Pvt. Samuel McCamish, Co. I
McCamish, Samuel, Pvt., Co. I, born February 26, 1811, enlisted for 12 months January 1, 1862 at
Charleston, Tenn.  He was recorded “sick 4th Nov” on Regimental Return of November 1862.
Later records record him as captured, in hospital and paroled at Vicksburg July 4-15, 1863.  
He was shipped with paroled, sick and wounded prisoners from Vicksburg July 24, 1863 to
Mobile, Ala. via New Orleans, La.

His record ends at this time.  He never returned home, nor word of his death was received by
his family.  He most likely died in a Confederate hospital either in Mobile, Alabama or
on the trip to that point from Vicksburg.

Prewar he was a farmer living in the 9th District of Bradley Co. with his wife and children.  He
married Nancy Stuart in 1830 who died in childbirth in 1844. He married Mary Ann Hyden about
1845, with whom they had three children. Since he did not return home from the war, family
records list his death in 1865.

Son Joseph Calloway may have joined up with his father as an unofficial follower of the
regiment.
