Memoranda of arrest of Simon Schermerhorn of New York in Virginia. 1862.

Simon Schermerhorn-Native of New York; forty-five years of age; a cripple; for aught that appears before me his arrest and confinement were cruel. He was arrested near Yorktown, [Virginia], by a guard and never examined. He has some children here and some in New York, and some property there. Prefers to remain in Virginia if he can do so without losing his property at the North.
