 Pvt William Henry Harrison Stickley  
20th Indiana Infantry - Co. C   
An ancestor of mine is shown in some of the Ancestry.com records as having been taken prisoner 1 Oct. 1861 at the Battle at Chicamacomico North Carolina and indicates imprisonment there - I have so far been unable to find any records about this - until a "Muster Out" date of 22 May 1862 which sounds like one of the early prisoner exchanges. I have no idea what happened after that but he did survive the war. If anyone can shed any light on this, please email me. Thanks !!!
