John L. Collins
- Private
Paternal gr grandfather of my mother-in-law, Alma Collins Phillips. My wife's maternal gr,gr,grandfather. Son of James Henry & Luncinda Collins of Sullivan County,Tennessee. Described as 5`10' grey or ' hazel ' eyes, fair complexion, dark hair and a ' conscript ' from ' Sullivan County,East Tennessee.' Probably conscripted sometime during the spring-winter of 1862-63 just before or after the birth of his daughter,Nancy. He was probably captured in one of the final battles around the Atlanta,Ga area ( although one file card says ' captured in Sullivan County') He first takes the Oath of Allegiance at Atlanta Sept 27,1864 after he was probably given the choice of that over a Yankee prison camp. He was then sent to the military prison in Louisville,Ky where he again ' took the oath ' on Oct 22,1864 and was released ' north of the Ohio river ' where he agreed to remain till the end of the war. Most of the men that did this while they didn`t take up arms again,usually made a ' bee-line ' for their homes !!!
