Biography

"Mrs. Katie Ransler (nee Bentz) telephoned me Jan. 5, 1971 to tell me that her father's older brother Theodore was a Rebel Scout and at some time was encamped at Cynthiana. He was very sickly and did not stay in the army, but returned home and died at age 21 of tuberculosis...She said that his stay in the army was quite brief and there might not be any record of it." -Jack Rouse , "The Civil War in Boone County, Kentucky"
