Letter About John W. Inzer, Member of Alabama Secession Convention.

John Purifoy writes from Montgomery, Ala.:

"In the February VETERAN, page 79, there is a reference to A. H. Carrigan, Sr., of Hope, Ark., as "doubtless the last survivor of the secession conventions of the sixties," and request is made for information if there are others living.

"Col. John Washington Inzer, residing at Ashville, Ala., was a member of Alabama's secession convention, and has just completed his eighty-eighth year, having been born near Lawrenceville, Ga., January 9, 1814 [sic]. Col. Inzer is the only surviving member of the Alabama secession convention. He enlisted as a private in the Confederate army and passed through the several official grades to lieutenant colonel and rendered efficient and gallant service in every capacity in which he served. He was captured at Missionary Ridge November 25, 1864 [sic], and carried to Johnson's Island, where he was held as a prisoner of war until June, 1865. He has held many civil positions of honor with great credit to himself and his county and State. His physical condition indicates many years' lease of life yet."
