Great site ! Do you know of any information on the following? 1) David Cox born 1835 Indiana and died about 1866. He was taken prisoner in Civil War (so goes family story) and died in Libby Prison. His brother, Mark, also was taken prisoner, however, Mark & others tunneled under the prison and escaped. Mark sadly had to leave his brother David behind, lying on a little straw, dying. They both served in Company C, 75th Reg Indiana. thanks, Karen Foster Montgomery.
