    Notes 
    • Camillus enlisted 29 August 1861, serving in the 5th Virginia Volunteer infantry for three years and then re-enlisting on 15 February 1864 in the 1st Virginia Veteran Volunteer Infantry to company G, for over a year. Discharged July 21, 1865. Unable to find records for him, I am told this is not unusual since the 5th and the 1st regiments were so heavily involved in the fighting that most/many of the records were destroyed at the wars end for fear the U.S. Government would use the information against the soldiers. Final discharge was in 1865.

      Ironton Register 22 October 1903 records
      C. Hall Freeman, one of the well known residents of the South Point neighborhood was found dead in his barn, about 6 o'clock Sunday morning, having hanged himself to a beam. Mr Freeman had left the house about 9 o'clock Saturday night, and it is though he hanged himself shortly after that, as the body gave evidence of life having been extinct for some hours. Mr. Freeman was past 60 years of age and had been mentally affected for some time. He was sent to the asylum at Athens, but came home in June on a trial visit. It is supposed his rash act was due to a recurrence of his mental ailment.
