According to the Smith County Chronicles, Zachariah H. Crow was not on the 1870 census and it isn't known if he survived the war nor does he show up on any Union prisoner lists.

I forgot to mention "The Confederate Letters of Bryan Marsh," Chronicles of Smith County, Texas, Vol XIV, no. 2 (Winter 1975) which ran on pages 9-39 and 43-55. He also served in Company C and was elected captain at Little Rock.

Of the 313 men captured at the fall of Arkansas Post, 111 died. One-half of those who died were shut or hung as hostages. Company C had 14 men die and 5 men were left at Camp Douglas because they were too ill to travel.
