Mize, John - Private, Lexington Wildcats, Co. I

John Mize was born in 1843 to John and Elizabeth Mize. He worked as a farmer prior to volunteering for service on May 14, 1861 John was reported present until wounded in the hand and fingers 1 June 1864. He was treated in a Richmond, VA hospital and returned to duty on June 14, 1864. John was reported present until captured at Petersburg, VA, on April 3 1865. He was confined at Hart's Island, NY, until 17 June 1865, when he was released after taking the oath of Allegiance. After the war, John returned home to the Reedy Creek area, where in 1869, he married Caroline. John and Caroline moved to the Boone township in 1870, and would have three children, Henry Clay (1871) Hidora (1874) and John (1878). John died in the 1880s and was buried in an unmarked grave at Shiloh United Methodist Church." As a matter of interest, both Burgess and John enlisted on the same day in the same unit. Must have been hard on their widowed mother.

As it turned out, they are not in my direct line."
