My late husband's great-grandfather was arrested during the Civil War possibly near Salt Creek. Is there anything recorded about a possible "massacre"? Family history claims he and some others were arrested and put in an outbuilding. A rock was put against the door. Great-grandfather dug until he was able to remove the rock from the door. He asked the others if they wanted to go with him. They responded that nothing would happen to them. He escaped but when the Yankee soldiers discovered he was missing shot the others. Great-grandfather went by the name of Obediah Thomas after the war, but we believe he may have changed his name. Any help would be appreciated.
