Hi - I have been searching for info on James M. Moore b. 1820 probably Hardy Co WV/Hampshire Co WV lived Nicholas Co WV -maybe Braxton Co) possibly labelled a "Southern Sympathizer" Civil War and sent to Rock Island Prison. Because he was not enlisted and lived to come home from Prison, I have not been able to find much about him. ANY info much appreciated. I have found him on Nicholas County census, but need more definite info.
Possibly newspaper articles re Civil War and how it affected that area ----- other articles on residents being sent to prison for being sympathatic ---- to either side.
