Memoranda on arrest of Addison Neff, Fayette, Virgina. 1862

Addison Neff.-Born in Greenbrier; age twenty-one; lives in Fayette; no cause for arrest assigned; says his brother was stabbed and expected to die. As soon as the enemy left Dogwood Camp he started to Greenbrier to see his brother. Applied for a pass at Meadow Bluff; was arrested. He voted against secession but will abide by the action of the State. Mr. Snider proves Neff's brother was of a family faithful to the Southern cause and he believes Neff himself was faithful. Proves his brother was stabbed, and for a long time it was believed he would die, and that while the armies were not in the country the family passed to visit each other frequently. I recommend that he be discharged on taking the oath of allegiance.
