I am a active member of post 555 American Legion. I am in the process working with the Veteran Administration with making sure all veterans have a military marker and flag at their grave site. I am covering Sackett cemetery, Clemons cemetery, St. Joseph’s cemetery and St. Mary’s cemetery in the Marblehead/Lakeside area. I would if possible like a list of the union soldiers that were at Johnson’s Island during the civil war.
Thank You Very Much,
Marty Stys U.S.M.C. veteran
Hello. Five of my ancestors were prisoners on Johnson Island in 1862, and one of them, Samuel Ash, was the first prisoner to die in the camp. Records that I have found indicate that no one knows where he is buried. I plan to visit this summer, and I am hoping to find out more information. I look forward to learning more about this chapter in my ancestors’ histories.
My great grandfather Elias Ellis Dismukes was a prisoner at Johnson’s island for 14 months being released at the end of the war. Do you have any records of prisoners?
