Job Downen's descendants / Andersonville records

Does anyone know how to contact the direct descendants of Job Downen? His name has been omitted from the prisoner list at Andersonville. I have his military and pension records, but it might not be enough to convince the Parks Department that he was, in fact, a prisoner there.
My grandmother, Mary Downen Layman, told chilling stories of her brother's return from the war -- he was so gaunt and so wasted that his own family didn't recognize him.
I was stunned when I found out that he wasn't on the list. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
