Desperately seeking any data on prisoner death lists for Union or Fed Prison Camps, in Missouri, especially in or near St Louis MO. John Jackson KETCHUM (b 1818 Tn, d 186?/70's?) lived with his family in the Phelps (Dent & Crawford) Co MO area. Family rumor says John Jackson KETCHUM ( son of Joseph KETCHUM, b 1787 Va, d 1848 Bledsoe Tn), was captured during the "War", or shortly afterwards, for being a "bush-whacker" / outlaw, & for being a "raider" in one of the Confederate groups/gangs. Other family members are related to &/or rode with the Daltons, the James, the Younger boys, and Quantrell's raiders. John Jackson KETCHUM marr wife#1. ?Catherine FIELDS (b 1815 Tn?) ?; wife #2. Mary Caroline ?? (b 12 Jan 1824 Tn, d 24 Dec 1891 Phelps Co (Rolla area) MO), buried Phelps Co Mo.
John Jackson & Mary Caroline's known children are: 1). Dunlap J.(Jacob?) m Sarah ?; 2). Jacob Dungar? ; 3). John Thomas ; 4). David Richard (1851 Mo-1928 Mo) m Mary E. ADAMS; 5). Josephus (b 184?

Louisa Eliz."Lydia" ADAMS, 1895 Phelps Co Mo.(our Ketchum-Adams line). Need any data on John Jackson KETCHUM 's death date, grave/burial site (Confed.
