William Henry Harrison Stickley - Private   
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 !!!

William Harrison Robinson, Jr - Unknown   
The son of William Harrison Robinson and Mary Hanley, William Harrison Robinson, Jr. was a Civil War veteran who enlisted in Company I, 20th Regiment, Indiana Infantry, on 22 July 1861. He was badly wounded at Gettysburg on July 2, 1863. A local legend in Jasper County says that his father retrieved him from the Army hospital where he was being treated and took him to a private physician. In spite of his wounds he served until 12 July 1865 and mustered out as a sergeant.
According to family history, William was shot in the face at Gettysburg and retrieved from the battlefield by his two brothers, Michael and Thomas. They contacted their father, who came from Indiana to the Army hospital where William was being treated and used his influence as a Mason to move William into the care of civilian doctors.
