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.

JESSE JAMES COLLECTABLE . . . Is it a pistol? Is it a walking stick? Or, is it something else? Our friend Wendell Osborne visited the famous 127 Yard Sale – The World’s Longest Yard Sale (look it up). For a song, Wendell walked away with this one-of-a-kind Jesse James collectable. At first, the item looks to be a cane with a pistol grip handle. You have to look closely, though, to see if it’s not a pistol with a very long barrel. But the item’s owner will have to show you what it really is. Pull the pistol grip away from the cane shaft, and the item reveals itself for what it is. The weapon is a dirk! See MoreSee Less
