A collection of historical and genalogical records
I've been trying to find info about Daniel McArthur (McArther) for the past 10 years. I know he served in the 28th Mississippi Rifles during the Civil War and was wounded and captured at the fall of Vicksburg, 3 Jul 1863. He was interred at the POW camp in Chicago until Aug, 1865, where the life expectancy was less than 4 months. He spent time in the Ft Smith, AR, area after the war, where he married a Cherokee woman. He was from west AL, originally. Family legend has it that he was killed in a shootout with outlaws, possibly the Dalton gang. If anyone knows his wife's, or parents', name, I'd be much obliged for the info.
