I'm doing research for a family member. I have found 3 brothers that were in the 26th infantry, Edgar's Battalion.
William C. Baker, Company A
Joseph A. Baker, Company E
John H. Baker, Company A
Family folklore is that William was captured at the fall of Richmond & sent to Elmira, where he died of disease. He's not listed in the Elmira POW dead. The only Baker would be J. Baker, Company E. I'm assuming this would be Joseph. I do know that William didn't survive the war. My question is how do I find out what Union prisons they were sent to & where they died. Thank you in advance.
