      When asked of what state was his command, he replied with Texas. John went on to say: "Enlisted at Austin July 1863. Served until May 1865...Was immediately detailed to serve in Subsistence Department and was put to work gathering cattle for Luckett's Regiment. My entire time was put in driving Beeves for the command. I did not serve in any company as a soldier."
