His company muster roll for December 31, 1862 records him absent, having been captured October 30, 1862, and subsequently paroled.

This time period being so short, I would believe he would have been soon sent to a Northern prison from which he was shortly transported by steam boat to Vicksburg , the Exchange camp, paroled and released.

Records do not contain any more data as to his subsequent service.
