Andreas/Andrew Thompson - Private   
Andreas Torkjellsson Langeland/Thompson
AKA: Andrew
born: 24 Sep 1847 Langeland Farm, Føgn Island, Finnøy Co., Rogaland Dist., Norway
Immigrated: 6 Apr 1854
died: Feb. or Mar. 1865 in a swamp in North Carolina.

He was just shy of his 17th birthday when he enlisted.

John G. Johnson, and others, gave testimony to various County Clerks of Court in March of 1871. Andrew's mother, Anne was evidently making an appeal for a pension based on Andrew's death during the war. John stated that he was the last one to see him.
The following is from the Commissioner of Pensions, by the Adjutant General. 'It appears from the Rolls of file in this office, that Andrew Thompson was mustered into service as a Priv. on the 6th day of February 1864 at Dubuque, in Co. D, 3rd Regiment of Iowa - Volunteers, to serve 3 years or during the war. On the Muster Roll of Co. C of 2nd Battalion Regiment, which was transferred for the months of July and Aug 1864, he is reported missing in action since July 22, 1864 - Muster Out Rolls of Co. I, 2nd Iowa Vols. (to which transferred) dated July 12, 1865, reports him 'Missing in Action' - Captured by the enemy July 22, 1864 near Atlanta, Ga. and not heard from since.
Civil War Records furnish no Records of Death and Interment on file, showing date or cause of death.' (note: the form was hand written and is, at times, difficult to decipher.)
The following is from John G. Johnson's written testimony. 'State of Minnesota, County of Mower. John G. Johnson, of the town of Newry, Freeborn County, in said state, being duly sworn says that he is a resident of said town and by occupation, a farmer, that his age is twenty-seven years. That he enlisted, at Saint Louis, in the State of Missouri, in Company 'F' in the third Iowa Infantry, on the 20th day of December, A.D., 1861 and was afterwards transferred to the second Iowa Infantry; That he was well acquainted with Andrew Thompson, who was a private in 'D' Third 'Reg.' Iowa infantry, was a comrade and other acquaintance of said Andrew Thompson, That said Thompson's name, he believes, was Andres.
That on the 22nd day of July, 1864, at Atlanta, Georgia, depontent and said Andrew Thompson, with very many others were taken prisoners by General Hood's Army and were taken thence to 'Andersonville Prison' Georgia where we remained at that place about five months. Thence taken to Goldsburrough, North Carolina, excepting seven of us who jumped off the cars about fifteen miles from Goldsburrough, and ran into the woods. That he, Andrew Thompson, S. Kendall and four others whose names he does not now remember, jumped off the cars as aforesaid on the 22nd day of February, 1865, That Andrew Thompson and deponent kept together five or six days in the woods when said Andrew Thompson became unable to travel. Three of the seven had already died. That he, deponent, remained with said Andrew Thompson, alone after the others who had not died, went away. That deponent himself was nearly exhausted, but remained with Thompson till he was nearly dead, when he left him in a dying condition, alone in a swamp, since which time deponent, nor any of his family to deponent's knowledge has ever heard from him. That, at the time deponent left said Thompson, he was past recovery as deponent verily believes, and further deponent says died.'
In a 42 page 'Sketch of a Soldier and Prison Life of a Member of the Third Iowa Infantry during The Civil War, from 1861 to 1865, written by John G. Johnson, he described how they were treated as prisoners. When they were given food, it was something like ground corn, including the cob. These men were very weak from enduring those months of prison life.
Copies of the original testimonies were hand written, some correction in spelling were made in this document. It is not know if Goldsburrough or Gouldsburrough, North Carolina is correct.
The last document from the Commissioner of Pensions states: 'I hereby report that the name of Anne Thompson, Mother of Andrew, who was a pensioner on the rolls of this Agency, under Certificate No. 169433, and who was last paid at $8, to 4 Sept, 1885, has been dropped because of reported dead.'
