Anton Kleesattel

While on campaign in Tennessee he contracted neuralgia. He was confined to his barracks in Covington for treatment, but was never cured. This condition bothered him enough that he was not able to work as a blacksmith any longer. He applied for a pension, but it was not granted.

James L. Bethurum was my great-grandfather. He was from the Mt. Vernon area of Rockcastle County, Ky. James was born abt1847 and died 19 Nov 1878. His headstone should be somewhere on the family property at the time. I have yet been unable to locate the site of his burial.

My assumptions: My great grandfather was evidently captured on the retreat from Knoxville on December 4, 1863. He was probably held as a Union POW in Kentucky. He took the 'oath of allegeance to the Union' and was allowed to join the Union army.
