George I didn't find him with any ownership in the 1860 slave roll. I think he may have been at school at Columbia Boone County in 1860. Interestingly, I did come across a pension card filed by his widow that showed service with the 4th PEMM as well. His mother Jemima ended her days with son Jesse in Illinois, though the farm in Daviess County just north of Gallitin is the one his father owned at the beginning of the war. I wonder and will never know for sure, if his attitude was adjusted by his experience at Lexington where brother George was killed and Dad wounded. He was oldest son and likely felt he needed to conform to keep the family fortunes intact. He would not have been the first nor last to have the romanticism of war ripped from him by reality. Then service in EMM/PEMM kept the hounds away while brother and dad were raising cain in W. Virginia. I'm sure the locals in Daviess Co knew who and what he was as did the local Union Provost.
