Memoranda on arrest of William Connell, Virginia. 1862.

William Connell.-A boy of seventeen; hardy. Taken with the home guard at Rhinehart's Mill. Says he had left his father and was in Kellar's store when he joined the home guard. Says he was persuaded by Daniel Shell. Says his father was much distressed when he heard it. Is the son of T.R. Connell. As this youth was taken with arms in his hands I suggest he be held as a prisoner of war.
