On page 217 you find the bio of John Mayer. There were two John Mayers from Holly Springs, Mississippi. The one mentioned here did not serve time as a POW in the North. The record card reads "Mayhan," and while that man was a POW, John Mayer was still on record as being with the Army of Tennessee, on detached duty as a supply clerk. The other John Mayer was 15 when he joined the 17th Miss Inf in 1861, but was discharged in June 1861, apparently due to his age. His middle initial was "H" and he was the son of Adrian Mayer and Martha Lumpkin. Little John H. Mayer then apparently joined the 9th Miss the same week he was discharged from the 7th, then was again discharged on July 18, 1861.The supply clerk named John Mayer is most likely buried in Butler Cemetery, Marshall County, Miss., and his grave has an old Confederate veteran headstone.
