List of the Dead at Camp Ford

EDITOR NATIONAL TRIBUNE: I send for publication the following list of soldiers, sailors and citizens, prisoners of war, who died at Camp Ford, Tyler, Tex., from May 22, 1864, until Feb. 17, 1865. The list was kept by T. J. Robinson, co. G, 36th Iowa, Acting Hospital Steward, and was preserved by Capt. J. A. Bering, of Lynchburg, O., to whom I am indebted for a copy. This is not a complete list of all who died at that place of torment, but only those who died between the dates given—more than 900 died there. By publishing this you will rescue from oblivion the names of 219 brave men of whom the War Department has no record. I would be glad to receive additional names to this list, or the names of any who died at Hempstead, Camp Groce, or Mansfield, Tex. [sic]; or Blackshear or Millen, Ga., or the number who died at either place, if names can not be given.—O. R. McNary, Historian National Association, Union Ex-Prisoners of War, Leavenworth, Kan.

*This is evidently a mistake in the regiment, as there was no 52d Maryland. Mark Flores has suggested he is actually Daniel E. Brantley, Co. G, 52 Indiana.
** Mark Flores suggests Peter Harget is with the 89th Indiana regiment.
*** Mark Flores suggests that James "Baldwin" is actually James Balderson.
