Re: Libby Prison

I have some old letters from a cousin who was told by my great grandmother that her "half-brother, Brainard Curl died @ Libby Prison from starvation". However I'm not certain this is correct as he would have been only about 15 yrs old. Brainard had an older half-brother named John Curl who was in his mid-30s during the Civil War yrs. This family was from Indiania. Records indicate that a John Curl was in the infantry and died May 25, 1864 at Andersonville from "diarrhea". He apparently had served with the Sixth Regiment Indiana Volunteers Company E. I keep wondering if "old memories faded" for my great grandmother and she simply remember "the wrong brother serving/dying" . . . ???
