Sias Siers

Confederate Memoranda on Arrest of Isaac Siers or Isaac Sias, circa 1861-1862

Isaac Siers (on the book Sias).-Born in Monroe. Removed to Braxton, then to Nicholas County. Was a volunteer in Captain Chilton's company, in the regiment of Colonel Tompkins, now Colonel Jackson's. Says he was wounded in the right arm in a skirmish near Charleston. Was permitted to go home till his wound was healed. Says before his wound was healed he was arrested on suspicion and sent on here. Says he never was sworn in. Mr. Alderson, senator from this district, and Mr. Robinson, prosecuting attorney of Nicholas County, both say Siers is a man of bad character. Has been prosecuted for passing counterfeit bank notes and for other offenses. They say when he volunteered he was in jail in Nicholas on a charge of petit larceny. He is a good-natured man, but it is said he deserted from cowardice. Reference to the muster-rolls of his regiment ought to show whether he is a deserter. No political offense is charged against himn. I recommend he be turned over to the military department.
