I have an uncle, George P. Coleman, who died at Andersonville Prison. He was
in the 101st Ohio, Co. A.
There are many books written on Andersonville, some of which list those who
died. I have not tried writing directly to the site, but I have understood
that they are quite helpful.
My helpful hint, however, is to recommend that you contact the National
Archives and Records Administration in Washington DC and get a copy of the
"National Archives Microfilm Publications Pamphlet Describing M1303". This
little booklet gives a description of the National Archives holdings of
"selected records of the War Department Commissary General of prisoners
relating to federal prisoners of war confined at Andersonville, Georgia,
1864-65." This is a portion of Record Group 249. There are six rolls of
microfilm in this series - mostly hospital records and death records.
I looked at two of the rolls the last time I was in Washington DC and found
a couple notations about my George P. Coleman.
I would bet you could borrow the films through AGLL, Scholarly Resources,
the LDS Family History Centers, etc. Anyway, this little booklet is a
start. I cannot remember now if there was a small charge for it, or if it
was one of the freebies.
