastated this family.  Ebenezer had seven children: four
sons and three daughters.
Ebenezer died in 1860 before the Civil War began. What a heartache for
him, had he lived, to know that all four of his sons and at least one of
his sons-in-law died during the war.  His first wife Sarah also died
before the war.  That left three daughters and two daughters-in-law that
we are aware of .  Ebenezer was a fine Christian and minister of the
Gospel. His name can be found on many marriage certificates in Alabama.
