The title of your request refers to James, while the text refers to John. The records I found seem to indicate James as your target.

James A. Roberts, Baldwin County, enlisted 3-4-62 in the GA 45th Infantry, Co.G. He was transferred on 12-24-64 to the Veteran Reserve Corps. Possibly he was still debilitated from his wounding at Mechanicsville, VA on 6-26-1862.

Another Roberts in the GA 45th was Nicolas C. He enlisted the same date, but was discharged for minority (date not known). He was on the roster 9-27-62 in Richmond, VA receiving pay.

Also in Company G was Sterling. Mentioned as being from Baldwin County, he was made a POW at Fort Stedman, VA on 3-28-65, then was transferred to Point Lookout, MD approximately 3-28-65. He took the oath of allegiance on 6-17-65 and was released.

I'd be very surprised if this was the Sterling born in 1790. Not much chance of a person 72 years of age being allowed in the field. (heck, I'm 2 years past that, and you would have to have a fire lit under me to get mean enuf to want to shoot a yankee ((an obama dimmycrat would be another matter))
