NOTE: After serving in Capt. Young's company, some of these men served
in other regiments later in the Civil War.
J. H. Stephens was captured "near Gadsden" on July 18, 1864, and held at
Camp Douglas until June 17, 1865. Lewis Hembree was captured September
12, 1863, in Jackson County, AL, and held at Camp Morton, Indiana "until
transferred for exchange on Feb 26, 1865." James H. Stephens was later
in Mead's Battalion, captured, and died at Camp Chase, Ohio. Seaborn
Keel was also later in Mead's 25th Cavalry Battalion.
Some of the locals who hauled for the Sauta works included:
David Kennemore, Jeremiah L. French, William J. Brown, J. F. Martin,
Joel P. Ledbetter, John Vernon, S. D. Tanner, and S. F. Kennamer.
Dr. James M. Buchanan (of Larkinsville at the time) served as the Sauta
Cave mining works doctor. Between January and May 1863, Dr. Buchanan
made at least 19 visits to the cave and one visit to the adjacent potash
works, presumably the one on Gunter Mountain. His total bill for all
these visits came to $90.00. The doctor vaccinated 12 men and
provided a bottle of paregoric.
