Cyrenius Waite James (1831-1911) has been honored by the American Ex-Prisoners of War, Fort Worth Chapter. A nice memorial page has been mounted  by the Thurmond Fairview Cemetery Association regarding the event.

Cyrenius was wounded, captured, and confined at Resaca, Georgia, until 1865. He was serving in Company B of the 79th Regiment of Illinois (Union) Infantry. While a POW, one night he dreamed of his daughter, choking on a piece of corn. His daughter had died that same night. Up to the day he died, Cyrenius made continual claims for pension increases, claiming his hemorrhoids were a condition of his service in the war.
