mordecai b1819/Charity Emoline Dysart

Looking for people following this line. Mordecai is son of Robert who is son of Sgt John b Dysart. Living in Marshall Co Tn during the civil war.
Mordecai's son also named Robert b 1843 m Eliz McFall. Their son Franklin b 1881 m Bertha Riggs Their son Leonard B1917 . Franklin told stories in the 1960's about his father Robert and Grandfather Mordecai during the civil war. He said they were living in Marshall co Tn this is verified on census. He said most of the other Dysarts many living all around some to this day, hated our family because before the war started they freed their slaves gave them each a new pair of shoes, one dollar and took them to NewYork. Mordecai and Robert refused to be inducted into the confederate army and were put into prison we have always thought Andersonville but can't find any proof. He said they escaped two months before the war was over. They never returned to Marshall Co do to hostile feelings. They were in Davis co Iowa in the 1870 census. They are not mentioned in any of the following Dysart reuions. I Would love to verify these civil war stories told by my Grandfather Franklin as they were related to him by his father who was 19 when this all happed.
If you are related or know the answers to my questions please write. I also have over 300 pages of Dysart geneology. EMail
