John was born abt 1829 in Rowan Co. NC. He is about 35 when he enlists 4 July 1862 at Salisbury, Rowen Co. NC. In Capt John Beards Co 57th NC Vols. for three years or the war. This became Co C. He has 23 cards in his archival file. On 5 April 1863 he is sent to the hospital sick. and on 3 Dec 1863 he is sent again to the hospital as sick. 20 July 1864 he is captured near Winchester Va and taken POW. He is sent to Camp Chase near Columbus, Ohio where they say he died of smallpox on 8 Nov 1864. I suspect a combination of cold weather, poor housing & starvation diet led to the death of many in this and other northern prisons.. See the details of a Col Hoffman who was in charge of northern prisons.. His own men at trial after the war said he starved many a man to death. He even bragged that he had killed more rebels than many a front line unit..
Assigned to Generals, Law's, Hoke's, Godwin & W. G. Lewis's Brigades. John is buried in grave # 431 at Camp Chase. I have not been able to get a picture of his stone.

Joseph Graham Morrison - Captain   
Capt. Joseph Graham Morrison born 1 Jun 1842 in Mecklenburg County, Charlotte, NC and died 11 Apr 1906 in Charlotte, NC.
He was the son of Rev. Dr. Robert Hall Morrison, a Presbyterian Minister and the first President of Davidson College, Davidson, NC and Mary Graham.
Joseph was also the brother of Mary Anna Morrison, the wife of Gen. Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson, Isabella S. Morrison the wife of Gen. Daniel Harvey Hill, and Eugenia Erixene Morrison the wife of Gen. Rufus Clay Barringer.

Josesph was a student at VMI (Class of 1865) when the war began. He left VMI and was commissioned a Lt. and became an ADC (aide-de-camp) on his brother-in-law Gen. Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson's staff in June 1862. In the Antietam Campaign he was ADC to Gen. Jackson and was with Gen. Jackson when he was mortally wounded at Chancellorsville in May 1863. After Chancellorsville in July 1863 rather than transferring to Gen. Ewell's command with the rest of Gen. Jackson's staff, he joined the staff of Gen. Ramseur. The Morrisons knew the Ramseurs since both had lived in Lincolnton, Lincoln County, North Carolina where the Rev. Dr. Robert Morrison had been the Pastor of Macpelah Presbyterian Church.

In Sep. 1863, Joseph Morrison was transferred to the 57th NC Regiment as Adjutant. By 1865 he was a Captain of Co F, 57th NC Regiment and lost a foot shortly after at Petersburg while away from his regiment visiting Gen. Hoke.

After the war he was suffering from tuberculosis and spent the four years following the war in California recuperating. In 1869, he came home to North Carolina where he was a planter and ran the Mariposa Cotton Mills. He returned to claim the family home upon his father's death in 1889 and himself died at Charlotte, NC on 11 Apr 1906. Capt. Morrison is buried at the Macpelah Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Lincolnton, Lincoln County, NC. He was the husband of Jennie E. Davis.
