Capt. Zeph Turner Ross, Co. B, 13th VA Infantry. I definitely researched this soldier before my visit there. 78 pages of fold3 records. 33 pages of Company Muster Rolls, Regimental Returns, Inspection Reports and Prisoner Rolls. Enrolled at age 28 on 4/17/61 at Culpeper Court House. Mustered-in as 1st Corporal on May 26,1861 at Harper's Ferry. Present on CMRs and RRs through August 1864. Elected to 1st Sgt. on 10/12/61. Promoted to 1st Lt. on 2/24/63. Doesn't say when he was promoted to Captain. Captured at Winchester, VA on September 19,1864 and spent the rest of the war as a POW at Fort Delaware. Took the Oath Of Allegiance and was released on June 17,1865. 43 pages of Vouchers, Requisitions and Receipts. His daughter submitted a Headstone Application in February 1863. Great pictures on his FindAGrave memorial.
