This time-frame of moving of the prisoners suggests that John Lewis was too ill to be moved and therefore died in Andersonville. The movement of the prisoners and the confusion that must have ensued could also explain why some records I found for John did not specifically state he died at Andersonville, but said “no discharge furnished”.
