Confederate Memoranda on F. B. Coburn, taken Virginia Circa 1861-1862.

F. B. Coburn.-Born in Preston County, Va.; learned his trade in Uniontown, Pa. Was in Kansas during the revolution; says he took no part in it. Returned to Virginia; stole a horse; was in the penitentiary two years and a half; was discharged in March. Arrested passing our lines on suspicion of being a spy. He says he has lost his citizenship in the State of Virginia by being sent to the penitentiary, but wants to claim citizenship in the United States. I recommend he be held as a prisoner of war.
