I need to find more info. abt my Great Uncle, Garrett Furnish, from
Gallatin Co.,Ky. who was a political prisoner, imprisoned under the
orders of General Sherman.
Sherman was relieved of duty in Ky. and was
sent to Illinois for an attitude adjustment shortly after that. Sherman
had abt 30-40 political prisoners arrested in Gallatin Co., Ky. and that
got him into hot water with DC.
Garrett Furnish was the son of Capt. James Furnish, who enlisted at the
age of 17 in Augusta Co.,Va. and served on the frontier in Ky. in the
first campaigns of the 1770's and continued to serve in the 1812 war,
with Gen. Harrison and beyond. James was my 4th GGrandfather.
Garrett and my 3rd GGrandfather, Jacob, were brothers.
There were members of my family serving on both sides in the
Revolutionary War and again in the Civil War.
Would appreciate any leads.
Thanks, Don Furnish email@example.com

Camp Chase Memorial Service
The 104th annual Camp Chase Memorial Service was held June 7 at
Camp Chase Cemetery, where 2,200 Confederate soldiers are buried.
Mark Diemer, pastor of St. Timothy Lutheran Church, led the
invocation and benediction; Stanton Prior provided the welcome
address; Joe Briggs Jr. played "Taps;" the crowd gathered for the
event sang "Dixie" and the "National Anthem;" and the 17th Mississippi,
Company D, Army of Northern Virginia re-enactment group fired a
musket salute in honor of the soldiers buried in the cemetery.
Pvt. Lawrence Marple read a passage from Romans 8:18.
The Bible in which he was reading from belonged to a Confederate
soldier buried in Camp Chase Cemetery. Marple purchased the
Bible at an antique sale.

Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery 103rd memorial service
The Columbus Dispatch June 2, 1998 page 2C said:
Sunday service honors Confederate soldiers
Joe Briggs Jr., a descendant of the pioneer family whose name is on
a road, a high school and a community in western Franklin County,
will once again sound taps Sunday at the 103rd memorial service at
Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery.
Briggs, 68, first took up the bugle while a student at Columbia Military
Academy in Tennessee. He resumed his duties with the horn at the
cemetery's 100th anniversary service in 1995.
The cemetery, 2900 Sullivant Ave, is the final resting place for 2,060
sons of the South who died while prisoners of war. It is the last remaining
section of a Union Army camp set up for the Civil War.
This year's public ceremony, sponsored by the Hilltop Historical Society,
will begin at 3 p.m.
Hilltop resident Ed Beeman, this year's featured speaker, will discuss life
at the camp and its historical importance.
Beeman said his interest in the camp stems in part from the fact that his
home in Westgate is on former camp ground.
Out of deference to those buried at Camp Chase, Briggs said he will face
south as he sounds the mournful tribute that will end the ceremony.
