Casimer and J.E. were captured during the Battle of Gettysburg, and died of starvation at Belle Island and Libby Prisons. Libby Prison was a Confederate jail used mainly to confine officer prisoners of war at Richmond, Virginia. It was a four-story warehouse building of eight rooms, no furniture, where the men slept on the floor and had little food and poor sanitary conditions.
The list of soldier names on the monument in Lowell's town square also lists one other Pattee name: M.W. Pattee, 73rd Indiana Volunteer Infantry, but we find no record of that name in the family records.
Go to J.E. Pattee, "Pioneer History Index," for further information.
