Jacob Drace tombstone back side. He was a Sergent in Company A 26th Kentucky Infantry for the Union enlisting October 14, 1861. He was under the command of Colonel Burbridge. He was described as a farmer who stood 5' 7" with a light complection, blue eyes, and auburn hair. His wife Mildred Herndon's brother John was also in this unit and it is possibly how he met his wife. On April 7, 1862 Jacob was shot in the thigh at the Battle of Shiloh and sent by boat to Saint Louis and then furloughed home from May 1862 to June 1862. From July 1862 to August 1862 he returned to service and was on bridge duty. On September 1862 he was taken prisioner of war and held at Camp Chase, Ohio. On January 17, 1864 Jacob re-enlisted with the same unit as a Veteran Volunteer at Camp Nelson, Kentucky. He is discharged in Salisbury, North Carolina after his unit receives a telegraph that the war had ended. In his pension application he states that he has disease of the spine. He said the cause is that before the war a log fell and hit his shoulder which did not disable him at the time but as he gets older it grows worse.
