Jesse P. Hurst - 1st Lieutenant   
Captured at a skirmish at Sweet Water west of Florence, Alabama January 25, 1864 by a Col. Miller (92nd Indiana Infantry); sent to Camp Chase Ohio via Kentucky; transferred to Point Lookout, Maryland on February 17, 1865; paroled as part of a prisoner exchange in February 1865; walked to Greensboro, NC. He died after 2 weeks and was buried in the 'hospital' garden according to notes which accompanied his diary.
The information below accompanied the diary when it was sent to Clarissa 2 years after the end of the war.
Lieutenant Jesse P. Hurst was taken prisoner by the Federal forces near Florence, Alabama January 25th, 1864. Was a prisoner for 13 months, then released. Reached Greensboro North Carolina and died March 18th, 1865 after lingering two weeks and was buried in the Hospital garden of Greensboro. Prisoner at Camp Chase Ohio.

Jesse was from a divided family, and a member of his family who was a Union officer (it is likely Levi Hurst- his father) sent word to Jesse that if he (Jesse) would take the oath never to fight against the Union again, he would be released in an exchange of prisoners. Jesse refused, so he stayed in prison until February 1865. He was released as part of a large exchange of prisoners as the war was about to end. His family heard nothing for two years, and a letter finally arrived from a woman in Virginia (North Carolina) telling how she had seen this man passing her home, obviously ill and unable to continue. She took him in and cared for him, but he soon died there in Greensboro, NC, and was buried there.
