I am looking for informatiuon regarding a James Beith who was 19 years of age in 1861. He served with the 9th NY Infantry, the 52 NY National Guard and the 48th NY Infantry during the Civil War. He was a POW in 1861 and 62. Of the remaining portions of the burned 1890 census, he is noted as living in Washington DC.
I am researching James Beith and 72 other men and boys captured in October 1861 in NC. Any information, particularly contact with any descendants, would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
