He appears on a list of prisoners of war surrendered 20 May 1865, at Post of La Grange, Tenn., where he was captured. In the Remarks section, it is noted that he "Left his command Mobile Mar 1865."

The regiment of this soldier is undecided for now. No pension record has been found to settle this question. for transferral to 1 Miss Lt Arty card showing J. G. Langston filed with J. J. Langston
